Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Calls Trump's Parade Plan 'Third World Bulls**t'

"Stop this conversation."

The former Navy SEAL who killed terrorist Osama bin Laden in a 2011 raid blasted President Donald Trump’s plans to hold a military parade

Robert O’Neill wrote Thursday on Twitter:  

He later added a tweet referring to the 2003 invasion of Iraq: 

O’Neill joins a chorus of military veterans who say the parade would be a bad idea. 

“This parade would not only waste millions of taxpayer dollars, it would also cost our military precious time and resources,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a retired Army lieutenant colonel, said in a statement.

Trump reportedly wanted a parade after seeing one in France

However, his plans are being compared to the military displays routinely seen in places such as North Korea and Russia
