President Trump left the White House this afternoon to head to Dover Air Force Base, where he’ll welcome home slain Chief Special Warfare Operator, William “Ryan” Owens. The President is also expected to join Owens’ family for a private ceremony.
Owens, a 36-year-old from Peoria, Illinois, was the first known U.S. combat casualty of Trump’s administration. Three other Americans were wounded in the operation, which was planned by former President Barack Obama’s administration but approved by Trump.
According to WSLS 10, “The trip was not on Trump’s public schedule. A small group of journalists traveled with Trump on the condition that the visit was not reported in advance.”
