On the special occasion of Thanksgiving, U.S. President Donald Trump celebrated the winning of the nation.
On the Thanksgiving Day, the president tweeted a list of wins early in the morning that included — “highest Stock Market EVER,” “big, fat, beautiful tax cuts,” military successes, a new Supreme Court justice and a reduced unemployment rate.
Trump talked with troops stationed all over the world via video-chat and told them that reason behind their win is his administration which allowing them to win and do their jobs.
According to the White House pool report, he told forces in Turkey, “They say we’ve made more progress against ISIS than they did in years of the previous administration, and that’s because I’m letting you do your job.”
The President said in Iraq, “We’re being talked about again as an armed forces. We’re really winning. They weren’t letting you win before; we’re letting you win.”
Trump told service members there, “Everybody is talking about the progress you’ve made in the last few months since I opened it open. We said go ahead, we’re going to fight to win. We’re not fighting anymore to just walk around.” In addition, Trump announced in the month of August that additional 4,000 troops would be added in Afghanistan.
Trump video-chatted with the troops from his Mar-a-Lago golf resort — President was spending the Thanksgiving holidays there to service members in five branches of the military, those troops stationed included stationed in Kuwait and on the USS Monterey.
Trump said, “I know I speak on behalf of all Americans when I say that we totally support you — in fact, we love you. We really do. We love you.”
Ret. Lieutenant General Mark Hertling said on CNN, “You’re talking to soldiers and military personnel around the world who have been in this fight for 17 years and to suddenly be told they’re winning now when they weren’t winning before is somewhat insulting.” He called President’s remark “off kilter.”
He said that deployed service members don’t want to know “about the economy.” He added, “They want to hear, ‘Hey, thanks, for what you’re doing.’”
