United States Marine and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer appeared on Fox and Friends Saturday offering strong support for the change in leadership under the Trump administration.
When remarking on the recent bombing of an ISIS compound in the mountains of Afghanistan, Meyer said, “It’s a direct reflection of leadership, right? I thing it finally shows that we have an administration that’s letting the military do its job.”
While there are supporters and critics of the action, Meyer asserts that “The U.S. military is America’s team. Why can we not celebrate a win on behalf of them? Why can we not celebrate all of it? I mean, you think it doesn’t make us as service members feel good and empower us to want to go out and do better things?”
When asked, “What does this do to the mindset of these terrorists, and what does it do to the mindset of our military who are out there fighting against them?”
Meyer noted that when it came to the mindset of the terrorists, “There’s only one solution to the problem and that’s more of this happening.”
As for the mindset of the military, Meyer said, “A year ago we had a commander in chief that would let you get captured by Iran and not do any repercussions—what do you think the mindset is there? Versus now, we’ve got a commander in chief that’s saying, ‘Hey, run your military like you need to and do whatever it takes to get rid of the enemy.’
“Now we’ve got somebody coming in and instead of worrying about politics and the court of public opinion, they’re saying, ‘Do whatever needs to be done in order to be successful.’”
