President Trump Takes Shot at Obama ‘Another President Should Have Gotten Baghdadi, But to Me It Was Very Important’ (VIDEO)
President Trump spoke on Monday at the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference at McCormick Place in Chicago.
During his remarks, President Trump took a veiled shot at Barack Obama when he brought up the ISIS raid in northern Syria that sent Baghdadi to hell.
Army Delta Force and Army Rangers led the way and closed in on Baghdadi’s lair in an overnight firefight and the ISIS leader died “crying, whimpering and screaming.”
“He’s dead! He’s dead as a door nail and he didn’t die bravely, either, I will tell you that,” Trump said to cheers on Monday.
“He should have been killed years ago. Another president should have gotten him. But to me it was a very important,” Trump added, taking a shot at Barack Obama for doing nothing to eliminate ISIS.
In fact, ISIS flourished under Barack Obama and Baghdadi was handed over to Iraqi authorities in 2009 under Obama’s watch.
"He didn’t die bravely, either, I will tell you that.
… He should have been killed years ago. Another president should have gotten him. But to me it was a very important."
