“PRESIDENT TRUMP MAKES CHRISTMAS VISIT TO TROOPS IN IRAQ” So this really happened. It has NOTHING to do with the reinstatement of the currency…However, it a sign to us that the country is getting safer. But a “state” visit was NOT the purpose of this trip for Trump. He promised to return when the government is “fully” formed. Wow! This simply a visit to the armed forces base in Anbar…the visit was not actually surprising to the Iraq government but was asked to be kept quiet. Trump did say he fully intended someday soon to return for an “official state visit” but only when Iraq was ready.
