(JNS) U.S. President Donald Trump announced this week that former Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s replacement has also been killed by U.S. troops.
“Just confirmed that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s number one replacement has been terminated by American troops,” tweeted Trump. “Most likely would have taken the top spot. Now he is also Dead!”
Al-Baghdadi led ISIS from 2010 until his death last weekend, when U.S. forces raided his compound in Syria, leading to the capture of ISIS members along with the death of al-Baghdadi and three of his children after he apparently activated his suicide vest.
