Donald Trump Says It's 'Great' U.S. Caught Osama: I Hope He 'Suffered A Lot'

Most of the partygoers at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute's gala on Monday night were all about Alexander McQueen. But several of them had other things on their minds, including potential presidential candidate Donald Trump. He paused on the red carpet to give his thoughts on the death of Osama bin Laden.

"I think it's so great that he was caught and I hope he really suffered a lot to be honest with you," said Trump. "I suspect he did. He's a bad guy and that's what happens."

Trump said the American people could not be happier with Bin Laden's death.

"They're very happy, they're very proud of our servicemen," he said. "I mean, these were great people who were able to do this so well and so surgically."

Trump said that he thought U.S. representatives would soon be examining issues of whether or not Pakistan had harbored Bin Laden.

His wife, Melania Knauss, a Slovenian model, accompanied Trump at the Met's gala.
