CNN Reporter: Trump's Speech On ISIS Leader Death "Echoed The Crudeness" You Would Expect From ISIS

|

CNN Senior International Correspondent Nick Paton Walsh expressed his concern about the language President Trump used to describe the downfall and death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a speech delivered Sunday morning. Walsh said Trump's statement had moments that "jarred" him and called it "disturbing" to hear the president describe how al-Baghdadi was run down by U.S. forces.

"There were lots of moments during Donald Trump's speech which jarred to some degree," Walsh lamented Sunday. "It was extraordinary how the communications were managed. There's a long trail ahead of him releasing details, explicit details. Some of them echoed frankly the crudeness you would often expect to hear maybe from ISIS about the whimpering, screaming al-Baghdadi pinned down in a sealed tunnel, killing himself and his three children. It was sort of disturbing to hear to some degree and also I think a moment possibly too where it felt like Donald Trump was in awe of watching this apparatus unfold around him saying himself it looked like he was watching a movie. He got to watch a lot of it. Interesting to see what further details we will learn."
