ISIS-Fighting Dog Conan, Honoured at The White House By Trump

President Donald Trump has welcomed Conan Monday, the canine military hero who was wounded in the successful special forces raid that took out ISIS kingpin Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, to the White House.

“It was a flawless attack, al-Baghdadi’s gone, and we gave Conan a medal and a plaque. He’s a very, very special dog,” the president said at the White House about the Belgian Malinois.

“He’s an incredible dog. We’re very honored to have Conan here and to give Conan an award,” he said in the Rose Garden ceremony after meeting with Special Forces troops in the White House.

“He was badly hurt but he recovered very quickly," the president continued, alluding to the dog’s injuries when the ISIS cutthroat blew himself up with a suicide vest.

The commander-in-chief then extolled the canine’s fighting abilities. “This is the ultimate fighter, ultimate everything. Ultimate in terms of sniffing drugs,” Trump said.

Trump said he asked Conan’s handlers “what chance a person [would] have against Conan without the guns, I guess the answer was pretty much none. No chance, it was amazing.”

Trump was accompanied by Vice President Mike Pence and first lady Melania Trump.
