There was rumors that Air Force One was spotted, but it was White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders who made the official announcement.

Within minutes, Sanders already had thousands of likes’ retweets, and comments in support of the presidential visit to Iraq.

Trump was recently criticized for not traveling to Iraq sooner, but clearly did a great thing and showed his support for the military.

USA Today detailed the previous criticism, stating:

“Trump’s Christmas journey, cloaked in secrecy, comes as he is weighing a major reduction in forces in the the 17-year-old conflict in Afghanistan and also during a shakeup in the top rungs of military leadership.

Trump was criticized this year for failing to visit with front-line troops earlier in his presidency. President Barack Obama traveled to Iraq shortly after taking office and President George W. Bush visited Baghdad in 2003 months after the Iraq war began.

The timing of the president’s visit appeared designed to soothe bipartisan alarms that followed a series of abrupt decisions upending U.S. foreign policy. Trump announced on Twitter last week that he would withdraw more than 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria and then parted ways with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis days later.

Trump is also considering a significant reduction in forces in Afghanistan, USA TODAY and other outlets reported last week. The moves in Syria and Afghanistan were consistent with promises Trump made during his campaign, but they unsettled some lawmakers because they appeared to be made over the objection of military advisers.”

POLL: Do you still stand with President Trump?

When the government is shut down, then what else is a president to do? It’s a perfect time to make a surprise trip to visit the troops for Christmas and show support. Democrats already know where Trump stands in negotiations and it doesn’t seem like Trump is willing to move on his demands unless provided with a decent offer from Democrats.

Any negotiations made while Trump is in Iraq can easily be relayed via modern communication technology. Being overseas will not prevent the American president from negotiations if Democrats are willing to present a viable offer that includes a desirable amount of funding for Trump’s border wall.

Democrat Chuck Schumer stands in Trump’s way.

He has plenty of time to think about his next move as the Trump’s spend time with the American military.
