Letter: What happened to ISIS?

Has anyone else noticed that you don’t hear anything about ISIS since Donald Trump has become president?

I think of the crazy things that have gone on since Trump became president — voter fraud, ban on Muslims, Ivanka’s clothing line, “so-called judges,” the fight with the president of Mexico, the bad vibes with the prime minister of Australia, fake news and the list goes on.

Maybe this is a smoke screen to keep us from asking the question: Trump, what is your secret plan that you talked about during the primary to rid the world of ISIS?

Remember, he “knows more than the generals.” Maybe he thinks if he keeps tweeting about crazy things (mentioned above) the press will not ask the question and it will cease to exist. This reminds me of what John Wayne said to his “son” in the movie “Big Jake” — “You are long on mouth and short on ears.”
