As the US stock market makes a massive rebound, President Donald Trump touched down in Iraq on Wednesday for an unannounced visit with U.S. troops, marking his first encounter with soldiers serving under his command in a combat zone. The White House said Trump and first lady Melania Trump left late Christmas night. Air Force One flew overnight and landed under the cover of darkness Wednesday at Joint Base al Asad, west of Baghdad. The unannounced trip comes at a time of change in the region following the president's announcement earlier this month that he will withdraw American troops from Syria — a heavily criticized move that prompted the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. Making his first visit to a troubled region, Trump said he was more concerned for the people accompanying him to Iraq than he was for himself, the AP reported. He made the 11-hour flight on a darkened Air Force One with lights off and window shades drawn, accompanied by military jet escorts. President Trump, his wife and National Security Adviser John Bolton traveled on Air Force One to al-Asad airbase, west of the capital Baghdad, to meet military personnel in the base's restaurant. He spent about three hours at the base in what is his first visit to the region.

During the visit he got a standing ovation from troops as he entered a dining hall and walked around greeting them, posing for selfies with them and signing autographs.

MAGA!!!!

That's pretty cool of him.

That's pretty cool of the market too. Now if Soros would keep his big mouth shut (we know he's doing insider trading) then the market would do what it's doing. I thought we had laws against that sorta thing... When Soros says pull your money out... the world pulls their money out. He should be jailed for that.

What are the odds the MSM spins both as horrible things, or gives Obama credit?

U.S. stock market, is far from stable. This is trumps first visit, to our Military in Iraq. Every other sitting president, had visited their first year in office.

President Obama, went in April, his first year in office, trump has been in, almost 2 years. How many opportunities, did trump pass on, to honor our troops, just last Veteran's day. He did not even visit Arlington. Not a word about Pearl Harbor.

Bone spurs, is one of the worst presidents ever. Skipping, chances to honor the fallen, because it was sprinkling, and did not want to get his hair wet!

He is supposed to stopping somewhere else too but I couldn't stomach listening to the MIC puppets on FOX talking about how bad it was to pull out of Syria so guess I will find out later.

It's great that the President and First Lady will be among people who really appreciate what he's doing for them and our country.

Dow is surging over 1000 points.

I'm hearing that the NYtimes story on Trump's bone spurs is fake news.

It was a HORRIBLE IDEA pulling out of Syria! You will see. He was advised to absolutely not to pull out.

trump should have learned, other times he pulled out, it will cause problems!

Yawn.

If you really want to sell us war, at least be convincing about it.

He has done more for our Military than any recent President.

He's been busy working for the troops and not just paying lip service as previous President's did. They actually got a raise under Trump's leadership whereas Obama never gave them one in 8 years.

They get to leave IraQ, Syria and Afghanistan and come home to their families. If it was up to Dems and RINO's they would never be allowed to leave those God forsaken places.

what has the Dow been doing for a month?It is far from stable. Tomorrow it could easily drop, 1,200. There is uncertainty.

Bone spurs, is the reason given for trump not being drafted. You don't think, trumps dad couldn't pull strings? Right.

I was asked to pull out once... Long story short.... I shoulda pulled out....

Note to Trump... Always pull out. Less child support that way.

This is the first time in almost 2 years in office, he is visiting the troops. Again, how many times did he , not show up to pay tribute to the fallen?

It is a slap in the face, to our troops.

When troops can home from the ME while Obama was president, people complained.

The market is far from stable, but a record breaking gain of over 1000 points is a good sign.

I didn't see a thread on the bone spurs so i posted here. I apologize to OP for being off topic.

Really? I didn't feel that slap. I'm a "troops". How would you know? Are you a "troops" too? Rather have the PotUS making America great again than taking precious time out of seeing me. Though, if he did, that would be pretty cool. If he didn't, man.... I'd be so happy to NOT be in a war zone like Siria. Why would you want to be in a constant state of war? Don't you care about peoples lives being lost? What do you know about war. What doesn't keep you up at night, screaming in sweat because you're still there in your dreams but you know you're not supposed to be there? How many people have you killed over war, only to have that feeling of dread in your gut every day of your life because you feel horrible for taking someone's brother, father, child, husband away from someone who loved them?


You talk about support for fallen troops yet you want to keep them... Falling.

Indeed!

(ENTER your own stupid criticism here) SARCASM OFF
