  • Relatives of people killed in the raid gather in one of the decimated houses

This morning, the president joined the crack journalistic crew at Fox & Friends, his favorite show which is doing very well, much better than CNN, to tackle a range of issues.

Trump said earlier in the interview that Defense Secretary James Mattis told him it was very successful.

Thye decision to approve the mission was not made from the Situation Room or even from the Oval Office, but over a dinner that included Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon, Defense Secretary Mattis and Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., Vice President Mike Pence, and the now-former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.

"My generals are the most respected we've had in many decades I believe".

"I think President Obama's behind it, because his people are certainly behind it", Trump said. "And they lost Ryan".

Although the White House has said the specific plan for the raid had been pushed from Obama to Trump because of the mission's specific timing - namely, a night with no moon - Obama administration officials have debated this account.

GOP congressman says no room for compromise in repealing Obamacare
At an appearance at CPAC on Friday, Trump called Obamacare "a failed health-care law that threatens our medical system". Jay Inslee, speaking to reporters at a news conference before boarding a flight to Washington , D.C.

It's been described as a mission in which "almost everything went wrong", a dynamic made more complicated by USA military officials suggesting to Reuters that Trump approved the mission "without sufficient intelligence, ground support or adequate backup preparations".

The elder Owens told the Miami Herald over the weekend that he had refused to meet with Trump during the ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in DE when his son's remains were returned. Directly addressing Spicer's remarks, Owen demanded a formal inquiry: "Don't hide behind my son's death to prevent an investigation".

On Feb. 8, White House spokesman Sean Spicer warned that anyone "who undermines the success of that raid owes an apology and [does] a disservice to the life of Chief Owens". Although the Pentagon initially denied reports of dead civilians, officials acknowledged in the days following the raid that some had been killed and that they had begun a formal investigation. "I told them I don't want to meet the president".

As I noted at the time, it was an extraordinary standard for the White House to say military operations that involved death couldn't be questioned. "They got tremendous amounts of information", he said. I would feel - I would feel what's worse?

Donald Trump and daughter Ivanka Trump depart the White House on February 1 to pay tribute to slain Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.
