Ex-SEAL who shot at Osama criticises Trump's military paradeFebruary 09, 2018 22:07
The former US Navy SEAL who claims he fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden is blasting President Donald Trump's desire for a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.
"A military parade is third world b-------. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation," Robert O'Neill tweeted.
O'Neill was part of the military operation ordered by US President Barack Obama that killed the Al Qaeda leader in 2011. He also has been a guest host on a favourite morning show of Trump's, "Fox & Friends," and dined with the President at the White House last year.
Reports surfaced that Trump asked the Pentagon for a parade that would rival France's Bastille Day celebration that he attended last year. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday that the Pentagon is preparing options for a possible military parade to send to the White House for a decision.
