The President seemed to love the troops, unless, of course, it’s raining or there’s a draft and he is required to serve. In both of those cases, well, the President was reluctant to inconvenience himself for members of the military. He is, quite literally, a fair-weather friend, committing with the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our commonwealth only when it benefits him.

Until Wednesday , Trump had yet to visit the troops in a combat area out of concern for “personal safety and legitimizing unpopular wars.” It was reported Wednesday, however, that he stopped in Iraq for a post-Christmas visit and photo op with service members, during which he called the troops “warriors” and “patriots” who are getting “billions and millions of dollars of new equipment that( Trump) approved over the last two years.”
