President Trump weighed in on a number of hot-button topics in a string of tweets Saturday morning, the day after naming a new White House communications director and accepting the resignation of press secretary Sean Spicer.

The president took aim at some familiar targets: the “Amazon Washington Post,” leaks, Hillary Clinton, “Special Council” Robert Mueller and others.

But one missive in particular left observers scratching their heads. In a cryptic tweet, Mr. Trump accused “the Failing New York Times” of foiling an attempt to kill Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
