Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding the news announced by President Trump that the deadly leader of the Islamic State group was killed in a US military operation in northwest Syria:

"Yesterday was a great day for Americans who love justice. Under the leadership of Commander-in-Chief Trump, one of the world’s most ruthless, evil, terrorist leaders, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi along with his reign of terror was brought to an abrupt but appropriate end. We owe our brave patriots who planned and participated a debt of gratitude for carrying out such a dangerous but superbly effective mission. The heroic actions of our U.S. military members have ensured that al-Baghdadi will never callously murder again.” 

“Though thIs is a significant victory for the United States in the war against ISIS, radical jihadists should understand the war against them is not over. We may move troops to different places, but we are never so far away that we can’t come back and clean up a murderous, malevolent cesspool of terrorists. Thankfully, we currently have a President who delivers justice to our evil enemies instead of mounds of money.”
