Just hours after a major diplomatic victory, President Trump tweeted that five ISIS leaders had been captured.
Trump likely got little (if any) sleep as he and Melania greeted released American prisoners from North Korea early Thursday morning.

Not long after, Trump announced the big news that the war against ISIS continues to pound the terrorist group into the dustbin of history.
From the New York Times:
Five senior Islamic State officials have been captured, including a top aide to the group’s leader, in a complex cross-border sting carried out by Iraqi and American intelligence, two Iraqi officials said Wednesday.
The three-month operation, which tracked a group of senior Islamic State leaders who had been hiding in Syria and Turkey, represents a significant intelligence victory for the American-led coalition fighting the extremist group and underscores the strengthening relationship between Washington and Baghdad.
Is there any doubt that President Trump’s tough stance is a winning strategy for America and world? The big news travelled quickly as Fox News covered the fantastic victory:
