Donald Trump has been obsessing over the death of Islamic State leader Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi and has tried to promote himself as the hero of the operation. He has even gloated that Baghdadi died “whimpering and crying.”

On Monday, The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, was asked if Trump’s claims were factual or not.

Milley said he had not verified that description.

“The secretary was asked the same question yesterday,” Milley told reporters. “I know the president had planned to talk down to the unit and unit members, but I don’t know what the source of that was. I assume it was talking directly to unit and unit members.

Milley acknowledged that he had not spoken to any unit members who described Baghdadi’s death in those terms.

“I have not talked to unit members, that’s correct,” Milley said. “I’ve talked to the commanders and CENTCOM, but not down to the members.”
