Trump Says He Hasn’t Visited Troops In Afghanistan, Iraq Because He’s ‘Been Very Busy’


Mod: I guess it all depends on what your definition of 'busy' is.

Trump Says He Hasn’t Visited Troops In Afghanistan, Iraq Because He’s ‘Been Very Busy’ (Guardians of Democracy link): President Donald Trump told The Associated Press in an interview published on Tuesday that he hasn’t made his way overseas to visit troops because he’s “very busy.”

Trump told the AP that he’ll eventually go overseas to military bases in places like Iraq and Afghanistan “at some point” in his presidency, but he doesn’t “think it’s overly necessary.”

“Well, I will do that at some point, but I don’t think it’s overly necessary,” Trump said. “I’ve been very busy with everything that’s taking place here. We have the greatest economy in the history of our country. I mean, this is the greatest economy we’ve ever had, best unemployment numbers. Many groups are, you know, we’ve never even been close to these numbers. I’m doing a lot of things. I’m doing a lot of things. But it’s something I’d do. And do gladly.”

He added, “Nobody has been better at the military. Hey, I just got them a pay raise. I haven’t had a pay raise in 11 years. I just got them a substantial pay raise. ‘They’ meaning our military people. I just got them new equipment. They have stuff that was so old that the grandfathers used to fly it. I have done more for the military than any president in many, many years.”

Former President Barack Obama traveled to Iraq just months after he was inaugurated, according to the Huffpost.

According to NBCNews.com and the NBC News White House unit, Trump has spent 159 days out of his 636 days in office at a Trump golf resort. He has spent 210 days at Trump property during his presidency.

  3. Trump saying Dems funded the Caravan - More likely he did. Who has more to gain by the press of immigrants stacked up at the border or on bridges waiting to being "terror and crime" to the U.S.? These images are tailor made for Trump's hate which he will need to GOTV. The one issue he used to get elected is no now in play two weeks before mid-terms.....

    1. Want to punk Trump? MAGA hats for the entire Caravan. A sea of red MAGA hats heading this way. Trump would invite them to the White House and provide escorts across the border. He can't resist it!

  19. Russian trolls out in force with the election looming.

    Everyone should read the criminal complaint against Khusyaynova showing just how Trump's Russian friends are using social media to sow dissent and interfere with US politics and elections.

    It even describes how trolls should post early in their morning to hit certain groups here in the evening and just before going home to hit us here in the morning, which explains some of the early am troll posts on this site.
