Amazing! President Trump just made a surprise trip to Afghanistan to visit our troops and wish them a happy Thanksgiving.
Air Force One touched down in Afghanistan at 11:03 AM EST after a 13 hour overnight trip from JBA. Somehow, President Trump snuck out of Mar a Lago and flew out of an undisclosed airport in Florida on an off-the-record plane.
The president landed at Bagram Air Field, the largest U.S. base in Afghanistan. He was expected to be on the ground for about two-and-half hours as a part of the surprise Thanksgiving trip.

Just there to support our brave men and women in uniform
I’m thankful for our troops today and I’m thankful for a president who is too
