WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement after President Trump announced the successful raid to kill ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

“Today is a great day for our country and a great day for the world. Baghdadi was the epitome of inhumanity, and his death sends a strong message that the U.S. will always seek justice against those who inflict evil on the world.

“We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the brave special forces who conducted the raid and to President Trump for his strong leadership in dismantling the ISIS caliphate. When our intelligence community and military have the tools to succeed, they can take on any threat to our nation. Every American should celebrate this major victory in the war on terror.”
