The president told service members at al-Asad air base in Iraq that he was proud to secure them a much-needed pay bump of “more than 10 percent” after years of stagnant wages.



“Is anybody here willing to give up the big pay raise you just got?” Trump said, asking for a show of hands. “You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.”


so whats the deal?

is he lying or is this some liberal hit piece?
another nothing burger??

but if he is lying... why?
why would he lie about this?

do you support this lie?


if it is a lie


In fact, military members have seen a pay raise in each of the last 10 years, ranging from 1 percent to 3.9 percent, according to the Defense Department.



Trump told the troops that other people wanted their raise to be smaller, but he fought for a double-digit boost. “We had plenty of people that came up. They said, ‘You know, we can make it smaller. We can make it 3 percent.
We can make it 2 percent. We can make it 4 percent.’ I said, ‘No. Make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent.’


so fly over to iraq to visit the troops then just shovel a load of # right in their face?

That’s wrong. Depending how you count it, the most recent year without a military pay raise was either 35 or 57 years ago — not 10. And the most recent pay raise wasn’t even the biggest in the past 10 years; it was exceeded by raises in 2008, 2009 and 2010, during the Bush and Obama administrations.

When I got back from Afghanistan Obama gave me a 1% pay cut due to tax increases throughout 2014 and 2015. That was after a supposed pay raise that he extolled as help for the troops.

His taxes wiped all that out and bit a chunk out of my check.

This idea that we have continually seen pay raises is BS. Those raises are regularly wiped out by heavy taxation.

This would be the first pay raise that wasn't immediately taxed away.

The fact you give HUFPO any credit at all is mindboggling.

They just ran a hit piece on Xmas claiming Trump as the 1st POTUS to not visit Troops on XMAS.

And of course we all know that was BS.

Ill give you a small hint.

SO IS THIS.

Trump has the mistaken idea that everyone will believe his lies. It is so common place now that no one is really surprised anymore.
