Limbaugh says the President "has done something extremely effective," while Trump it was "a job well done."

Both Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump have set aside their differences on President Barack Obama to congratulate him on the death of Osama bin Laden.

"We need to open the program today by congratulating President Obama," Limbaugh said on his Monday show. "President Obama has done something extremely effective, and when he does, this needs to be pointed out."

He praised President Obama for sending a Special Forces team to kill the terrorist.

"Our military wanted to go in there and just scorch the earth...but President Obama single-handedly understood what was at stake here,” said Limbaugh. “He alone understood the need to get DNA to prove the was President Obama single-handedly and alone who came up with the strategy that brought about the effective assassination of Osama bin Laden," he said, adding, "thank God for President Obama."

In a statement Trump also expressed his gratitude.

“I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the Armed Forces for a job well done,” he said. “I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the American flag in celebration of this great victory. We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those currently fighting for our freedom. God Bless America!”
