Trump's comments, in an interview broadcast over the weekend, reignited a war of words that started in 2017 when McRaven, a four-star officer, called the president's description of the news media as the "enemy of the people" the "greatest threat" to American democracy he had ever seen.
On Monday, Trump doubled down on his comments, tweeting: "Of course we should have captured Osama Bin Laden long before we did".
As for Trump's claim that he predicted bin Laden's involvement before 9/11, that statement is partly true at best.
"It's inconceivable that bin Laden did not have a support system in the country that allowed him to remain there for an extended period of time", John Brennan, President Barack Obama's top counterterrorism adviser at the time, said at a news conference after the 2011 raid that killed the al-Qaida leader.
When told his answers differ with the views of the USA president, Colonel Manning added, "I do not have any announcement on any change to the military to military relationship we have with Pakistan".
Leon Panetta, who ran the CIA when intelligence experts located bin Laden, bristled at Trump's suggestion that the US government had dragged its feet.
In an interview with "Fox News Sunday," Trump belittled Adm. William McRaven, a retired Navy SEAL who oversaw the 2011 operation that took out bin Laden, for not killing the terrorist sooner. "United States "aid" was a minuscule $20bn", Khan posted on Twitter.
PM Khan fired back at Trump, saying the US president's "false assertions add insult to injury Pakistan has suffered in the US War on Terror". "As the holidays approach, we are especially grateful for our troops' sacrifice", Ryan's spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said in a statement.
"Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation", McRaven wrote.
Following the recent tirade of the United States (US) President Donald Trump against Pakistan, the Pentagon elucidated that no change has taken place in the Pak-US military relations. Despite the Admiral commanding missions that captured both Sadam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, Trump decided he wasn't a good man because he questioned Trump's war against the institution of the free press.
Trump's latest criticism has further deteriorated the US-Pak relationship.
He continued: "President Clinton famously missed his shot".
Pakistan denies having any knowledge of bin Laden's whereabouts prior to the raid.
Trump also drew criticism for his decision not to visit Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day last week, following his trip to Europe. "You constantly remind us how substantively shallow & dishonest you are on so many fronts, which is why we are in such unsafe times", he wrote on Twitter, quoting Trump's tweet about bin Laden.
