President Donald Trump over the weekend criticized the Navy SEALs for failing to kill terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden “a lot sooner.”
Speaking to Fox News host Chris Wallace in a interview that aired on Sunday, Trump lashed out at retired Navy Admiral William H. McRaven as a “Hillary Clinton fan” because he has called the president “the greatest threat to democracy” in his lifetime.
“He’s a Hillary Clinton backer!” Trump snapped at Wallace.
“He was a Navy SEAL,” Wallace observed.
“It would be nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner,” Trump complained. “Wouldn’t it have been nice?”
Bin Laden was killed in 2011 during President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House.
