Shortly after President Donald Trump addressed a Joint Session of Congress for the first time since taking the oath of office, CNN's Van Jones called one particularly moving moment from the speech the real estate mogul's most presidential to date.

"We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens", Trump said, referring to the wife of William "Ryan" Owens, reported the Huffington Post.

The thunderous applause, a standing ovation tribute to him, lasted almost two minutes. "And Ryan is looking down right now and I think he's very happy because he broke a record", Trump ad libbed, apparently suggesting that Owens would be pleased at the length of his standing ovation.

That sacrifice is why we owe our Gold Star families the deepest respect, why they're revered in military ranks, and why - just for a moment - a nation can unite to give honor to whom honor is most certainly due.

Trump quoted Defense Secretary James Mattis' positive assessment of the raid during his speech Tuesday. It marked the first combat death in Trump's presidency.

"This was a mission that started before I got here", Trump said.

I predicted my success at Man Utd, says Ibrahimovic
Herrera told MUTV that Mourinho has " shared that with the group, with the team and with the squad ", to generate a winning mentality throughout.

Lahren argued that liberals still can't accept Trump as president, so they are forced to criticize everything about him, even a touching moment during an fantastic speech.

On Twitter, many were stunned that Trump would pawn off blame to his generals and take no responsibility for the death of Owens.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our elite service members", Gen. Joseph Votel, the commander of U.S. Central Command, said in a statement released after the raids.

Backens reminded Christians that they would never know how God would want to use them when they reach out to others with the love of Christ, CBN News said.

Owens, a 36-year-old married father of three, was the first known USA combat casualty since Trump took office, and his death, as well as the killing of several civilians, raised questions about the effectiveness of the raid. Unnamed US military officials speaking on conditions of anonymity told Reuters that the Yemen raid was an ill-advised decision, saying that intelligence was basically insufficient because ground surveillance was minimal. Throughout the president's remarks, Mrs. Owens glanced to the sky and let her tears fall.
