Trump’s Surprise Thanksgiving Trip Honors America’s Heroes

President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to American troops garrisoned at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan, serving Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings to our men and women in uniform.

The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey has more:
 

The trip comes about one year after he made a similar unannounced visit to service-members in Iraq, his first to an active war zone. The president was previously scheduled to be at his Mar-a-Lago resort on Thanksgiving and was expected to merely make a phone call to troops.

“I’ll be talking to you later but right now I want to have some turkey. I’m going to join you for a little lunch,” Trump said after doling out servings of turkey. “We’re also going to shake hands with some of the folks. Thank you very much. What a great job you do. It’s an honor to be here.”

 

“It’s a dangerous area and he wants to support the troops,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said about the trip. “He and Mrs. Trump recognize that there’s a lot of people far away from their families during the holidays and we thought it’d be a nice surprise.”

Eight thousand six hundred American troops remain in Afghanistan.
