Is al-Baghdadi really dead?

On May 2nd, 2011, Western and international media reported that Osama bin Laden, the founder of al-Qaeda, was killed by US forces. President Barack Obama restored his popularity after he was close to losing the elections in his second round and the killing of the founder of Al-Qaeda was a  kiss of life  to him.

In 2019, Democrats rallied against US President Donald Trump and despite his unprecedented economic reforms to the United States, the Democrats succeeded in confusing him by threatening to remove him after his calls wtih the Ukrainian President and his request to investigate the son of Joe Biden, a possible presidential candidate for 2020 against Trump. Soon, Western newspapers announced in August 2019 that Osama bin Laden s son Hamza had been killed in an air strike, which is similar to what Obama did before his second round election by announcing the killing of bin Laden. 
 
Although Hamza was the expected successor to his father in the leadership of al-Qaeda, the news of his death did not have an influential echo in the American street, but the shouting of Democrats was more noisy and Trump s position became weaker, which confirms he won t succeed in the second round.
 
On October 27, 2019, US President Donald Trump came out to confirm the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by US forces along with three of his sons. This is not the first time we hear the news of ISIS leader s death, but it has widely spread, and the question now is: will the death of the leader of the terrorist organization ISIS insures the success of Donald Trump in his second round of the presidency of the United States of America like it did with Obama?
 
As for those who celebrated the death of al-Baghdadi, I say that terrorism is a cancerous ideology that is entrenched and is not limited to a leader of a terrorist group. As a matter of fact, it is a mere commercial election propaganda to influence the vote of the Americans.
