President Trump had a special dinner guest Tuesday night - the former Navy SEAL who killed Osama sin Laden.

Rob O'Neil posted a picture on social media Wednesday morning, showing him on the White House South Lawn at night with his new wife, Jessica.

'Nice - Dinner - @ - Jessical_oneill - RealDonaldTrump

'Nice dinner with @jessical_oneill at 1600. @realDonaldTrump is a great host,' O'Neill wrote.

O'Neill was part of SEAL Team Six, which stormed Osama bin Laden's secret Pakistan compound on May 2011. He fired the fatal shots that killed the Al Qaeda leader.

Part - Mission - Crew - Mearsk - Alabama

He also took part in the headline-making mission to rescue the crew of the Mearsk Alabama, after they were taken hostage by Somali pirates in 2009. The incident was profiled in the Tom Hanks film Captain Phillips.

O'Neil retired from the military in 2012, and two years later, identified himself as the SEAL who killed Bin Laden in an interview with Fox News. He now works for the network as a contributor.

O'Neill - Supporter - Trump - Race - President

A conservative, O'Neill was a supporter of Trump during the presidential race - but he has also spoken highly of former President Obama, a Democrat.

'He made the right call with Captain Phillips and he made the right call with bin Laden. The two times I’ve been directly associated with a decision that he made, he made the right call,' O'Neill said of Obama in a 2015 interview with The Sunday Times.

Summer - O'Neil - Jessica - Halpin - Wedding

This past summer, O'Neil, 41, married 27-year-old Jessica Halpin in a lavish wedding on Cape Cod attended by the likes of Kid Rock, a close friend of the former SEAL. He was married once previously, and had kids, but divorced after returning to civilian life.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail TV, the couple told the story of how they met and fell in love.
