Daguire: President Trump and first lady Melania Trump makes surprise visit to US troops in iraq...
Smitty76: He could be there obviously to visit the troops but to give his approval of the new government.
Briona: He would not go there without a good reason, so I am expecting good results from it.
Derosgirl: Why Trump in Iraq?(of all places during the holidays) Seems something big is to happen or he would just sent some dignitaries over there!! IMO.
DTyler: Could also be just this simple of "Thank you" to the Troops for their work..............and Iraq for making Christmas an official holiday. Then of course, revisit timed withdrawal of troops and BASE visits..............we hope it is for what we are waiting on, but who knows.
Eccle519: Regardless what we think, Trump is an economic mind wanting economic results for the US. You know Mahdi and the bigs will be there to greet. Talking points will definitely be Isis, Forming the GOI and Economic reform...Trump knows Iraq is a cash cow!! Two birds with one stone...see troops and squash the can they keep kicking! Imo.
