THE navy SEAL who took out Osama bin Laden has unloaded on Donald Trump, whose latest idea for the American military has sparked a fevered backlash.
…calling it a third world idea.
President Trump this week asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the US armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength.
The idea has received a chilly reception from many, including the former Navy SEAL who killed 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.
“A military parade is third world bulls**t,” Robert O’Neill wrote on Twitter.
“We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation.”
Mr O’Neill was a member of the elite SEAL Team Six when he killed bin Laden on May 2, 2011 at the compound where he was hiding out in Pakistan.
White House and military officials confirmed preliminary planning was already under way, but said a date had not yet been decided.
The Pentagon also said it isn’t certain that President Trump’s plans for a military parade to salute the country’s armed forces would wind its way through the streets of Washington DC.
