President Donald Trump lavishly praised the U.S. military Thursday for conducting a "very, very successful mission" in dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in Afghanistan.

"Everybody knows exactly what happened, and what I do is I authorize my military," he said after a White House meeting, CNBC reported.

"We have the greatest military in the world, and they've done their job as usual. So, we have given them total authorization."

He said his confidence in the military is "frankly why they've been so successful lately."

"If you look at what's happened over the last eight weeks and compare that to really what's happened over the last eight years, you'll see there's a tremendous difference," he said.

The president dismissed the idea the GBU-43 bomb attack was meant to influence North Korea.

"I don't know if this sends a message, it doesn't make any difference if it does or not," he said, The Daily Caller reported.

"North Korea is a problem, but the problem will be taken care of."

Thursday's bomb comes in the wake of last week's cruise missile strike on a Syria-government air base, which Trump authorized in response to what U.S. intelligence officials said was a chemical attack carried out by the Syrian regime.
