â€‹President Trump said Wednesday that he would order the Navy to rescind medals given to military lawyers who prosecuted a â€‹former â€‹Navy SEAL the president supported during his court martial on murder charges.
â€œThe Prosecutors who lost the case against SEAL Eddie Gallagher (who I released from solitary confinement so he could fight his case properly), were ridiculously given a Navy Achievement Medal,â€ Trump wrote on Twitter.
â€œI have directed the Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer & Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson to immediately withdraw and rescind the awardsâ€‹,â€ Trump continued.
â€‹â€I am very happy for Eddie Gallagher and his family!â€‹â€
The four attorneys who prosecuted Gallagher were given Navy Achievement Medals last month, the Navy Times reported.
Makes you want to vote for Trump twice.
