Trump Attacks Admiral McRaven, Who Led Osama bin Laden Raid

HeadlineNov 19, 2018

President Trump is coming under fire after he attacked former Navy SEAL William McRaven, who oversaw the U.S. operation that killed Osama bin Laden, calling him a “Hillary Clinton fan” and an “Obama backer” during an interview with Fox News Sunday. In addition, Trump wondered why it took so long for the U.S. to find bin Laden, telling host Chris Wallace, “Wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that?” Admiral McRaven has condemned Trump’s attacks on the media, saying last year that they present “the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime.”
