President Trump and First Lady Melania take secret trip to visit troops in Iraq

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have arrived in Iraq to visit troops of the United States military for Christmas. This was a trip that was not announced and done to surprise the troops and show them support from the American president. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stated on Twitter, "President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas."

Many Trump critics claim he does not care about the military, but it's quite the opposite. Trump loves the American military and flying all the way to Iraq on Christmas night is just one of the many ways he shows his appreciation for the soldiers. Trump has always been a critic of former President Barack Obama and stated that Obama had depleted the military.

Trump and Melania's surprise visit put a smile on many faces.

Can Trump handle the protests?
