On Christmas, the mainstream media ran a series of articles criticizing President Trump for being the first president since 2002 to fail to visit troops at Christmastime.

However even as the articles were being written, the exciting news broke that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump had landed in Iraq to visit troops at Al Asad Air Base.

Photos from the event showed how excited the troops were to see President Trump. It was an amazing surprise and Christmas gift to them all.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared a particularly powerful moment that President Trump had with a serviceman.

"Member of United States Army told the President he came back into the military because of him. And President Trump responded, 'And I am here because of you.' I met him after and he gave me the patch from his arm. Incredible."

This is President Trump's first visit to a war zone since becoming president.
