Rep. Duncan Hunter: “King Abdullah is NOT Obama, he will take action!”

Published: Updated:

A U.S. lawmaker who met with Jordan’s King Abdullah after footage of a Jordanian fighter pilot being burned to death by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants has said that “ISIS is now going to regret this … because King Abdullah is not Barack Obama.”

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr., a Marine Corps veteran of two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, who was in a meeting with the Arab monarch, told Fox News Channel in an interview aired Wednesday, that Abdullah had quoted a Clint Eastwood movie in reference to retaliating to the killing of the fighter pilot.

Hunter was referring to what some believe as the U.S. president’s lack of leadership in combating ISIS.

Meanwhile, a Jordanian government official on Thursday denied social media reports that King Abdullah flew missions against ISIS earlier on Thursday.
