During an interaction with reporters outside the White House on Wednesday, President Donald Trump held up a map of Syria and vowed that the terrorist organization would be "gone by tonight."
The map included two images showing the decrease in lands occupied by the Islamic State today compared to when Trump was elected.

Twitter users commandeered the image of Trump and went wild with it.
Someone made a more Trump-friendly map.
"As you can see on this detailed map I got printed...we're defeating ISIS!" #trump #map https://t.co/ATNnA5QNf8— DogsHateBoots (@DogsHateBoots) 1553178414.0
There are a lot of important and utterly strange happenings in the political sphere right now - like Devin Nunes (R-CA), Trump's lapdog California Congressman, suing a fake cow.
