MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Trump’s Actions in Syria and Afghanistan showed the world that the United States restored its power, US Vice President Michael Pence said during presidential rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
"When the world saw our President’s strength and resolve in the actions he took in Syria and Afghanistan, the credibility of American power was restored," Pence said.
He added that thanks to Trump’s actions, Daesh (outlawed in Russia and other countries) is "on the run in Iraq, in Syria, in Afghanistan."
"We will not rest until we destroy ISIS [Daesh] once and for all," the Vice President stressed.
On April 13, US military dropped the 22,000-pound GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province targeting a tunnel complex which, according to the US Central Command, was used by Daesh’s local affiliate. The MOAB, dubbed the "Mother of All Bombs," is the largest non-nuclear bomb developed by the United States and had not been used in combat before the Nangarhar operation.
