Trump took a moment on Thanksgiving to respect and honor the troops of the United States, and it was a heartfelt thank you from our President. He made the call on Thursday to those aboard the USS Monterey, stationed in Afghanistan.
From Conservative Tribune:
Trump took time out of his Thanksgiving to call Army service members in Afghanistan, Marines in Iraq, Navy sailors aboard the USS Monterey, and an Air Force squadron in Turkey
“Everybody’s talking about the progress you’ve made in the last few months since I opened it up,” Trump said in his call.
“We opened it up, we said, ‘go ahead, we’re going to fight to win. We’re not fighting anymore to just walk around, we’re fighting to win,’” he said.
“We have to let you win. They weren’t letting you win before. They were letting you play even … We’re letting you win …
“And you people, you’ve really turned it around in the past three to four months like nobody’s seen and they are talking about it. So thank you very much, brave, incredible fighters,” Trump continued.
He also thanked members of the Coast Guard for their incredible job during Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria that devastated parts of Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean islands.
Thank you very much to our troops, who protect this country and let us have the freedom to celebrate these holidays. We wish you all the best as you continue to fight for all of us.
