In a touching Christmas moment, the troops in Iraq cheered and applauded when President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump walked on stage.
Late Tuesday night, Trump and the first lady traveled to Iraq so they could personally meet the troops for Christmas.
Ironically, the establishment media had prematurely slammed Trump just hours before his arrival because they believed he wasn’t going to show up.
Of course, the reality is that Trump loves the troops and they seem to love him back.

When Trump walked on stage during the Iraq visit, the troops roared.
The moment was caught on video and shared on Twitter by U.S. Air Force veteran Anna Paulina.
“President Trump and Melania were welcomed in Iraq by our troops on Christmas,” Paulina wrote. “The USA chants will bring pure tears to your eyes. What a Christmas moment.”
After applauding, some of the troops started chanting “U.S.A.”
Please retweet this for our Troops and for @realDonaldTrump so everyone sees this.

The moment showed how much many of the troops support Trump, who has improved the military and rewarded the troops with a generous pay raise.
Twitter users were touched by the heartwarming Christmas moment.
I’m very proud of our troops, president and first lady of the United States, God, bless you all.

One Twitter user brought up a good point about the media bias against Trump.
“Don’t believe the media. This is the raw reaction by patriots of all races to our President and lovely First Lady,” Kevin Schlegel wrote.

If the establishment media were unbiased, it would provide as much coverage to this video as it did to lambasting the president for supposedly not visiting servicemembers during the Christmas season.
Our advice: Don’t hold your breath.
