    According to the US president, the fight against Daesh would be over sooner than predicted.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The fight against Daesh will be over sooner than predicted, US President Donald Trump said in a joint press conference with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Wednesday.

    "That’s what we speak about today, and that’s what we’re going to do, and it will be a shorter fight than a lot of people are thinking about… we’ve made tremendous strides," Trump stated.

    Trump also praised Abdullah as a leader in the fight against Daesh.
