https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/26/politics/donald-trump-iraq-visit/index.htmlPresident Donald Trump and the first lady quietly swept into Iraq Wednesday to pay a holiday visit to US troops, at last making good on the President's promise to travel to one of the war zones he has derided as costly blunders.
After seeing the American war effort at close range for the first time, the President remained adamant that the days of broad-scale US involvement overseas had ended. He used his nighttime appearance at an air base west of Baghdad to reinforce his skeptical view of wading into foreign conflicts.
"If they want us to do the fighting, they also have to pay a price," Trump said at the Al Asad Air Base, where he landed after dark with his wife, Melania Trump. "Sometimes that's also a monetary price, so we're not the suckers of the world. We're no longer the suckers, folks. And people aren't looking at us as suckers."
Trump continues to Amaze.
