Islamic State have lost nearly all of their territory since Donald Trump was elected US President.
It is estimated that ISIS have now lost around 98% of territory they previously held.
And President Trump himself took to Twitter to point out the stats:
“On 1/20 – the day Trump was inaugurated – an estimated 35,000 ISIS fighters held approx 17,500 square miles of territory in both Iraq and Syria. As of 12/21, the U.S. military est the remaining 1,000 or so fighters occupy roughly 1,900 square miles..” @jamiejmcintyre @dcexaminer pic.twitter.com/OgYEuDgzD2

The Islamic extremists are being blasted abroad, though the threat to Europe is now huge as many may seek to come via migrant routes to carry out terror attacks.
