Proving Donald Trump's political acumen once again, ISIS has been on the run ever since president Obama uttered the phrase "radical islamists."
Political analysts are saying it was just a coincidence that Obama gave a speech where he mentioned the phrase while at the same time the US and its allies were making major gains against ISIS held territory. At the time of the speech Obama insisted the words had no magic power to destroy the terror group.
Donald Trump was quick to take credit for the recent progress against ISIS with a self congratulatory tweet: @realDonaldTrump I've been saying this all along, now we're beating ISIS because president Ebola finally said radical Islamism. #sayradicalislam
Others like columnist Charles Krauthammer have noted that former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also mentioned the phrase "radical islamists" right before the recent military success against the group.
