Type: Defames\SlandersNov 18 2018 Severity: About: September 11 Attacks (9/11)
Donald Trump personally attacked retired Navy Admiral Bill McRaven, the commander in charge of the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011, for taking so long to kill the 9/11 mastermind. Trump also interrupted Fox News host Chris Wallace to insist that McRaven is a "Hillary Clinton fan" even though the retired Admiral pointedly didn't endorse either candidate in 2016.
Quote | He also wrote off retired Admiral Bill McRaven as a Hillary Clinton hack.
"OK, he’s [Admiral Bill McRaven] a Hillary Clinton backer and an Obama backer...Living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer. But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there. And we give Pakistan $1.3 billion a year and they don’t tell him, they don’t tell him ... for years."
