CNN and fake news media are truly the enemy of the American people.
President Trump and lovely First Lady Melania Trump surprised US troops in Iraq Wednesday with a post-Christmas visit to Al Asad Air Base.
The troops went wild with a standing ovation and cheered after President Trump arrived at the base.
President Trump also signed red MAGA hats and took selfies with the troops to boost morale.
CNN decided to attack President Trump and our wonderful troops who sacrifice everything to serve their country.
Fake News CNN ran a headline Wednesday that angered Americans. “Troops bringing Trump hats to sign may violate military rule.” said CNN’s headline.
It’s Christmastime and the troops are away from their families, but leave it to CNN to attack them.
Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”
But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities.
Those guidelines say that “active duty personnel may not engage in partisan political activities and all military personnel should avoid the inference that their political activities imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause.”
US military authorities in the coalition did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
