Donald Trump Responds to Criticism Over Navy SEAL's Death
President Trump says the mission that killed Navy SEAL William "Ryan" Owens in Yemen "started before I got here." In an interview with Fox & Friends, Trump appeared to blame generals for Owens' death. He said it was a mission the generals had been looking at doing for a long time and "they lost Ryan."
This comes on the heels of an article from the Miami Herald, in which Owens' dad said he wanted an investigation into the raid that killed his son. He told the Herald he doesn't understand why there had to be a mission six days into Trump's term when for the previous two years, there were no boots on the ground -- just missiles and drones.
