President Trump "changed the rules of engagement" the government uses to fight the Islamic State terror network, and in doing so, brought down its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said at the White House on Sunday, following al-Baghdadi's death at the hands of U.S. special forces.
Al-Baghdadi, who took over as the head of ISIS after his predecessor Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was killed in 2010, was said to have detonated a suicide vest as U.S. special forces closed in. Troops were sent to attack a compound in northern Syria where they found al-Baghdadi, according to a U.S. defense official. No U.S. Special Operations forces were harmed or killed during the mission, and Trump said the operation had been in the works for several weeks.
"When it comes to terrorism, the president changed the rules of engagement. You think the caliphate destroyed itself?" Graham said from the White House podium.
He also said Trump has fought terrorism with a "determination" and focus unlike anyone he's ever encountered.

Obama made sure U. S. funds were there for ISIS > IMO.
Trump and others have taken a hard line. Obama was their co-conspirator (again) > IMO.
Hey Lyndsey, it might come as news to you but that’s what a good president does.
The enemy of my enemy makes me think some of the billions Obama gave Iran helped find ISIS....even if they were on opposite sides of the Muslim fence.
Oh yes those who have made much money off of arms trading and Perpetual War. What kind words are coming from Graham and Romney today.
He [Graham] also said Trump has fought terrorism with a “determination” and focus unlike anyone he’s ever encountered.
Trump’s domestic enemies should take note.
ISIS oil was marketed by Erdogan’s son, which to me tells the whole story. Turkey was ISIS’s safe rear zone, and it was where they brought their wounded for treatment.
Trump really goes for the jugular. I think Graham didnt like him much at first because he thought Trump was all bluster. But a lot of Trumps former enemies are actually beginning to realize that Trump says what he means and means what he says...and theyre coming to respect him.
Meanwhile the GOP (perhaps willingly) is falling for the trap and screaming for opening the hearings so the rats can parade their lying witnesses out to be viewed by millions thereby giving 19 Rinos enough cover to give pence the crown. I dont know if it can work but l put nothing past these sobs
So is Graham going to give Trump his full-throated endorsement this time and call out his fellow Senator Mitt Romney for being a dick?
It won’t happen but a drone needs to put a Hellfire up the arse of the father of ISIS Obama.
It comes as a shock that unlike the ruling class who just say stuff to get elected, Trump actually means what he says and achieves results.
Now the backstabbing douchebag pretends he was with Trump all along. Can we please just primary this SOB?
President Trump cleverly uses twitter to 'filibluster' fanatical liberal fools.
Well there’s that. There was also the arming and funding he provided for ‘al Qaeda’ in Syria as if al Qaeda was some big friend of us. I’ve long suspected some of those weapons and the funding dropped into the lap of ISIS.
but they a NATO ally!!!!
They can do no wrong to some on here :)
