US President, Donald Trump, said the leader of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, died like a dog and a coward.
He stated this on Sunday while briefing the media on the US Military raid in Syria.
“He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place. God bless America”, Trump said.
The US President said that Baghdadi led his three children to death, detonating his suicide vest, which brought the tunnel they were in down around them.
“He was an animal and he was a gutless animal.”
President Trump said that Baghdadi’s followers should be told how he died. “He didn’t die a hero, he died a coward,” says Trump. “Crying, whimpering and screaming and bringing three kids with him.”
He said the operation started two weeks ago, adding that many of Baghdadi’s team were killed and that the exact number would be confirmed in the coming days.
Trump said the US lost no personnel in the operation, despite being greeted with “fire power like you wouldn’t believe”. He added that a US dog was injured.
