Chris Cuomo Says ‘Hell Yeah’ Trump Deserves Credit For al-Baghdadi Raid

Shelby Talcott on October 29, 2019

CNN’s Chris Cuomo said Monday evening that “hell yeah” President Donald Trump deserves credit for killing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Al-Baghdadi detonated a suicide vest while hiding out in a tunnel inside a northern Syrian compound as U.S. military forces raided, killing himself and three of his children. Trump confirmed that a DNA test determined the body was that of the ISIS leader Sunday morning.

Cuomo said on “Cuomo Prime Time” Monday evening that the president absolutely deserves credit for killing the notorious terrorist.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, dead on this president’s watch,” Cuomo said. “Should he get credit? Hell yeah, he should …”


The CNN host continued on to explain why “a win is never good enough” for Trump, noting that the president said “another president should have gotten him.” Cuomo said he means that “his win must also be a loss for Obama.”

“He should have been killed years ago. Another president should’ve gotten him,” Trump said during a televised speech Sunday. The president did not call out any former president by name for failing to kill the ISIS leader.

Al-Baghdadi was responsible for mass murder and terrorism, leading a group responsible for execution propaganda videos, including the one showing American journalist James Foley being beheaded in 2014. He was also responsible for reportedly repeatedly raping and torturing Arizona aid worker Kayla Mueller after she was taken hostage in 2013. Mueller is believed to have died in 2015.

  • Clinton had 11 chances to get Bin laden but wouldn't pull trigger. Obama had a zillion chances to get ISIS but lamely claimed "it would hurt the environment". didn't lift a finger to help the Democrats newest BFF, the Kurds. kidnapping, beheadings, rapes on Christian minorities but Obama played golf and watched ESPN. poor Fredo, he wants respect.

  • I sleep easier knowing Trump is in the White House! I don't like Cuomo and I never watch CNN anymore but I was glad to see he gave Trump credit for killing Al-Baghdadi.

  • Why is this true; “his win must also be a loss for Obama.” Because Al-Baghdadi was in custody and Obama let him loose. Look it up people.

  • Whatever Cuomo says is not worth a cent. Tonight he, Cooper and Lemmon were againg throwing mud at Trump and his supporters.
    Unfortunately Trump didn't foresee the possibility of Anti-American moles in the WH and other security sensitive places. He now has to uproot them one by one after they showed their true colors. And people wonder why Trump resorted to external aides such as Giuliani. He had no choice, when the moles try to control American foreign policy above President's head.

  • Trump has had more success against terrorism than Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, W., and Obama combined. Period.
