President Donald Trump spoke to reporters moments ago before he departed on a 12-day trip to Asia.
He emphatically declared that the U.S. will strike ISIS “10 times harder” after the terror group claimed credit for Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City.
“What we’re doing is every time we’re attacked from this point forward, we’re hitting them 10 times harder. … They claimed him as a soldier. Good luck. Every time they hit us, we know it’s ISIS, we hit them like you folks won’t believe,” he said, referring to the 29-year-old Uzbek attacker as an “animal.”
