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.



The trouble is, that is absolutely BS and if you really don't know that you aren't looking. The US military has had a pay rise every year for the last ten years. Why talk BS when it can so easily be refuted? It just says more about you than you really want people to know.

You didn't type that with a straight face, did you? Name one thing.


Well..he DID give the military the first raise they've had in 10 years. That's one.

He's rebuilding our Military and bringing home troops from Syria and Afghanistan. If your family member was over there i bet you would feel much differently.


Uh, no. They've gotten on every year for ten straight years. HE told them to their faces that they didn't, for some reason. He literally could not stop from lying to troops who knew he was lying to them. Then the idiot tells them he got them a ten percent raise this year, when it was 2.6 percent. The man is a buffoon.

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!


Can I have your permission to print this and use it as an example of awful misuse of commas?

FYI, what they're talking about when they say we didn't get a raise is that we didn't get a budgeted raise. We're mandated to get a 1% raise every year by law. To give us less than 1%, they would literally have to pass a law saying we get less than 1% this year. Most of the years of Obama's presidency, we either got 1% or just over that, like 1.3%, 1.6% or some other joke like that. Effectively, Congress and the president authorized us a 0.3% and 0.6% raise in those years, respectively. So while it's technically incorrect to say we didn't get raises at all, we got jack #. And yeah, I'm well aware there are folks around the country who got less, but that's not really the point here.

Let's abide by Iraqi leaders wishes, and bring our sons and daughters home...ASAP!


Following President Donald Trump's surprise Christmas visit to U.S. troops stationed in Iraq, Iraqi leaders have expressed their desire for the remaining U.S. forces to leave their country permanently.

ABSOLUTELY!!

We've spent enough lives and treasure, if the Iraqi's can't stand on their own after this long? They don't deserve to, quite frankly.

It well past time to bring them home.

You are correct Sir/Ms. I saw Trump say it in his speech and saw a source somewhere that said so, but they did receive raises these past 10 years, however mennial.

He could have thought he was telling the truth. Maybe he told the Defense Dept. or whoever during a meeting he talked about having to give them 10 percent or more and they just didn't follow orders.

Since Trump did stand in front of the troops and plainly say he gave them a 10 percent raise, he needs to absolutely do it. 10 percent..no less!

By the way..he didn't lie...he misspoke.
That's what they called it when Obama lied.

It's called hyperbole. Instead of saying you got #ty raises the last 10 years, he says you got "no" raises. It's like saying you did something 1000 times when you really only did it a few dozen. Everyone knows it's hyperbole. They've been covering Trump for 3 years now and they still can't get it right.

As for who didn't give us the raise, the President has no direct authority over that. The Pentagon doesn't give us raises, Congress does. The President's say is limited to the negotiations while the spending bill is drafted that contains our pay, and possible veto of the bill if he doesn't like what's in it. It could've been 1% and he asked them to make it 5% and they made it 2.6% to meet in the middle, we don't know. "I wanted you to get 10%" is just more hyperbole and everyone with a brain knows it, including most of the military people he was talking to. Despite leftist propaganda, the military isn't full of morons.

The way CNN bashed our brave Troops in Iraq today, I'd like to see the top brass at that terrorist network be held accountable for their anti-America posture these past 2 years.

President Trump is (hopefully) fed up with CNN, after their verbal assault on our U.S. military in Iraq.

This evening the U.S. Airforce (European Command) told CNN (and the world) that it's OK for troops to have personal items signed/autographed by the Commander-in-Chief.

Nothing like leaping before you look...again.

Carriers going off to war...oh, oops, no they weren't.

SEAL Team Five compromised...except, oops, odds are good they weren't SEAL's at all.

Sweet Jesus, have they never heard of fact checking?

There are plenty of goofs to go around, no need to make 'em up, guys...

Fact checking? What's that?

There was a SEAL Chaplain that was there, which is where the "Well if he's a SEAL, he wouldn't be there without his Team, so obviously everyone else there is a SEAL" came from. But that's a hell of a leap to make without even trying to fact check.

Yep. Saw that. Hell of a leap. Not out of the realm of possibility, but man, check your facts people.

Mr. Trump's denigration of the families of fallen Service Members, his recent use of troops as PR tokens, his lack of regard for somber military rituals, etc. etc., all speak the full truth about how much respect and admiration he has for military personnel. This photo op and any associated remarks by him are as phony as his claim to have dealmaking skills.

Anti-America NBC NEWS lowered its own prestige down to sewer-level last week.


A left-leaning mainstream media news outlet has egg — or should we say eggnog? — on its face after an article slamming President Donald Trump over Christmas ended up being off base just hours later.

On Christmas Day, NBC News published what can only be described as a hit piece, scorning the president for ignoring American troops during the holidays.

“Trump becomes first president since 2002 not to visit troops at Christmastime,” that outlet’s scolding headline declared.
