Kayla Mueller's family praised President Trump and the commandos who carried out the daring raid killing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on a site near the Turkish border on Sunday and the mother of those killed Helper made a stinging reprimand from President Obama's handling of the capture of her daughter.
The 26-year-old miller was a humanitarian worker from Prescott, Arizona. She was captured during the bloody civil war in 2013 in Aleppo, Syria, and tortured until her death 18 months later.
Marsha Mueller, the woman's mother, praised President Trump and the Special Operations Commands who raided the area and told the Republic of Arizona that her daughter might still be alive if "Obama was as crucial as Trump." ,
Kayla Müller's parents said Sunday that they hope the ISIS leader's death will provide more answers about what happened to their daughter. Although they confirmed their death by images sent by fighters, their daughter's body was never salvaged.
Al-Baghdadi is said to have been one of her rapists who "married" her during her imprisonment.
"She was detained many prisons," said her father Carl Muller on Sunday of the Republic. "She was held in solitary confinement, she was tortured, she was intimidated, and she was eventually raped by al-Baghdadi herself."
"She was held in solitary confinement, she was tortured, she was intimidated and she was eventually raped by al-Baghdadi herself."
The Obama administration was arrested for a reported rescue mission from 2015, which was directed against four prisoners held in a makeshift ISIS prison.
When US commandos stormed the site, the hostages were already gone. Some relatives and people involved in the raid blamed the White House for not acting fast enough to give the mission the green light.
TRUMP KEPT RAID SECRET FROM PELOSI
President Obama said in a later interview that it was inaccurate to say the US had not done everything to save the hostages. Susan Rice, his former National Security Advisor, explained the 2015 approval process. The raid could not have been faster.
Meanwhile, Trump described the weekend raid in northwestern Syria and said military helicopters flew over an area now controlled by Russian and Syrian forces before it landed on the compound.
Trump described al-Baghdadi as a death "in a vicious and violent manner, as a coward, running and crying."
"He died like a dog, he died like a coward," said Trump in a speech to the nation on Sunday morning.
Trump said al-Baghdadi died after he detonated a suicide vest and killed himself. Trump said three children who were with al-Baghdadi were also killed in the explosion. Eleven other small children were taken out of the area unhurt, Trump said.
"Our range is very large," said Trump. He referred to the recent death of Hamza bin Laden, the son of Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden. "These wild monsters will not escape their fate and the final judgment of God."

Trump said, "Al-Baghdadi and the losers who work for him" had "no idea what they're getting involved with."
Carl Mueller, a supporter of Trumps in 2016, told the republic that the president knows his daughter's story.
"I do not think anything would stop him from finding this guy," he said.
