President Donald Trump visited Afghanistan for the first time on Thanksgiving Day with a surprise visit to an airbase in the country to meet American troops.
Trump walked in to Bagram airbase unannounced as troops looked up from their Thanksgiving dinner.
Alright, who wants some photos, said one of the officers accompanying Trump into the room. Everybody stood up and cheered.

Friggin’ WOW! Awesome. Racking up those frequent flyer miles for a good cause. BUTT! Grrrrrrreta will not be pleased that he spewed a bunch of pollution getting there. Me? Makes me proud. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Amazing and very sacrificial. I only hope that they have a video satellite phone on Air Force 1 so he can be with Melania and his family also sort of. I got teary-eyed watching it. Can you imagine being served food on your tray by President Trump and then realizing you’re about to eat that food? Amazing amazing amazing
I got teary-eyed watching it
Same here, damn this guy just crushes me..
Oh now THIS must be impeachable!!
Trump thinking about others.
God Bless Trump.
He’s in it and given himself for the sake of America which he loves. May we learn form his example.
Thank you President Trump Trump. I missed this today because I wanted to stay away from the news. Im so proud he went there.
Makes me wish this guy could be President forever.
No doubt the media will either ignore this, or find something wrong
I was just thinking this morning how the President was going to spend the day, and wondered if because VP Pence had visited the troops in Iraq, he might be going to Afghanistan. Stay safe Mr. President!!
I appreciate the gesture but a good cause would be not having troops in Afghanistan to visit.
Next year he'll be able to shake the hands of service members who weren't even born when 9/11 happened.
End endless wars.
I was actually expected him to pop up in South Korea to visit the troops there and have a surprise meeting with north and south Korean leaders. Maybe Christmas.
Well, there is that. I’m no dove by any stretch but we need to be out of there.
Trump is supercharged...He does this for the love of country, to make it proud, to bring it back from those with bad intentions, those who hate America, such as the Democrats and their disciples of deceit in the media...Just reviewing his itinerary is enough to stress most people out. Trump built an empire before he ever ran for office. Trump’s done more before he ever ran for president than all the establishment politicians put together.
Grrrrrrreta’s probably sitting in a yurt in Oregon, eating tofurkey and pine nuts, and waiting on a zero-carbon footprint lift back to The Land of Pickled Herring.
Did he clear this action with Pelosi ?
I know a man with 4 tours in Vietnam who never ate Turkey or even a hot meal in Vietnam on T Day. I recall eating INDIG rations west of Duc Lap on T Day, again on Christmas, plus New Years Eve and Day. Frankly the INDIG shrimp and mushrooms on rice was very good if we had bamboo near us. Fresh bamboo shoots are awesome.
Those were my first thoughts. I recall some other visit of Trumps that the media had a cow over because he left and did not tell anyone of no importance.
I can see the President tell the rats of such intentions only for them to tell the enemy of his plans before he touches down and have their own welcoming party to greet him.
