President Donald Trump huddled with top advisers at the Pentagon Thursday for a national security briefing that included the ongoing fight against ISIS.
The over two-hour long meeting in a secure room called "The Tank" was expected to cover the "state of the world" in broad strokes, a senior administration official told NBC News earlier. Trump was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford.
Asked if he was planning on sending more troops to Afghanistan, President Trump said "we'll see," adding a short assessment that "we're doing very well against ISIS. ISIS is falling fast. Very fast," before heading into the Pentagon.
After the meeting — which he deemed "absolutely great" — Trump was vague about if any decisions had been made on Afghanistan. "You'll be hearing," he said without elaborating.
