Qassim al-Rimi ridiculed the president in 2017 after an attack targeting him failed to take him out.
It’s a safe bet that he will not be mocking him from Yemen (although he could taunt him from hell, where he will not collect 72 virgins).
Al-Rimi was killed in a bombing raid in Yemen. He is the third most powerful terrorist leader president Trump has had killed over the last six months or so.
The NYT, quoting officials within the Pentagon, says they are confident that al-Rimi was killed in the raid.
He had previously said of President Trump, “The fool of the White House got slapped at the beginning of his road in your lands.” Well, Trump didn’t get stopped, al-Rimi did.
Leadership in terrorist organizations are dropping at an alarming rate. (Alarming for them, not for us.)
Qassim al-Rimi was the leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen.
Yemen is a war-torn country who has been suffering from endless terrorists trying to overthrow the government.
Qassim al-Rimi ridiculed the president in 2017 after a failed US military strike in Yemen intended to target him.
“The fool of the White House got slapped at the beginning of his road in your lands,” al-Rimi said on a recording after the strike.
The New York Times reported that several American officials were confident that al-Rimi was killed in the January airstrike.
The report said an informant provided US forces in November with the location of the the head of al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen.
Journalist Shelley Carbone also reported that US officials were working to confirm the death of al-Rimi.
A US Defense Official told CNN, “While we are aware of the reports alleging the death of AQAP leader Qassim al-Rimi, the Department of Defense has nothing to offer on this matter.”
Al-Rimi had threatened to attack American targets, and the US government had offered $10 million in reward for information about him.
