'We're really winning': Trump on US military successes

President Donald Trump thanked U.S. troops for their service, assuring them "we're really winning" against America's foes. Trump told deployed military members via a video conference that they've achieved more progress in Afghanistan and against the Islamic State group under his watch than had been made in years of the previous administration. "They say we've made more progress against ISIS than they did in years of the previous administration," he said. "And that's because I'm letting you do your job."
"In a fight, you know a fight like I watch on the movies ... how good is it?" he recalled asking. "They said, 'Well, it wins every time because the enemy cannot see it, even if it's right next to it.'".

The F-35, horribly plagued by development problems and cost overruns, is in fact not invisible to people. Its stealth technology is designed to evade detection by radar and other sensors.
