Saddam Hussein’s daughter has only praise for Donald Trump, saying that he has “political sensibility.” The brutal dictator of Iraq ruled by terror and cast fear into the hearts of the Iraqis. But in 2003, George W. Bush’s military forced him to flee and finally found him hiding in a dark, dirty spider hole in the ground.
In an exclusive CNN interview, Hussein’s eldest daughter Raghad Saddam Hussein naturally admires her father saying:
‘I don’t think he would have gone in a death smaller than this. It was a death that brought pride to me, my children, my sisters and their children, to all those who love him and have a place for him in their heart.’
She also admires President-elect Donald Trump:
‘This man has just arrived to the leadership … But from what is apparent, this man has a high level of political sensibility, that is vastly different than the one who preceded him.
Raghad blames this country for the destruction of her country, but she has high hopes Trump will be a different kind of man from the other presidents.
‘He exposed the mistakes of the others, specifically in terms of Iraq, which means he is very aware of the mistakes made in Iraq and what happened to my father.’
Trump said that her father was a “bad guy,” but the almost-president definitely admired Hussein and his efficient killing of “terrorists.” Raghad said:
‘Yes, there was brutality, sometimes a lot of it and I can’t support brutality. But Iraq is a country that is difficult to rule and it’s only now that people are realizing it.’
For her, Hussein was “a hero, courageous, nationalistic, a symbol to millions of people.”
Hussein married Raghad to a high-ranking military official, and he married another daughter to a senior government official. But his sons-in-law defected to Jordan. When the dictator convinced them to return, he ordered the men to divorce the two daughters. Then Hussein’s men murdered the two.
Needless to say, after her husband’s death, Raghad’s relationship with her father suffered, lost its “luster.”
‘What is happening is just a momentary state, a state of invasion and confusion. But this is not the fate of Iraq.
‘The war is not infinite. Of course, there is hope.’
Raghad grew up with a brutal dictator. She knows what he was and still admired her father. Now she explains how much she admires Donald Trump.
