“Last night, the United States brought the world’s Number One terrorist leader to justice,” President Donald J. Trump said
yesterday from the East Room of the White House.
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”
The terrorist leader’s “death represents a significant symbolic victory in the battle against the terror group and marks the end of a years-long effort to track down the elusive ISIS leader, who had been reported killed multiple times in the past,” Morgan Chalfant reports for The Hill. “Trump declared that al-Baghdadi’s death demonstrated the United States's ‘relentless pursuit of terrorist leaders and our commitment to the enduring and total defeat of ISIS and other terrorist organizations.’”
