Linkedin Share

The day after Christmas in 2018, President Trump and First Lady Melania visited troops in Iraq. It was obviously kept secret as trips of that magnitude generally are. On Thanksgiving day 2019, POTUS went to Afghanistan. Always a good thing to lift troop morale!

Here’s what’s up, via Daily Wire:

According to The Washington Post, Trump departed on Air Force One from Florida on Wednesday, speaking to troops assembled in an airplane hangar on Thursday with a happy Thanksgiving message.

[…]

“We are winning like we have not won in a long time, we were respected like we have not been respected in a long time,” Trump told the troops, reports the Post. “Our citizens know that we are standing guard, crushing our enemies … I am here today to just really say, happy Thanksgiving, but also thank you very much.”

“As President, I truly have no higher honor than to serve as Commander-in-Chief of the United States Military—the greatest force for peace and justice in the history of the world!”
@POTUS @realDonaldTrump

While visiting troops in Iraq last year, the left decided to mock Melania over her choice of boots

For the visit, which was unscheduled, Melania broke first lady precedent by traveling to an active combat zone. To take selfies with soldiers and speak military members, FLOTUS wore a suede mustard belted blouse with dark green pants.
