Over Christmas, our hypocritical anti-Trump media criticized the president for failing to visit U.S. troops overseas. What they didn’t know was that Trump and First Lady Melania were already headed to Iraq to visit our soldiers there.
Here’s What President Trump Told U.S. Troops in Iraq
President Trump and First Lady Melania made a surprise visit to Iraq Wednesday after leaving the White House late on Christmas. There, he spoke for nearly 20 minutes to approximately U.S. troops stationed at Al Asad Air Base and met with military leaders.
According to the White House pool report, the group was made up “of about 100 mostly U.S. special operations troops engaged in combat operations in Iraq and Syria.”
During his remarks, the Commander-in-Chief encouraged U.S. service members to keep up the fight and vowed to continue the fight against ISIS from Iraq.
“I want to come and pay my respects most importantly to the great soldiers, great troopers we have here,” he told reporters.
Our troops were very happy to see the President and First Lady. Watch this video showing the massive reception from the crowd:
