President Donald Trump applauded the capture of the Islamic State’s capital Raqqa in Syria in a statement Saturday afternoon.
“I am pleased to announce that the Syrian Democratic Forces, our partners in the fight against ISIS in Syria, have successfully recaptured Raqqah – the terrorist group’s self-proclaimed capital city,” Trump said. “Together, our forces have liberated the entire city from ISIS control.”
