The United States is defeating the Islamic State (ISIS) only in Secretary of State John Kerry's imagination, real estate and entertainment billionaire Donald Trump told "Fox & Friends."

Kerry told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday the U.S.-led coalition was "on the road" to defeating the militant organization, and claimed the campaign had succeeded in taking out "a significant proportion of the top leadership of ISIS."

"We're only winning in (Kerry's) imagination," Trump said on Monday. "The fact is that we are not winning. We are losing big league, and they're getting stronger and stronger. And, they're laughing at these attacks. I mean, they're able to take these attacks very easily."

Trump also questioned why officials in the administration of President Barack Obama, instead of military leaders at the Pentagon, were making decisions about how to proceed in the fight against ISIS.

"We have somebody in the White House that did not study this. (Obama) does not know about the military. And, I guess from what we hear, (White House officials are) the ones that are leading the military, and they're not doing a very good job of it," Trump said.

The generals in the military should be bolder in "stepping up a little bit more" to advise Obama on strategy to defeat ISIS, Trump said, but suggested they held back because "you're not supposed to be taking on the president."

"Certainly, we have generals. We assume we have great generals. We hope we have great generals. We need great generals right now. We are under attack. We are, in a sense, really under attack," Trump said.
