President Donald Trump went to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq on his first visit to U.S. troops in the Middle East as president.
First lady Melania Trump joined him on the unscheduled Wednesday visit.
Trump visited with U.S. troops stationed in South Korea in Nov. 2017, but he had yet to visit Americans deployed in the Middle East.
Two years! It took this coward two years to finally sac up and go visit the troops that HE is ultimately responsible for.
And you know he only did this because he was being shamed by just about everybody for never visiting Iraq or Afghanistan and for not spending time with the troops during the holidays.
I would bet my house that if he was not getting attacked from all sides that he would have gladly stayed in the White House or Mar-a-Lago for the entire holiday season and never once visited or phoned anybody fighting overseas.
