In a surprise Christmas visit to our troops in Iraq, President Donald Trump told our soldiers that the U.S.A. is “no longer the suckers” due to his military policies and their fighting spirit.

Trump and First Lady Melania hopped a military flight to visit the troops even as the press pool wondered just where the president was over the last few days. Turns out Trump slipped the press and winged his way to Iraq when they weren’t looking.

According to the Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq on Wednesday — their first visit to a war zone since the sitting president took office nearly two years ago.

They left from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland shortly after midnight with a small group of journalists and aides in tow. Trump was in the country for roughly three hours before the White House confirmed his whereabouts.

The president delivered a speech to the rank and file at Al Asad Airbase, took selfies with the troops and met with military leaders in Iraq.

“I want to come and pay my respects most importantly to the great soldiers,” he said of the visit. “Great troopers we have here.”

This visit comes on the tail of Trump’s announcement that he intends to begin pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria, a move that surprised many, including his own supporters.

“We’ve knocked them out. We’ve knocked them silly,” Trump said of ISIS on Wednesday.

“We’re no longer the suckers, folks,” the president said of the decision to leave Syria. “We’re respected again as a nation.”

The president also noted that he has been telling his generals to wrap it up for months.

“They said again, recently, can we have more time? I said, ‘Nope. You can’t have any more time. You’ve had enough time. We’ve knocked them out. We’ve knocked them silly,'” he said of ISIS’ operations in Syria. “I will tell you that I’ve had some very good talks with President Erdogan who wants to knock them out also and he’ll do it. And others will do it to. Because we are in their region. They should be sharing the burden of costs and they’re not.”

Trump and Melania mixed with the troops taking selfies, shaking hands, and chatting amiably.

BOMBSHELL: Shocking New Report Shows Trump Is Making America LESS Racist (Details)

And BOOOOOOOMMM goes the dynamite!

Do you like apples? A new report shows that since President Trump has been in office, America is a less racist country than most liberals want the politically uninformed to believe. How do you like them apples? From Spectator: […] Americans, claim Hopkins and Washington, have actually become less inclined to express racist opinions since Donald Trump was elected. Anti-black prejudice, they found, declined by a statistically-insignificant degree between 2012 and 2016, when Trump was elected. But then after 2016 it took a sharp dive that was statistically significant. Moreover, contrary to their expectations, the fall was as evident among Republican voters as it was among Democrats. There was also a general fall in anti-Hispanic prejudice, too, although this was more evident among Democrat voters. It is a similar story to that in Britain, where the attempt to link Brexit with rising xenophobia has been somewhat debunked. A murder of a Polish man in the town of Harlow in August 2016 was widely attributed to Brexit – but eventually declared by police not to have been a hate crime at all. Similarly, a smashed window in a Spanish restaurant in South London on the night of the Brexit vote was initially widely reported to be an expression of euphoria on the part of xenophobes – but was later revealed to be an attempted burglary. According to freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib, all Congressional Democrats are racist. No joke. She actually said that, revealing what conservatives have known to be true for decades. Did Tlaib mean to say it, though? IT SURE LOOKS THAT WAY. Here’s how it all started… A woman sent a tweet arguing that Democrats are not doing enough to protect embattled Dem Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN)… The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic…

BUSTED! Joe Biden Vowed to Ban Sanctuary Cities During Second Run for POTUS In 2007

Hey, Joe – DO YOU REMEMBER THIS!?

1988. 2008. And now, 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden is attempting to become president of the United States for the third time. Back in 2007 at a New Hampshire primary debate, handsy Joe was asked about “sanctuary cities.” He said he wouldn’t allow them. Biden’s exchange with New England Cable News’s Alison King went as follows: KING: I’d like to hear from Senator Biden, would you allow these cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added] BIDEN: The reason that cities ignore the federal law is the fact that there is no funding at the federal level to provide for the kind of enforcement at the federal level you need … Part of the problem is you have to have a federal government that can enforce laws. This administration’s been fundamentally derelict in not funding any of the requirements that are needed even to enforce the existing law… [Emphasis added] … KING: So Senator Biden, yes or no, would you allow those cities to ignore the federal law? [Emphasis added] BIDEN: No. [Emphasis added] With everything Joe has said over the years, how in the world is this man the Democrat frontrunner? It’s almost baffling. Almost. The former VP can’t seem to escape his gaffe-prone ways, yet continues to remain in the public eye. When it comes down to it and Joe goes head-to-head with President Trump in the 2020 general election, Biden stands an excellent chance of being a thrice failed candidate for POTUS. Check out this recently unearthed clip of Biden sounding eerily similar to Trump when it comes to Mexico – and it’s not from that long ago. LOOK: A review of rhetoric from Joe Biden’s record on immigration. It included boasting about needing a 700 mile fence to stop “tons…tons…tons” of drugs from “corrupt Mexico”…
