    Many social media users went on to bash the news agency and praise the people responsible for al-Baghdadi’s alleged demise.

    As US President Donald Trump boasted about American forces killing terrorist leader al-Baghdadi in Syria, his campaign moved to bash CNN over cutting Trump’s “announcement to the nation”.

    Tweeting a fragment of the CNN’s footage in question, Team Trump claimed that the media outlet “completely disrespects” the president, as wells as “our service men and women & America”.

    ​Many social media users seemed to echo their sentiment, bashing the news agency and praising the people responsible for al-Baghdadi’s alleged demise.

    Some, however, recalled a comment made by a certain someone regarding another assassination a while ago.

    Previously, Trump confirmed that US special forces had killed terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, claiming that the latter "died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way."

    The Russian Defence Ministry noted, however, that it has no reliable information regarding this development, and that the reports of the terrorist leader's alleged demise are unlikely to have any serious impact on the current situation in Syria.
