“The View” co-host Meghan McCain is honoring the life of U.S. humanitarian worker Kayla Mueller who was killed by ISIS, following the death of the terrorist group’s leader.
“He was a sick and depraved man and now he’s gone,” Trump said.
During Monday’s segment of “The View,” McCain took a moment to honor the U.S. humanitarian worker, whose name was used as the name for the U.S. raid. ISIS took Mueller captive in 2013 in Syria, and her death was confirmed in 2015.
“Today, we honor her. We honor her family,” McCain said, adding, “This guy, Baghdadi, was the worst of the worst of the worst … kind of scum on planet Earth.”
McCain continued to declare that Americans “should take these wins” after killing the leader of ISIS “because it’s a win for America and it’s a win for democracy and it’s a win for freedom.”
“I really think, at this moment, all of our hearts should be with the Mueller family today,” McCain said.

Mueller’s mother, Marsha, said on Sunday following the death of the ISIS leader, “I just want to say how grateful we are to this administration, to the military, and to the special forces that went in. My hope is that this will help us get answers to what really happened to Kayla and get her home.”
As IJR reported, Trump made known on Monday that he is considering releasing “certain parts” of video footage of the U.S. raid that ended in the death of the ISIS leader.
