VIDEO: President Trump Honors Fallen Navy SEAL’s Widow During Congressional Address

Watch: Wife of Navy SEAL Ryan Owens applauded for more than 2 minutes during Trump speech.
President Trump “Ryan died as he lived — a warrior and a hero… Ryan is looking down from heaven …and he’s very happy because I think he just broke a record”

Washington Examiner Reports:
In the most emotional moment during his speech to Congress on Tuesday, President Trump recognized the widow of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, provoking a standing ovation that lasted longer than two minutes.

“Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity,” Trump said as the chamber stood up and applauded Carryn Owens, whose husband was the first American combat death during the Trump administration.

Carryn Owens, who was sitting next to Ivanka Trump and other guests on the balcony of the House chamber, fought back back tears, exhaled, looked above and mouthed “I love you, baby.” Tears streaming down her face as the applause continued, Carryn Owens eventually stood up, clasped her hands in apparent prayer, raised her head again and mouthed “I love you.”

Owens was killed in Yemen on Jan. 29 in a raid Trump has said was “highly successful.”
