Will the POTUS spend Thanksgiving with U.S. troops abroad?

Last edited Sat Nov 17, 2018, 09:16 AM - Edit history (1)

He's been president for almost 2 years and hasn't visited our combat troops overseas yet, something every president since FDR has done. Thanksgiving would be a great time to make a surprise visit.
Do you think he will, DI?

1. Not the right question.

Fuck Trump or any other presidents going to one of our war zones, the real question is when is one of them going to bring our people home for the holidays.

4. The troops wouldn't be needed at the border

if the Democrats hadn't rolled out the red carpet to greet illegals. (Like the entire state of California has.)

18. The Democrats didn't vote against the 2013 immigration reform bill.

The bill had $15 billion for the wall. More than what Trump has asked for.

6. That's our country, those troops are home

I know it must be confusing to you, having grown up with things all reversed in this country, but the actual role of a military is to defend its country's borders, rather than define those of other countries.

21. Where: Iraq or Afghanistan

Why:
1. out of respect for their sacrifices
2. to personally thank the men and women of the U.S who are exposing themselves to great dangers for the country.

9. I don't think our troops need the physical presence of the president to know

that he's foursquare in their corner, as opposed with his predecessor, who despite all those photo-ops consistently betrayed contempt for the men and women protecting us.

And so I for one don't care what he's doing for Thanksgiving; maybe he should be out playing golf, just to piss off his critics.

28. No matter what Trump does on thanksgiving

The military knows they have the full support of Trump, unlike when Obama was president. Obama hates the military and this country, and the military was fully aware of it.

Harry Truman NEVER went to Korea to visit the troops at all, Ike did.

He'll spend the day shoveling McDonalds crap down his gullet.

After that, he'll be too busy pardoning turkeys on the WH lawn, accusing turkey-eaters all over the US of conducting a "disgusting witch hunt. After which he'll congratulate himself bigly for saving so many persecuted turkey lives.

At his Mar-A-Largo estate with his family and wealthy donors.

But, maybe he'll surprise us and visit troops in a combat zone, something the commander-in-chief should do. We'll see.

40. OK here's a clue...

It's not just a photo-op if he goes and shows he really truly cares about the troops that won't be home for the holiday instead of making the whole thing all about himself.


Is he capable of doing that? Is he able to refrain from turning it into a political rally with himself as the center of attention? You know...just go and be one of them for a little while...

If he can do that, then it's NOT just a "photo-op"
