Van Jones on Trump Honoring Slain Navy SEAL in Speech: ‘One of the Most Extraordinary Moments’ in Politics

The liberal media, not exactly a neutral source of news these days, was shocked by President Donald Trump’s joint speech to Congress. Although many criticized his remarks, some like Van Jones praised Trump’s handling of the death of a Navy SEAL in a recent raid in Yemen.

Here’s what Van Jones said [1] about Trump’s moment in honoring the widow of Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, Carryn Owens:

“He became President of the United States in that moment, period,” said Jones, after the evening’s most emotional point was replayed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper [2].
“That was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics,” Jones added.
