Former Vice President Joe Biden said that President Trump and his administration “deserves some credit” for defeating ISIS at an event on immigration and refugees at the University of Pennsylvania on Thursday.
“We know now that in Iraq, we’ve defeated ISIS,” Biden said to the Philadelphia crowd. “The Trump administration deserves some credit for this because they finished the job.”
However, the former vice president called for a concerted effort to rebuild Iraq to prevent “ISIS 2.0” from rising. Biden told the crowd that stabilizing the region would cut the number of refugees pouring into the western world by “hundreds of thousands.”
