    “The U.S. Navy SEAL who killed Usama bin Laden is not a fan of President Trump’s call for a military parade in Washington, and he made his opinion clear on the commander-in-chief’s favorite social media forum.” (FOX ‘News’ 2/8/18) http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/09/navy-seal-who-killed-bin-laden-calls-trumps-military-parade-third-world-bulls.html

    President Donald Trump bemoaned a decision not to investigate Hillary Clinton after the 2016 presidential election, decrying a “rigged system” that still doesn’t have the “right people” in place to fix it, during a freewheeling speech to Republican donors in Florida on Saturday.
    In the closed-door remarks, a recording of which was obtained by CNN, Trump also praised China’s President Xi Jinping for recently consolidating power and extending his potential tenure, musing he wouldn’t mind making such a maneuver himself.
    “He’s now president for life. President for life. No, he’s great,” Trump said. “And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot some day.”
