President Trump Pledges ‘Unwavering Support’ For Our Troops
President Trump praised US troops as part of his European visit last day’s agenda during a visit to Naval Air Station Sigonella in eastern Sicily. Trump praised the troops for their continued efforts to fight terrorism in the Middle East and North Africa, and said the attacks that include a suicide bombing in Manchester, England, earlier this week and against Coptic Christians in Egypt underscore the need for a strong military. “The single greatest strength to our armed forces is you, you, all of you,” Trump said to the troops. “You have poured out your hearts, your souls and even your blood for this nation, and we will pour out our gratitude for you, in return.” However he didn’t mention they might not receive a cost of living pay adjustment commensurate with their civilian counterparts mentioned in the last edition of FOD.
