Trump hails military after it drops "Mother of All Bombs" on Afghanistan

By Adam Routh

President Trump hailed the U.S. military after it dropped the "mother of all bombs," America's largest non-nuclear weapon, in Afghanistan on Thursday.

But just like last week's air strikes in Syria, Democrats are expressing outrage that Congress wasn't consulted.

At 7 p.m. local time, the U.S. military dropped the GBU-43, marking the first time the 22,000 pound bomb had ever been used in combat.

Watch the interview at ABC 7.
