Trump Surprises The MSM With This Thanksgiving Trip
The president has to be careful when he travels abroad, the MSM is always ready to disclose his location regardless of the consequences of their action. But that just made Trump extra cautious as he snuck away from Mar-a-Lago to visit and serve the troops thanksgiving dinner in Afghanistan.
“President Trump made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan to visit American troops stationed at Bagram Air Base over the Thanksgiving holiday.
According to The Washington Post, Trump departed on Air Force One from Florida on Wednesday, speaking to troops assembled in an airplane hangar on Thursday with a happy Thanksgiving message.
“We are winning like we have not won in a long time, we were respected like we have not been respected in a long time,” Trump told the troops, reports the Post. “Our citizens know that we are standing guard, crushing our enemies … I am here today to just really say, happy Thanksgiving, but also thank you very much.”
“There is nowhere I’d rather celebrate this Thanksgiving than right here,” said Trump, who proceeded to call the troops the “toughest, strongest, best and bravest warriors on the face of the earth,” according to the Associated Press.
Trump also announced during the trip that the U.S. had resumed peace negotiations with the Taliban, saying that “
“The White House took pains to keep the trip a secret after Trump’s cover was blown last year when Air Force One was spotted en route to Iraq by an amateur British flight watcher.
Cellphones and other transmitting devices were confiscated for most of the trip from everyone traveling aboard Air Force One. And Thanksgiving-themed tweets were teed up to publish ahead of time from Trump’s account to prevent suspicions arising about the president’s silence.
A small group of reporters was told to meet Wednesday night on the top floor of a parking garage in Maryland and was transported in black vans to Andrews Air Force Base. Nobody would confirm where he was going. The only guidance: Dress casually and warmly. Meanwhile, the president was secretly flying back from Florida, where reporters had been told he’d be spending Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago club.
The plane he’d flown to Florida — the modified 747 painted in the iconic white and blue of Air Force One — remained parked on the tarmac at West Palm Beach Airport to avoid revealing the president’s movement.
About 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, the president boarded a nearly identical plane concealed in a hangar at Andrews Air Force Base, taking off and landing under the cover of darkness, with cabin lights dimmed and window shutters drawn.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said plans for the visit had been in the works for weeks.
“It’s a dangerous area and he wants to support the troops,” Grisham told reporters before Trump landed. “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.”
Shortly after midnight, Trump and his entourage departed from Afghanistan.
The president told the troops he was honored to spend part of his holiday with them.
“There is nowhere I’d rather celebrate this Thanksgiving than right here with the toughest, strongest, best and bravest warriors on the face of the earth,” Trump said.”
This is great. Trump served troops stationed overseas thanksgiving dinner, spending time away from his family, just to care for the very troops that keep us all safe.
