US President Donald Trump said he’s not planning to take American troops out of Iraq as he made his first visit to an active combat zone.
His surprise trip also sparked online frenzy after his plane had been noticed over Europe.
Speaking Al Asad Air Base west of Baghdad, Trump defended his decision to withdraw troops from Syria last week.
“I think a lot of people are going to come around to my way of thinking. It’s time for us to start using our head,” the president said.
“In fact we could use this as the base if we wanted to do something in Syria,” he added.
Trump, accompanied by wife Melania, visited the troops deployed in a war zone for the first time since the beginning of his presidency.

Trump is working harder for ISRAEL than for America.. “GREAT” Nations do not pay TRIBUTE to foreign places.

Once they are out it will mean they are going to be at huge risk every time they sneak into syria,they will be identified as insurgents and shot to pieces! Just get out and stay out thats the best thing the u.s. can do to help stabilize the country.
