What ISIS Fighters Think of Trump

Isis fighters view of TrumpNine days after 9/11, George W. Bush declared during an address to a joint session of Congress that every nation now “has a decision to make,” that “either you are with us or with the terrorists.” Jihadists saw his statement as a gift from God.

Owens, a navy Seal, died in Yemen on 28 January, in the first military operation Trump authorized as president. His legacy is “etched into eternity”, Trump said on Tuesday night.

While the president paid tribute to Owens, questions persist about the fateful mission in which the serviceman lost his life. In the hours before the speech, Fox News broadcast an interview with Trump in which he appeared to distance himself from the operation.
