President Trump announced a major victory against the enemies of America when he divulged that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was taken out in a special operations mission.
On Saturday night, the leader of the free world took to Twitter to tease that “something big just happened” and it was announced that Trump would address the nation on Sunday morning.
Something very big has just happened!

President Trump announced Sunday that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed in a U.S. military raid in Syria.
“Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice,” Trump said in remarks from the East Room of the White House. “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.”
Baghdadi’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 has been reported killed multiple times in the past.
Trump described the operation in detail, saying Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest after being cornered in a tunnel by U.S. Special Forces troops. Trump said test results confirmed Baghdadi was killed.
“The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, in total panic and dread, terrified of the American forces bearing down on him,” Trump said.
President Trump then dished the details of Baghdadi’s final moments before he was sent to his great reward.
«He died after running into a dead end tunnel whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.»

So much for the hogwash that Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria would lead to a resurgence of ISIS which is on the run and now decapitated thanks to the decisive action by our great leader who unlike his predecessor, isn’t a waffling wimp.
The high value kill was also hailed by the General Commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces as a successful joint operation with the USA.
Successful& historical operation due to a joint intelligence work with the United States of America.

Baghdadi had long been sought by the United States as head of a jihadist group that at one point controlled large areas of Syria and Iraq, where it declared a caliphate. Islamic State has carried out atrocities against religious minorities and attacks on five continents in the name of a version of an ultra-fanatic Islam that horrified mainstream Muslims.
In recent years the group had lost most of its territory.
But while the destruction of the quasi-state that Baghdadi built has denied the group its recruiting tool and logistical base from which it could train fighters and plan coordinated attacks overseas, most security experts believe Islamic State remains a threat through clandestine operations or attacks.
“The thug who tried so hard to intimidate others spent his last moments in utter fear, panic and dread, terrified of the American forces coming down on him,” Trump said.
Trump said Baghdadi died after running into a dead-end tunnel.
“He reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down. He ignited his vest, killing himself and his three children. His body was mutilated by the blasts. The tunnel had caved on him,” Trump added.
Trump ceasefire = surrender to Erdogan.
Erdogan gets to stay in Syria. President Trump has no plan for the enduring defeat of ISIS.
The U.S., our national security, and the Syrian Kurds lose.

Also choking down a generous helping of the bird are members of the degenerate cast of “Saturday Night Live” which last night featured blowhard Alec Baldwin and weirdo Pete Davidson mocking Trump for bringing jobs back to ISIS after pulling U.S. troops from Syrian areas.
