Vice President Mike Pence announced that “ISIS has been defeated” soon after an ISIS suicide attack in Manbij, Syria killed four U.S. soldiers (video below):
We’re bringing our troops home, the Caliphate has crumbled and ISIS has been defeated.
Pence then contradicted himself about bringing the troops home by saying the troops would stay in the region:
Now we’ll stay in the region and we’ll stay and fight to make sure that ISIS does not rear its ugly head again.
