We always knew that Melania Trump was an incredible First Lady. Elegant and beautiful, unlike Michelle. An actual fashion plate that refused to wear table clothes like Dr. Jill. But, something that we didn’t know then, but are finding out now is that she aided the president during the planning of the assassination of ISIS leader Rl Baghdadi. The team was trying to figure out how to tell the American people about the operation in a way they could understand.
Melania spoke up and told the president that he should talk about the courageous dog that aided in the killing of the terrorist. She said that almost everybody loves dogs. So, when the time came, President Trump spoke of Conan’s bravery for which the dog later got a medal. Melania was right because people almost loved the story as much as they loved that another significant terrorist was dead.
Here is the story from the Daily Caller:
Then-first lady Melania Trump sat in one of the Situation Room’s most important chairs during the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and offered former President Donald Trump advice after the attack, former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller reveals in his new book.
Melania Trump’s presence in the Situation Room was “unexpected,” and she entered as the president’s executive team was “waiting for the final assault” on al-Baghdadi, Miller wrote, according to an excerpt exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller.
“Secretary of Defense Mark Esper quickly gave up his seat and she sat down next to the President, who introduced her to us as if we didn’t know who she was. Her presence was unexpected, to say the least. I wondered how it would play in the press if word got out that the First Lady had popped in to watch a major military operation.
Not my problem, I figured. And after all, it was her house,” Miller wrote in “Soldier Secretary: Warnings from the Battlefield & the Pentagon about America’s Most Dangerous Enemies,” set to hit shelves Feb. 7.
Miller claims Donald Trump asked Brig. Gen. Marcus Evans, deputy director for special operations on the Joint Staff, to bring the first lady “up to speed.”
After a discussion about what may happen, Evans told the group that the U.S. “assault force had unleashed their combat dog” into the building with al-Baghdadi, “with our commandos close behind,” Miller wrote. Al-Baghdadi was cornered and detonated a suicide vest, killing himself, his two children, and two of his wives.
Donald Trump asked the team how he should address the American people about the operation, according to Miller.
Melania Trump, to Miller’s surprise, “took over.”
“You should talk about the dog,” she said, Miller wrote. “Everyone loves dogs.”
Donald Trump agreed.
He brought Conan the dog to the White House and gave him an award, saying he did “such a great job in capturing and killing the leader of ISIS.”
We should remember that we were so very lucky to have her as our First Lady and let us pray she will once again hold that title.
