Embattled Navy SEAL Finally Gets Chance to Thank Trump

Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher met with President Trump at his 26-room, 62,500-square-foot resort in Palm Beach, Florida, this weekend.

“Finally got to thank the President and his amazing wife by giving them a little gift from Eddie’s deployment to Mosul,” a post on Gallagher’s shared Instagram account with his wife reads. The location of the post was tagged as Mar-a-Lago.

Pictures showed Gallagher, 40, and his wife, Andrea, sharing laughs with the president and Melania Trump. One photo showed the president with a gift in hand, although the contents of the present remain unclear.

Trump has been a vocal advocate of the Navy SEAL, who was acquitted in the murder trial of a 17-year-old Islamic State terrorist. Former Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer oversaw a push to review Gallagher’s Trident and was fired by Defense Secretary Mark Esper after learning that Spencer attempted to cut a secret deal with Trump regarding Gallagher.
