“Very brave men said good bye to their kids to go kill Osama bin Laden. We were given the order by President Obama,” O’Neill tweeted. “It was not a body double. Thank you Mr. President.”
Robert O’Neill, who supports president Trump and has attended a few of his events posted a series of tweets attacking the president and those who believe the claim. Robert O’Neill claims to be the US Navy Seal who fired the shot that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.
On Tuesday, Trump retweeted a tweet from a now suspended Twitter account that stated:
“Hiden Biden and Obama may have had Seal Team 6 killed! EXPLOSIVE: CIA Whistleblower Exposes Biden’s Alleged Role with the Deaths of Seal Team- Claims to have Documented Proof. RETWEET!!!” the tweet read.
Trump’s tweet and the account he retweeted are both gone:
The latest QAnon conspiracy theory claims ‘Bin Laden’s body double was actually killed in the raid and that Biden then ordered a Navy Seal helicopter be shot down in order to stop the “truth” from coming out.’
Trump also retweeted another video claiming, without evidence, that “three former CIA Directors involved in keeping bin Laden alive in Iran, moved him from Iran to Pakistan for Obama’s trophy kill.”
