President Trump campaigned on correcting Barack Obama’s errors.
There was an Obama disaster that stood out above all the rest.
And Donald Trump kept this one promise that is bad news for Barack Obama.
One of the many stains on the Obama presidency – and maybe the biggest disgrace of Obama’s time in office – was Obama creating the conditions for the radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS to rise.
Obama tried to laugh off ISIS by dismissing the Islamic terrorists as the “jayvee team.”
In 2014 then-President Obama told the New Yorker’s David Remnick that “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”
But ISIS seized territory across Iraq and Syria to create a caliphate – which was the size of Great Britain – and inspired as well as launched terrorist attacks across the globe and in America.
Donald Trump campaigned on obliterating ISIS, bringing America’s troops home from the Middle East.
In the first three years of the Trump administration the U.S. military assisted in operations that seized 100 percent of the ISIS caliphate.
President Trump then ordered a withdrawal of American forces from Syria.
The President’s critics ranted and raved on social media and cable news that the President made a catastrophic error and that ISIS would reconstitute and gain in strength.
However President Trump ended up getting the last laugh.
On Saturday night, President Trump fired off a cryptic tweet promising big news.
“Something very big has just happened!” the President wrote.
Within hours, Americans learned President Trump ordered a U.S. military operation in Syria that resulted in the death of ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
U.S. forces located al-Baghdadi in a compound in Syria and succeeded in executing a daring raid where special forces killed ISIS fighters and chased al-Baghdadi down a dead-end tunnel as the ISIS founder fled like a coward.
Al-Baghdadi died in a cowardly fashion using three small children as human shields as he detonated his suicide vest.
Fox News national security reporter Jennifer Griffin filled in more details about the operation.
“I am told 50-70 American military service members involved in the raid- pulled from US Army Delta Force and Rangers. About 6 helicopters involved in raid. ‘It was a partnered mission,’ US official source tells me. Baghdadi was killed when he detonated suicide vest,” Griffin reported.
“Biometrics (facial recognition) immediately identified Baghdadi- in suicide bombing head removed intact. DNA also used – typically takes a day for DNA results. US forces launched from Erbil, Iraq. There had been reports of sightings of Baghdadi in Idlib for some time, US official,” Griffin added.
The military and President Trump secured a major victory in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.
And killing al-Baghdadi also cleaned up one of Barack Obama’s biggest mistakes.
