Conan is the nickname of a military dog which took part in and was injured during the US military operation in north Syria against the leader and founder of Daesh* Abu al - Baghdadi that resulted in his death on 26 October.

Earlier, Trump made a rare Sunday address from the White House informing the world that al - Baghdadi was eliminated in northwest But the Russian Defense Ministry insisted that “there were legitimate questions and doubts about the very fact [of the US operation] and, especially, its success.”

The dog that assisted in the mission that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi will soon visit the White House, President Trump said Wednesday.

"He's coming to the White House very soon," Trump said at a rally in Monroe, La.

"I said, 'bring him now,' they said, 'He's on a mission.' I said, 'You gotta be kidding. Come on, give him couple of days rest, please,'" Trump added.

The dog, Conan, was injured in the U.S. mission that resulted in the ISIS leader's death last month.

"You know who the real hero is, forget about Trump, the dog was the great hero, Conan," Trump said Wednesday.

Trump had hinted that Conan would visit the White House last week when he quote-tweeted a photoshopped image he shared earlier in the day of him giving the dog the Medal of honor.

He also used the dog's name in the tweet. The name had previously been classified.

Trump was in Louisiana to garner support for Republican Eddie Rispone, who is challenging Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards in the state's runoff gubernatorial election on Nov. 16
