NBC News Analyst James Stavridis on ISIS: "For The Record, I Would Say They're Better Than Donald Trump"

|

NBC national security analyst Ret. Admiral James Stavridis on President Donald Trump's announcement Sunday morning that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed like a dog: "I think that that tape will be played, particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as an extremely evocative, negative, and I think that will become a recruiting tool that the Islamic State uses on the internet and for the record, I would say they're better than Donald Trump. They're managing currently to conduct global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter, after we took away the caliphate from them, which was another good accomplishment, they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the internet to recruit, proselytize and conduct the operation. They will use this footage to motivate their followers, to recruit more. It's really not how we want to play this. "
