‘This is a Game Changer’: Lindsey Graham Demands Trump’s Critics To Praise The President After ISIS Raid

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) praised Donald Trump on Sunday after the president announced a U.S. military raid that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Graham called the development is a “game-changer” and urged Trump’s critics to praise the president for ordering the military operation.

“This is a moment where we should all be proud of our American military and our intelligence community. This is a moment where President Trump’s worst critics should say, ‘well done Mr. President,’” Graham told reporters at the White House.

The GOP senator also complemented Trump for “coming up with a model in Syria that we probably should have done in Iraq,” calling the president’s strategy a “game-changer.”

Graham had criticized Trump in recent weeks over the president’s decision to remove U.S. troops from northern Syria, where they had been fighting alongside Kurdish forces against ISIS.

But after al-Baghdadi’s death was announced, Graham said on Sunday that he’s “very encouraged” by what he sees in Syria.

Trump said during his announcement of the ISIS leader’s death that some congressional leader had not been notified of the raid before his public announcement out of fear of “leaks.” He said Graham and Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) had been told before the operation was complete.
