Last month President Trump took out one of the top terrorists in the world who was known for killing at least 600 American soldiers. I'm speaking of Qasem Soleimani.
Now, the President was able to take out another top ranking terrorist, Qassim al-Rimi who was a leader of Al Qaeda.
“The officials expressed confidence that the Qaeda leader, Qassim al-Rimi, was killed in a January airstrike in Yemen but were awaiting confirmation before making a public announcement,” The New York Times reported. “If confirmed, his death could represent a significant blow to the Qaeda affiliate, which remains one of the most potent branches of the terrorist group. The Yemen branch, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has tried to attack the United States and Europe and is thought to still want to.”
The Times reported the CIA learned about al-Rimi’s location in November from an informant in Yemen and then started to track him using drones and other technology.
Thomas Joscelyn, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Times: “He was an Al Qaeda veteran whose career started in the camps in pre-9/11 Afghanistan. After he was busted out of prison, he was part of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s relaunch management team, becoming their military commander.”
I hate it that the Democrats are so up in arms against this President because he is doing so much good for our country. Fortunately, although the Democrats my be slowing him down, he's not letting them stop him. For example, take a look back a year ago when they weren't willing to give him a penny for the border wall. What happened? He now has all the money that he needs to get the wall completed and they're getting up built as quickly as possible.
