Assad Peeved with Trump's Poor Fighting of IS; Trump Takes No Action Promised in Campaign

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said today (March 11, 2017) that he hasn't seen President Donald Trump's administration take any real steps to defeat the Islamic State (IS), despite Trump's strong rhetoric on the matter during his campaign, according to The Daily Beast website.

Assad made the comments in an interview with a Chinese TV station.

Although Trump had offered "a promising approach" in making the fight against IS a top priority during his campaign, Assad said, Trump has yet to live up to all his hype.

Assad dismissed the current U.S. operations in Syria against the terrorist group as "only a few raids," but expressed hope that Trump's White House would "implement what we have heard."
