An image of US President Donald Trump honouring the dog that was involved in the operation of killing ISIS Chief Al-Bagdadi is doing the rounds on social media. Let’s analyze the authenticity of that image.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Image of Trump honouring the dog that was involved in the operation of killing ISIS chief Al-Bagdadi.

Fact: The image is a photoshopped one. The original image is that of President Donald Trump awarding ‘Medal of Honor’ to James McCloughan of the US Army. So, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On October 28, 2019, Donald Trump tweeted the image of the dog that was involved in the operation of killing ISIS chief Al-Bagdadi in Syria.

Later, on 30 October 30 2019, Trump made another tweet with the image of him honouring the dog with a medal and texted ‘American Hero’. 

But, when that image was subjected to reverse image technique, the search result of ‘CNN’ with a similar image but showing Trump honouring a person was obtained. From the article, it was found that the image is related to Trump awarding ‘Medal of Honor’ to James McCloughan of the US Army. When the two images were observed carefully, it can be understood that the image of Trump honouring the dog is a photoshopped image of Trump awarding ‘Medal of Honor’ to James McCloughan.

Later on, in another tweet, Trump also called the image of him honouring the dog as a ‘recreation’ of the original image.

To conclude, the image of Trump honouring the dog that involved in the operation of killing ISIS chief Al-Bagdadi is a photoshopped one.
