Trump & Melania Make Surprise Visit To Iraq

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq - their first visit to a war zone since Trump took office nearly two years ago.

In photos distributed by Reuters, the president and first lady posed for selfies with the troops. The president spoke to military and political leaders at Al Asad Airbase, in western Iraq, as well.

The White House said in a statement that they secretly traveled to Iraq yesterday evening, on Christmas, to wish service men and women a happy holiday.

The secret trip came amid speculation that President Trump was not at the White House, because he had not tweeted for hours and the marine that stands guard when he's in the Oval Office was not outside the West Wing.  Nice one!
