Pres. Trump tweets fake photo showing him placing a medal on military K9

Posted: Updated:

(WSIL) -- President Trump  on Wednesday tweeted a fake picture which showed him putting a medal around the neck of the dog that was credited with tracking down the head of the Islamic State. 

The president shared the photo that was first tweeted by The Daily Wire Tuesday.

President Trump first tweeted an official photo of the dog after 3 p.m. Monday, October 28, after it had been declassified. The K-9 fighter is a Belgian Malinois, but the dog's name is still classified.

Trump tweeted the edited image on Wednesday, a few hours before he was scheduled to place the Medal of Honor around the neck of a Green Beret for his heroic actions while serving in Afghanistan's Shok Valley in 2008.

According to the White House, Army Master Sgt. Matthew Williams, of Boerne, Texas, was critical in ensuring the evacuation of his wounded teammates from a mountain as the unit took fire from insurgents.
