Trump makes false claim to troops about pay

Troops are not supposed to be involved in political activities because the military is not a political force, CNN reports.

Not to be outdone, Newsweek reported that the White House allegedly revealed the deployment of a Navy SEAL team in Iraq by including footage of the president and First Lady Melania Trump posing with the team in a video posted on Twitter. "You haven't gotten one in more than 10 years".

The Trump administration's plan to withdraw American troops from Syria could take several months to implement, U.S. officials told ABC News Friday, stressing that an exact time frame has not yet been agreed. This is also a president who is dealing with the Mueller investigation.

Trump's visit to Iraq came a day after he held a video conference from the Oval Office with military members around the globe.

The statement added that during the call, Abdul Mahdi and Trump had discussed the developments in the region, especially in the light of the United States decision to pull out forces from Syria. His replacement, a former Boeing executive, has scant foreign policy or military experience.

Trump invited Abdul Mahdi to Visit Washington.

"We won't get anything from America", said Baghdad resident Mohammad Abdullah.

In addition, skilled migrants seeking five-year visas could have consultation on a mimunum salary requirement of 30,000. However, the group added that it will continue to campaign for a longer two-year post-study work visa.

"It's time for us to start using our head", the president told reporters at the Al Asad Air Base west of Baghdad where he and first lady Melania Trump spent a little more than three hours on the ground with USA troops.

JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Maryland President Donald Trump once opined that it wasn't "overly necessary" for him to visit troops in danger zones overseas. "The troops all should've known it was all complete nonsense", McCaffrey said, "but they were sort of excited the commander in chief was there and were willing to blow by it". I don't see too many hands.

"I made it clear from the beginning that our mission in Syria was to strip ISIS of its military strongholds", said Trump, who wore an olive green bomber style jacket as he was welcomed by chants of "USA!"

But after defeating IS militants in their last urban bastions a year ago, Iraqi politicians and militia leaders are speaking out against the continued presence of USA forces in Iraqi soil.

"There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president", USAFE told Stars and Stripes.

That explanation did little to temper criticism from some lawmakers about what they viewed as an effort by Trump to manipulate the military for political purposes. He told the troops: "You know, when you think about it, you're fighting for borders in other countries, and they don't want to fight-the Democrats-for the border of our country. It is wrong to put service members in such a position and it severely undermines our democratic principles", he added.

McCaffrey also had little time for what he called the president's boasts about how fraught with danger visiting Iraq could be.
