President Donald Trump promised to reporters at the White House on Wednesday evening that the ISIS presence in Syria would be wiped out.
To further illustrate his plans, the president held up a piece of paper displaying two maps of Syria and throughout Middle East, pointing out the progress status of the ISIS defeat. He detailed that its presence had decreased since his election in 2016, Politico reports.
The first map revealed several parts being marked in red, which was said to be how much ISIS had penetrated the area on election night in 2016. The second map, which barely showed any red spots, purportedly indicated how the Islamic State’s presence would be “gone by tonight.”
While POTUS planned to emphasize that his administration was eliminating terrorism, many Twitter users took the opportunity to poke fun at his declaration.
They replaced the maps with phrases or pictures that were perhaps more accurate to the predicament of the US. One Twitter user swapped it with the phrase, “I hereby resign the Office of President of the United States,” while another photoshopped it into a swastika symbol.
