    From The Military Times:

    Support for Trump is fading among active-duty troops, new poll shows

    "President Donald Trump’s approval rating among active-duty military personnel has slipped over the last two years, leaving today’s troops evenly split over whether they’re happy with the commander in chief’s job performance, according to the results of a new Military Times poll of active-duty service members."



    "About 44 percent of troops had a favorable view of Trump’s presidency, the poll showed, compared to 43 percent who disapproved."

    Unfortunately the timing of this trip is suspect with "The Donald" using this trip strictly for "political" reasons - to promote public support for his decision for military withdrawals from Syria and Afghanistan and as a diversion from the "chaos" that he left behind in Washington!

    This Commander-and-Chief views the US military as "props" to promote his personal "political agenda!"
    This is the year Trump goes and ties up all the loose ends preparing for 2020.
    Basically everything is going to be suspicious because it's not 100% genuine- the wall is to fulfill his campaign promise even though it's not really anything remarkable, and half the reason why he's over there in Iraq is likely so that he can show up all the people in the House on vacation by doing something he would've not done otherwise- pretty sure he had a vacation lined up before this recent thing with Congress.

    Being that it's a dereliction for an enlisted person to speak against the President, that statement doesn't hold much weight.

    None of Catholic Crusader's statements hold much weight.

    The Miltary Times poll I'd posted is is probably pretty accurate:



    "About 44 percent of troops had a favorable view of Trump’s presidency, the poll showed, compared to 43 percent who disapproved."

    Guess what: That is the last stupid ignorant post I want to read from you. Welcome to my Ignore List.

    For the record, it is NOT their duty to jump up and cheer and applaud and take selfies and get autographs from Trump but that's exactly what they did. Thats because they LOVE Trump, he supports them, unlike the socialist pig Obama.

    I hope the other members here will enjoy your future ignorance and stupidities. Luckily I will not see them.

    That's like- a couple troops.
    So you didn't make a point.

    There's something that someone should have stepped in and prevented before it happened:

    Trump's reveal of SEAL team in Iraq could endanger its members
    "The reason their identities are protected is in case of capture," said intelligence expert Malcolm Nance.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/don...embers-n952521

    That's not wholly Trump's fault; someone should have stepped in and said "Sorry, Mr. President, but doing this will endanger the lives of these troops."

    No one did. And so they are unnecessarily exposed to revenge from terrorists. These are very brave people, and they won't complain. But it was a serious breach of security.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    You're a little behind the times there B. That lie has already been debunked by actual former SEALs interviewed on tv.

    Good job spreading the fake news around.

    NBC News backtracks on report that said Trump did not visit troops over Christmas

    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...over-christmas

    NBC News attempted to backtrack on an article published Wednesday which claimed President Donald Trump did not visit the troops over Christmastime when in fact, he did.

    The liberal news outlet admitted in an extended editor's note that "the thrust of this article is no longer correct." NBC also adjusted the headline to: "Trump becomes first president since 2002 not to visit troops on or before Christmas." The president and first lady left Wednesday night to visit the troops on Thursday

    But no source for that? (Barbarian checks)

    Nope. No such thing. Must be "alternative facts", again.
