The leftist media is already trying to downplay and divert attention from some great news that came out late last night:
President Trump has another win thanks to the US Special Forces, who participated in a raid to capture ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
President Trump’s statement included some great lines:
“Last night, the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice.”
“He died in a vicious and violent way. As a coward, running and crying.”
“He died like a dog. He died like a coward. The world is now a much safer place.”
"Last night the United States brought the world's number one terrorist leader to justice."
President @realDonaldTrump confirms that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi was killed in a US military operation.

“Terrorists who oppress and murder innocent people should never sleep soundly, knowing that we will completely destroy them. These savage monsters will not escape their fate, and they will not escape the final judgment of God.” ~ PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO THANKED OUR INCREDIBLE MILITARY FORCES: “I want to thank the soldiers and sailors, airmen and Marines involved in last night’s operation. You are the very best there is anywhere in the world.”
US forces launched from Erbil, Iraq. There had been reports of sightings of Baghdadi in Idlib for some time.
Jennifer Griffin of Fox News tweeted out details overnight:
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.

.The coward ISIS leader committed suicide during the raid by blowing himself up using a suicide vest.
Facial recognition technology, aka biometrics, identified Baghdadi. It’s being reported by an official that in the suicide bombing, the ISIS leader’s head removed intact. DNA will also be tested and will take a day.
This is a huge defeat for ISIS!
President Trump tweeted out overnight that “Something very big just happened!”
It’s being reported by a top Kurdish general that “joint intelligence work” with the Syrian Democratic Forces was shared with the US forces:

The spin from the media and Democrats has already begun to downplay this win:
What this correspondent isn’t telling the viewer is that the release of some ISIS fighters could have been a tactic used to draw out the location of the ISIS leader. Also, speculation is that this raid and attack will be one of several on ISIS in the coming days.
"This is important. Baghdadi is a key figurehead," @IanPannell reports. But "the physical impact on the group is going to be limited."

They will somehow try and make this great win into something else. It’s how the leftist media and politicians operates. It has begun with none other than political hack John Harwood:
Snap take from media yappers: Taking out ISIS leader is actually bad for Trump.
Gotta give them at least something for consistency. https://t.co/iJffJQy1No

Most Americans will appreciate this huge win in the fight against terrorism, thanks to our incredible military!
Flashback to 2016 where trump addresses the ISIS leader during a rally:
While waiting for Trump to soeak about ISIS founder #Baghdadi killing: Flashback to 2016: Trump calls Obama the founder of ISIS. And Hillary Clinton the co-founder. He also said Obama shouldn’t get credit for killing bin Laden. https://t.co/WHPtyVFzPs pic.twitter.com/GToK73vK7L
