President Trump and the first lady appeared in Iraq on Wednesday for a surprise visit with troops and senior military leadership at Al Asad Air Base, where he said he has "no plans at all" to remove any of the 5,000 U.S. troops from the country.

Trump's visit -- his first as president to a combat zone -- comes on the heels of his announcement about pulling troops out of Syria and the rumored removal of thousands of troops in Afghanistan.:snip:

Trump, visiting troops in Iraq, defends Syria pullout plan

 

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump appeared in Iraq on Wednesday for a surprise visit with troops and senior military leadership at Al Asad Air Base. There, he said it's because of U.S. military gains against the Islamic State terror group that he can withdraw 2,000 forces from Syria.

"We're no longer the suckers, folks," Trump told service members at the base, which is situated in western Iraq. "We're respected again as a nation."

During his first visit to the troubled region, Trump also said he has "no plans at all" to remove any of the 5,000 U.S. troops from that country.

The horror! U.S. troops want America to be great

Paul Mirengoff

December 27, 2018

Until two days ago, President Trump was under attack for not visiting U.S. troops overseas during Christmastime. For example, NBC News declared Trump the “first president since 2002” not to do so.

This turned out to be fake news. Trump visited U.S. forces in Iraq.

Now, the mainstream media has a new complaint. It moans that some of the troops Trump visited wore “Make America Great Again Hats.” Some went so far as to ask the president to sign them.

This is terrible! It’s bad enough that an American president advocates making America great. What have we come to when our troops endorse this desire?
