The latest object of President Trump's Twitter wrath is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
Trump accused McCain of "not knowing how to win anymore" on Thursday after McCain publicly criticized Trump's response to a Yemen raid that killed Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.
McCain called the operation a "failure." But White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called the operation "absolutely a success" in Wednesday's press briefing.
Sen. McCain should not be talking about the success or failure of a mission to the media. Only emboldens the enemy! He's been losing so....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
Here's Trump's three-part response.
...long he doesn't know how to win anymore, just look at the mess our country is in - bogged down in conflict all over the place. Our hero..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
..Ryan died on a winning mission ( according to General Mattis), not a "failure." Time for the U.S. to get smart and start winning again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017
The green light the U.S. had for conducting ground missions is now red.
The raid killed multiple civilians, including the 8-year-old daughter of former Al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.
Yemen condemned the raid and requested that the U.S not carry out any raids without its approval, CNN reports. A U.S. official told CNN "nothing has changed" with regard to its strategy in Yemen.
McCain, a Purple Heart recipient, said in a statement that while "many of the objectives of the recent raid in Yemen were met, I would not describe any operation that results in the loss of American life as a success."
Trump has criticized McCain's war record before, saying early in his presidential campaign that he preferred war heroes "who hadn't been captured."
McCain has criticized Trump's policies, including the travel ban and his proposal to bring back waterboarding as a form of torture.
