Amazing: Trump’s Surprise Visit To Troops In Afghanistan Shows Everything We Love About POTUS 45

(Tea Party PAC) – As millions of Americans pulled their Thanksgiving dinners together or traveled to visit their families, the President of the United States traveled to visit those who work every day to make it all possible.

Our troops.

On Thursday, it was revealed that Trump had made a surprise visit to visit our troops in Afghanistan after a covert trip conducted in complete secrecy.

POTUS 45 arrived at Bagram Air Field around 8:30 pm local time and spent roughly two-and-a-half hours in the nation. The press pool was under “strict instructions” to keep the visit secret for security reasons, according to CBS News.

The White House Director of Social Media, Daniel Scavino Jr., tweeted out two videos of the president’s arrival at the base and the introduction to his speech before the smiling troops, who seemed elated at the surprise visit from their Commander-in-Chief.

Before his remarks to the troops, Trump and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, served turkey to the roughly two dozen troops in the dining area which had been decorated for the holiday.

“There’s nowhere I’d rather spend Thanksgiving than with the toughest, fiercest warriors,” the president said.. “I’m here to say Happy Thanksgiving and thank you very much. As president of the United States, I have no higher honor than serving as commander-in-chief.”

“We will continue to work tirelessly for the day when all of you can go home to your families, and that day is coming very soon,” he added.

President Trump was joined by acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), and White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

Grisham told reporters that the secret trip had been planned for weeks.

“It’s a dangerous area and he wants to support the troops,” she said. “He and Mrs. Trump recognize that there’s a lot of people who are away from their families during the holidays and we thought it’d be a nice surprise.”

On Wednesday, everyone who wasn’t in the know had been told the First Family was scheduled to spend Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.

This is everything that the American public loves about Trump. He won’t hesitate for a moment giving up what was sure to be a lavish and luxurious Thanksgiving vacation, which he surely deserves after working so hard to make our country so great, to go and visit those who are unable to spend the holiday with their own families.

Last week, Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence made a surprise visit to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, and last year, POTUS and FLOTUS visited troops there for Christmas.

Breitbart notes:

During his brief trip, the president met with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and announced that the U.S. has restarted negotiations with the Taliban.

“The Taliban wants to make a deal — we’ll see if they make a deal. If they do they do, and if they don’t they don’t. That’s fine,” the president said.

“The Taliban wants to make a deal and we’re meeting with them and we’re saying it has to be a cease-fire and they didn’t want to do a cease-fire and now they do want to do a cease-fire,” he added. “I believe it’ll probably work out that way.”

Trump ran his 2016 campaign promising to end the nation’s “endless wars” and has been pushing to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and in the Middle East, despite protests from top U.S. officials, Trump’s Republican allies in Washington and many U.S. allies abroad. For months now, he has described American forces as “policemen” and argued that other countries’ wars should be theirs to wage.

Tens of thousands of Afghan civilians and more than 2,400 American service members have been killed since the war began 18 years ago.

Just last week, Trump flew to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to oversee the transfer of remains of two Army officers killed when their helicopter crashed as they provided security for troops on the ground in Logar Province in eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban still controls or holds sway over about half of the country, staging near-daily attacks targeting Afghan forces and government officials.

  1. This is very heartwarming and cool! Thanks to all who helped our President get there and back safely. This made me very proud of our president! I even voted against him in 2016. However, President Trump has my vote in 2020. This is just one more reason to like him.

  2. Donald Trump is the greatest president and one of the best human beings ever. I love him, I love his leadership, I love everything he has done and is trying to do for the USA.

  3. What did Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton or any Democrat elected to office do for America on Thanksgiving Day?????except their usual …..nothing

  4. I think only two presidents loved our troops Pres Trump and George Bush and they show it no one cared to even cheer for oboma when he was in front of the troops JAM

  5. I understand that the heading of this post says “Tea Party pac”. I also understand that Trump has a 91% approval rating from those that voted for him. After reading these comments singing Trump praises as having a big heart. And bringing honor to our nation(Russia ) and going above and beyond by visiting the troops for thanksgiving. I was certain that this was a article intended for satire ( the use of humor, irony,exaggeration,or ridicule to exspose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues) this article and these comments remind me of a comic strip called “The far side “

  6. George Bush Jr. and Barak Obama should hang their heads to their dying days for getting us involved and keeping us in Afghanistan for nearly 20 years. A lot of innocent people have died there and we have accomplished very little except to create a breeding ground for more terrorists and Heroin. My heart breaks for the families of the American, British, and other coalition soldiers who have died or been maimed for life in this sad and desolate place. I blame our CIA, State Department, and the rest of the bureaucrats that supposedly keep us safe for completely ignoring history and sending the first American soldier there. God Bless our troops and bring them home at once! Let us hope the Afghans learn to live in peace someday without an occupying army trying to keep them from killing each other.

  7. Thank you much for a job well done! . . . These troops need a good boost at this time of the year AWAY from their families – It shows that you are a POTUS who cares. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  8. If anyone can make a deal with the Taliban, it is Donald Trump, master of “The Art of the Deal”. It is hard to believe that in these days of the Internet where world events can be viewed in real time, the Afghani people, Taliban and western-oriented alike, would not prefer to end their centuries-old lifestyle of killing and being killed, and exchange it for a ‘kinder, gentler’ way of living. When the Russians were in Afghanistan, they really wanted to take over and rule as the successful finale to a 200 year process in Russian history. We have no desire to rule in Afghanistan, and did help the Taliban drive the Russians out. So they owe us. Trump has to convince the Taliban to live as “half owners” of their divided country.

  9. This is why we love this man!! Always going above and beyond. God bless the President and his family, and the troops and their families.

  10. He is the best President of my lifetime. He has a gigantic heart, a real love of America and American people, he’s funny, he’s successful, he’s Pro-Life (which is most important to me), he’s a Christian, and he works hard EVERY single day! What more can you want? God bless President Trump and his family! KAG! TRUMP 2020! Deus Vult!

  11. Ho, hum (yawn!), let’s just see what kind of Marxist drivel the MSM try to conjure up on this! It has come to be a given that any good deed performed by POTUS somehow gets transformed into a crime of some sort! ANY American with even only one good eye, one good ear, and at least half sense has become able to penetrate the layers of Commie bilge the MSM have attempted to foist off on John Q. & Jane Q. Public, particularly over the past three years! It truly appears that CNN, MSDNC, the Knee Jerk Times, and the Foggy Bottom Post (to name a few) still don’t get it and more than likely never will!

  12. It was a great thing to do.. I think it was appreciated. Most presidents have done this . However the idiot MSM of course barely reported it and in fact some reported it wrong. Would it kill them to give this president just one break now and then.

  13. I think that is one of the most awesome things that I have ever seen a President do . What a moral builder for the troops . But most importantly . What a man , his Heart is truly All American , and He works tirelessly every day to bring safety and prosperity and honor to our Nation . You and Mr Pence and your wives truly honor us by the way that you serve our Nation . God Bless and keep a protecting hedge about you as He guides you through your Presidency Amen. Awesome just Awesome

  14. The leftist libTURD democRAT COMMIES HATE our military. This is just one more reason for them to HATE President Trump!

    They will use ANYTHING they can “think” up to remove out CONSTITUTIONALLY duly elected PRESIDENT!!

    If possible they will find SOMETHING about this surprise visit, to $H!T on OUR President!!
