Schumer: Fight Against ISIS Must Continue

NEW YORK – It has been more than 24 hours since President Donald Trump announced the death of the world’s most wanted terrorist, and now, New York’s Senior Senator says the fight against ISIS must continue.

“My reaction? Look, it’s great that we’ve gotten Al-Baghdadi and killed him,” said New York Senator Church Schumer. “He’s a dangerous man, an evil man. The fight against ISIS has to continue.”







The White House says the operation was named after an American who was kidnapped and reportedly raped by the ISIS leader while being held hostage by the organization.

Kayla Mueller traveled to the Turkey-Syria border in 2012 to do humanitarian work.







ISIS kidnapped her in 2013 after she visited a Doctor’s Without Borders hospital.

The family confirmed Mueller’s death two years later, but her body was never found.













After hearing news of Baghdadi’s death over the weekend, they thanked the President, U.S. Military, and special forces for taking action.

Mueller’s parents said the situation has them feeling a “roller coaster of emotions.”

They want their daughter to be remembered as someone with a “tender heart”.
