Donald Trump Makes Surprise Thanksgiving Visit to Afghanistan
President Donald Trump has made a surprise visit to Afghanistan to address U.S. troops on Thanksgiving Thursday.
The president arrived at Bagram Air Field around 8:30 p.m. local time and spent roughly two-and-a-half hours with U.S.troops. The media was under “strict instructions” to keep the visit under wraps for security reasons, CBS News reports.
Daniel Scavino Jr., the White House’s Director of Social Media, tweeted a pair of videos of the president’s arrival at the military base and his introduction for his speech before U.S. troops.
