Trump sent out an early morning tweet wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving. Looking around the internet, a bunch were fooled and said Trump was tweeting and golfing in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Nope, snuck onto airforce one and went and helped serve a holiday dinner to US military members in Afghanistan.
Planning for the trip began weeks ahead of time, but only a very tight circle of White House officials were aware. And the White House went to new lengths to avoid arousing suspicion.
About damn time no one leaked any information.
On Thursday morning, the @realDonaldTrump account posted an unremarkable tweet wishing Americans a happy Thanksgiving. That tweet and several other retweets late Wednesday and early Thursday had in fact been scheduled ahead of time to avoid arousing suspicions around a President who rarely goes a dozen hours without taking to social media.
Way to fool the never Trumpers
Trump arrived in time to serve Thanksgiving dinner to about two dozen troops before sitting down to eat with Barrasso and a commander based at Bagram. Playing behind them while they ate: The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, beamed live from back in New York.
Gotta love the misdirection that happened.
Of course CNN doesn’t mention that Trump has re-opened talks with the Taliban that were ended a while back.
On a surprise trip to Afghanistan on Thursday, President Trump said that the United States has reopened peace talks with the Taliban - just three months after the president scuttled negotiations between Washington and the Afghan insurgents following a terror attack that killed 11 people, including one U.S. soldier.
