Trump digs in on conspiracy theory over bin Laden raid | The Hill

Trump recently retweeted an account linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory that said Bin Laden’s death could have been faked and the body was not really his. Military observers state that the president’s actions may not help gain support especially this close to election dates. Trump said on Thursday night during his town hall appearance “that was an opinion of somebody, and that was a retweet. I’ll put it out there. People can decide for themselves.” Robert O’Neill, a former Navy SEAL who publicly stated he killed Bin Laden during the raid in 2011, also said in a tweet “we were given the order by President Obama. It was not a body double. Thank you, Mr. President.”
