The parents of slain U.S. aid worker Kayla Mueller spoke at the 2020 Republican National Convention. In a speech on Thursday night, they slammed the Obama administration who they accused of having disregarded their daughter’s situation while she was tortured and killed.

Mueller was a humanitarian worker who was abducted from Syria by ISIS in 2013 and was held in captivity by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi before she was killed in 2015.

“President Obama refused to meet with us until ISIS had already beheaded other Americans,” stated Carl Mueller, Kayla’s father. “To this day, we’ve never heard from Joe Biden.”

Mueller’s father claimed Kayla would still be alive if President Trump was in office during her ordeal. He then praised the military operation that killed al-Baghdadi, which was carried out under President Trump’s administration.

“Instead, the Obama administration hid behind policy so much that we felt hopeless when they kept us from negotiating to save Kayla’s life,” Carl continued.
