US Military Troops have been doing well in IS affected Iraq and America is making progress in its fight in the war-ravaged country against ISIS, said President Donald Trump.

At a reception hosted for Senators and their spouses on Tuesday, Trump said soldiers were fighting like never before and results are very good.

“We are doing well. I just had long call with (Defense Secretary) Gen (retd James) Mattis. We are doing really well in Iraq. Our soldiers are fighting, and fighting like never before, and the results are very good, so I just wanted to let everyone know,” Trump said.

The dinner reception was attended by a large number of Senators. However, as per the list of attendees, the only Indian-American Senator Kamala Harris from the Democratic Party did not attend it.

Trump exuded confidence that the healthcare bill, which could not be passed last week, would be passed eventually.
