US President Donald Trump on Thursday (Jan 26) described Islamic State as "dirty rats," during an interview.
"They're sneaky, dirty rats and they blow people up in a shopping centre and they blow people up in a church. These are bad people" Trump told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity.
"We are fighting sneaky rats right now that are sick and demented. And we're going to win," he added.
During the interview Trump also said he was ready to name his pick to fill the open slot on the US Supreme Court. "I have made my decision pretty much in my mind, yes. That's subject to change at the last moment, but I think this will be a great choice."
Earlier this month Trump said he would pick from among 20 candidates suggested by conservative legal groups to fill the vacancy caused by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia in February last year.
