Donald Trump will give his top military officials a maximum of a month to deliver a plan to vanquish ISIS if he wins the Oval Office, he said Tuesday.

The Republican presidential nominee outlined the order before a small crowd in North Carolina. “We are going to convey my top generals and give them a simple instruction,” Trump said, according to ABC News. “They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS. We have no choice.”

Trump and Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton are set to discuss military and veterans’ issues Wednesday night at a “commander-in-chief forum,” which is hosted in New York City and sponsored by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
