Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran Johnny "Joey" Jones praised President Trump for dropping the "mother of all bombs" on ISIS, saying the last administration failed to take such appropriate action.

Jones, who lost both his legs in an IED explosion, said he might still have his legs if the Obama administration wasn't concerned with public relations backlashes.

He said he felt "expendable" when he lost his legs while clearing an empty town because the White House did not want to be seen in the press as dropping bombs on villages.

Jones said Trump instead gave his generals the tools to make the decision they thought was best for their troops.

He said the "mother of all bombs" option effectively let the generals know they could control their own situations.

Responding to the death of a Green Beret in Afghanistan, Jones said the bomb also "sent a message to the cowards who killed him."
