Trump Rebuts Criticism of Yemen Raid in Address to Congress

Carryn Owens, the widow of William "Ryan" Owens, who died in a U.S. Special Ops raid in Yemen last month, was brought to tears by a two-minute standing ovation during Trump's speech.

Trump was asked about Owens' father, who has said he does not want to talk to Trump and is demanding an investigation in to the raid.

Carryn Owens, seated next to First Daughter Ivanka Trump as one of the President's guests for the evening, softly smiled and mouthed, "Thank you", as the room gave a standing ovation. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. "And we will never forget Ryan".

The " function area" is expected to be contextual just like the Touch Bar on the new MacBooks. But not everyone is convinced that Apple will make the switch.

"This was something that was, you know, just - they wanted to do", Trump was quoted as saying. He made the call, although to hear him tell it, they did.

"According to [Defense Secretary] General [James] Mattis, it was a very successful mission", Trump said during a segment of Fox and Friends.

The Pentagon and White House have both maintained that plenty of usable intelligence was produced by the January 29 raid, which the Defense Department classified as a "site exploitation mission", or an information-gathering effort. I've seen that face as they've stood beside his casket, as they were handed a carefully-folded flag, and as they watched as a son and brother's coffin was lowered into the ground.

The success of the raid has been publicly debated, and the White House has continued to defend the operation.
