In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump Greets Troops during Surprise Visit to Iraq

From the Washington Examiner:

President Trump made an unannounced visit to troops stationed in Iraq on Wednesday, landing after hours of speculation in Washington on his whereabouts. 

Trump addressed U.S. soldiers and posed for selfies at Al Asad Airbase near Baghdad a day after Christmas. First lady Melania Trump joined him on the trip. 

The visit was a closely guarded secret until after Air Force One landed, but the mysterious departure of a plane from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland triggered theories that Trump was traveling abroad. 

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the trip on Twitter. 

“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas,” Sanders wrote

  1. What a guy!
    Here we have a 70+yr old guy keeping the MSM and the politicos in a tizzy trying to keep up with him and failing badly.
    ot: I am so grateful to still be here to watch MrTrump do what he does so well. After decades of Presidents afraid to move, afraid to do anything new or original, MrTrump will definitely be a hard act to follow.

  2. How could this be??? The media has been talking for days about how evil Trump was because he refused to meet with our men and women fighting in Iraq during the holidays!! You mean the media was so entangled in its anti-Trump 24/7 campaign that they lied to us or purposely mislead us? I think the American people know the right answer on this one.

    Note: recent polls show that 80 percent of the American people have little or no trust in media reporting. We all know the reason why. That’s never been reported in the main stream press that I know of. Only by the institutions doing the research.

  3. CBS Evening News was critical of President Trump since this is the first time he has visited a war zone. They pointed out that Obama visited Iraq in the first three months of his presidency.

    1. CBS crows about Obama’s visit to the troops, but says NOTHING about Americans left to die in Benghazi. CBS also ignored why he was unreachable that night. I’m glad Trump visited the Troops, it was the right thing to do. God bless him for doing that, and may God bless our troops and bring them home safely.

      1. Obama also pulled troops out of Iraq while it was still unstable. He left a vacuum.

        As far as Trump’s pull out of Syria Trump said the US can still use Iraq for a base to bomb ISIS in Syria if need be.
