Father of fallen SEAL: ‘Don’t trust Donald Trump with your kid’s life’

“Just five days into his presidency, Trump ordered Ryan’s SEAL team into Yemen, not in the situation room with all the intelligence assembled, but sitting across a dinner table from Steve Bannon,” Owens tells viewers as the narrator of the ad. “There was no vital interest at play, just Donald Trump playing big man going to war.” He concludes, “If you hear one thing, let it be this: Don’t trust Donald Trump with your kid’s life — or your own.”

In fact, U.S. military officials told Reuters that Trump approved the raid — the first operation he approved as president — “without sufficient intelligence, ground support or adequate backup preparations.” He green-lit the mission over dinner at the White House residence, and while the raid was underway, Trump reportedly did not go to the Situation Room and did not monitor the developments in real time.
