The truth about Donald Trump's Bin Laden 'prediction'

The feud began after the president was asked about retired Navy Admiral William McRaven previous year criticizing the president's attack on the media.

Mr Trump said on Sunday that Pakistan did not "do a damn thing for us" and stood by his decision to cut more than $1 billion a year of military aid to the country.

Ms Mazari said Mr Trump's outburst was a lesson to former governments who had tried to appease Washington.

McRaven told CNN he is a fan both of George W Bush and Barack Obama, having served under them.

This isn't the first time O'Neill has been critical of the president.

That admiration did not, however, extend to Trump. "That's ENDING!" Trump posted. He added, "I think you will see that happen".

PM Khan fired back at Trump, saying the US president's "false assertions add insult to injury Pakistan has suffered in the US War on Terror".

Retired Adm. Mike Mullen, a former Joint Chiefs chairman, told NPR, for example, he anxious that comments like those by McRaven wind up having the effect of making the military seem political even if McRaven doesn't wish that. McRaven said he did not endorse anyone in 2016.

Admiral McRaven hit back at at Mr Trump in a statement.

Over the past several days, Trump lashed out at Pakistan on his Twitter account and in a Fox News interview, saying Pakistan was not doing enough to support the U.S. fight against the Taliban and accusing it of secretly protecting terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Maher's essay, which was published on his blog Saturday, questioned the appeal of comic books in adult culture. Users who type "Excelsior!' into the search bar get returns for 'Titles In: Stan Lee's Universe".

He also alleged it was well known in Pakistan that bin Laden was hiding in the country before United States special forces killed him in a 2011 raid. The president followed up on that criticism on Monday.

The comments also underscored Trump's complicated relationship with the USA military and spy services: In this case, the president appeared to not understand that intelligence agencies were responsible for finding bin Laden.

He continued: "President Clinton famously missed his shot".

"And we give Pakistan $1.3 billion a year.(bin Laden) lived in Pakistan, we're supporting Pakistan, we're giving them $1.3 billion a year - which we don't give them anymore, by the way".

"The mission to get bin Laden was bipartisan, ' Navy SEAL O'Neill tweeted Monday". The Navy special operators killed him and flew him to a ship, from which his body was dumped in the ocean.

Trump's book did not call for further USA action against bin Laden or al-Qaida to follow up on attacks Clinton ordered in 1998 in Afghanistan and Sudan after al-Qaida bombed the us embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He had also accused Islamabad of helping to hide Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.

The minister said in a series of tweets said that whether China or Iran, US policies of "containment and isolation" do not coincide with Pakistan's strategic interests. "I like people who weren't captured".

In the campaign, Trump boasted even more expansively about being a soothsayer.

"Trump's tirade against Pakistan and his claim that that Pakistan does not do "a damn thing" for the U.S. should be a lesson for those Pakistan leaders who kept appeasing the USA especially after 9/11!" Trump was mocked earlier this month for failing to attend a Belleau Wood commemoration during his visit to France because it was raining. He blamed the Secret Service.

Trump's denial of the CIA's conclusions about the crown prince are, by implication, "a criticism of the intelligence analysis on the subject". But he hinted a trip to a war zone could be coming in the future.
