As reported earlier by the D.C. Chronicle, we had a gut feeling and some Intel that we believed President Trump was on his was to the middle east to visit the troops.
That’s no longer a guess as President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are in fact in Iraq right now visiting the military.
The two left late Christmas night on Air Force One to the Middle East.
This is unprecedented as President Trump left the entire press corp behind, showing that he truly does not trust them, which is the sentiment for the American people as well.
Sarah Sanders tweeted this just moments ago.

The President continues to show his love for the men and women that wear the uniform. What a Christmas gift for the Commander in Chief to show up unannounced to visit American soldiers.
