Just weeks ago, the United States, (and the world in general), received some fairly astonishing news: ISIS had been virtually wiped out in Syria; a country long thought to be the dastardly organization’s only true stronghold.
This was a monumental development not only for the thousands upon thousands of victims of radical Islam, but also for U.S. President Donald Trump who had made the annihilation of ISIS one of his top priorities during the arduous 2016 presidential campaign.
The world at large was ecstatic.
What part of the Trump Presidency do you hate the most?
GDP trending up
Annihilation of ISIS
America 1st trade deals
Record low unemployment
Return of manufacturing jobs
Record Consumer Confidence
Its just awful! Must resist!

Defense Secretary Mattis was FIRED by #BarackObama in 2013.
BECAUSE HE WANTED TO DEFEAT #ISIS.

Now, with ISIS functionally flummoxed in Syria, the radical Islamic terror group is returning to their old tricks, threatening to attack New York City in the coming days.
In its latest warning, uploaded to militant Islamist messaging platforms, a man is pictured standing on the platform at New York’s High Street – Brooklyn Bridge Station with explosives and a timer behind him.
Here’s a quick glimpse at the heinous bit of propaganda.

We’ve been privy to such threats from ISIS before, but the terror organization has only had mild success in attacking the U.S. on her soil. Their most effective campaigns have been executed by American citizens who were radicalized by the group, rather than actual ISIS operatives within our borders.
That fact can be attributed to the powerful immigration stance taken by U.S. President Donald Trump over the last 15 months – something that the American liberals were wholly opposed to during the 2016 election.
