Webp.net-resizeimage (9)

President Trump used the cover of the partial government shutdown to slip off to visit US troops in Iraq.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump met with military personnel on Wednesday at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, according to photos from Reuters.

His whereabouts sparked speculation about what Trump was up to because he hadn’t tweeted in more than 17 hours, no press aides were in the media office and lights were turned off on the second floor where White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has her office.

It is the first time Trump has visited troops in a war zone since becoming president.
