Saying President-elect Donald Trump has a “high level of political sensibility,” the daughter of the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein spoke favorably of Trump’ leadership in comparison to his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
“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 Saddam Hussein told CNN in an exclusive interview.
“[Trump] 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,” she said.
Raghad said she has not watched footage of her father’s execution and denied reports that she supports the Islamic State.
“Of course I don’t have any relations to this group and other extremist groups,” she told CNN.
“Moreover, the family’s ideology has no similarities to that of extremist groups,” Raghad said. “As a proof to this, these groups only became powerful in Iraq after we left the country and our rule ended.”
