President Trump welcomes 'Conan,' heroic military dog who assisted in al-Baghdadi raid, to White House
WASHINGTON - President Trump welcomed, "Conan," the heroic military dog who helped take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the White House on Monday.
Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the first lady greeted the press in the Rose Garden.
Trump said "Conan" received a medal and a plaque.
Conan was hurt during the mission after being exposed to live electrical wires while pursuing Baghdadi through a tunnel underneath a compound in northwestern Syria, Gen. Frank McKenzie, who leads U.S. Central Command, said.
