The airmen used the opportunity to take selfies with the president and the first lady, and get their hats signed by their celebrity US commander-in-chief.
On his first visit to the troops overseas, Trump spent several hours at the Al Asad Air Base west of Baghdad on Wednesday. The trip was organized in such secrecy, news of it did not leak to the media beforehand.
The location of his second destination was likewise unknown, though it was speculated it would be somewhere in Europe based on radar tracking, until reports came in of Air Force One touching down at Ramstein.Also on rt.com No pullout of Iraq, it can be base ‘to do something in Syria’ – Trump on first visit to troops
