Breaking - 11p 10/26/19 Al-Baghdadi was killed by the US Military in an operation with help from the Russians, Iraqi’s…
Trump’s comments this morning - he must have mentioned that al-Baghdadi’s death was killed “like a dog” about 5 different times. T also mentions Russia as the number one help in getting al-Baghdadi in their sights…an obvious nod to his desire to get Russia back into a respectful world power, and part of G-7 etc.
T’s support of Russia, Turkey, Iran…and then downgrades the European alliances, and also does not say that Kurds were a vital part of this operation. Shameful.
And T’s commentary about oil…and securing the OIL.
Here’s T’s “I killed him…” and his heroic, presidential standing…and a coup to talk about for his 2020. T gets the drama award for bein’ presidential.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Sunday that terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, perhaps the world’s most wanted man, was killed during a special operations raid over the weekend.
“Last night the United States brought the world’s No. 1 terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said at the White House in an early morning televised address to the nation.
Al-Baghdadi led the extremist organization known as the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. Trump said he died after running into a dead-end tunnel while being chased by United States Special Operations commandos in Northwest Syria. Al-Baghdadi detonated an explosive vest that killed him as well as three of his children, Trump said.
He died like a dog," Trump said. “He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place.""He was a sick and depraved man, and now he’s gone,” Trump said.
Al-Baghdadi is the highest-ranking terrorist to be killed or captured since the death of Osama bin Laden in 2011.
