President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump secretly traveled to Iraq overnight to make a surprise visit to the United States troops.
This trip came as a huge shock to most considering it was Christmas night and no one expected this.
Of course, it was a completely unannounced trip so as not to spoil the surprise for anyone overseas. Imagine waking up for another day of work and the President of the United States and his First Lady are greeting you.
There was rumors that Air Force One was spotted, but it was White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders who made the official announcement.
“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas,” she wrote
