President Donald Trump was asked by the crew on Fox & Friends about the failed raid in Yemen that took the life of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, and the president was quick to deflect blame onto others.
When asked about criticism from Owens’s father about the failed raid, Trump pointed out that planning for the mission actually started under former President Obama.
“This was a mission that was started before I got here,” Trump said. “This was something that was, uh, you know, they wanted to do. They came to see me, they explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected. My generals are the most respected that we’ve had in many decades, I believe. And they lost Ryan.”
Trump went on to say that he could understand why Owens’s father would not want to meet with them since there is “nothing worse” than losing a son. All the same, the president believes that the mission was worth it, as he claims Defense Secretary James Mattis told him it was a very successful operation.

WATCH: Christian parent warns school district that wearing masks is a ‘pagan ritual of satanic worshipers’
Wisconsin's Elmbrook School District is fully reopening for the coming school year -- a decision that was expectedly met with criticism. Nevertheless, the school is requiring students to wear masks while on campus, and a certain Christian parent took umbrage at the rule, saying social distancing and wearing masks are "pagan rituals of satanic worshipers."
"My kids are Christian they are not subject to wearing masks,” the woman, identified as Heidi Anderson, said at an Elmbrook Board of Education meeting on Tuesday.
"Six-foot distance and masks are pagan rituals of satanic worshipers," Anderson said. "Absorb that in. 6 feet. Where does 6 feet come from, people? Why is not 3? Why is it not 5? Why is it not 10? Why is it not 30? Why is it 6?"

A very pro-Trump Catholic priest went ballistic after the first joint public appearance of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Wednesday afternoon, attacking Americans showing support for a Biden-Harris landslide.
"Those tweeting #BidenHarris2020Landslide with a desire for it are seeking a landslide of - bloodshed of #unborn babies - persecution of the church - economic debt - criminals in our neighborhoods - new terrorists in the world - taxes," wrote Father Frank Pavone. "And they don't have the integrity to face it."
‘Trumpster’ berated by store workers for wearing mask over his eyes — he responds by calling them ‘sheep’
A man in Utah this week was caught on camera wearing a face mask over his eyes at a local grocery store, only to get berated by several angry employees who eventually had him removed.
Local news station Fox 13 Now reports that that the man walked into a Smith's grocery store in Cedar City, Utah wearing a mask over his eyes in an act of defiance of the store's face mask policy.
The video shows employees walking up to the man and asking him why he wasn't following signs that said all customers have to wear masks while shopping.
