President Trump Speaks To CENTCOM MacDill Airforce Base…

President Donald Trump traveled to MacDill Air Force Base today in Tampa Florida to visit to US Central Command, meet officers who form the tip of the spear implementing his strategy to defeat the Islamic State group, and deliver remarks to the military.

CENTCOM military command is responsible for an area that includes the Middle East and Central Asia.  It plays a key role in Operation Inherent Resolve — the US-led mission to “degrade and defeat” the Islamic State group — which has resulted in 17,861 strikes across northern Syria and Iraq since August 2016. President Trump also ate lunch with the troops.

        Well said farmhand! I never get tired of watching President Trump speak. I love how our heroes in the military receive him so enthusiastically. I needed this uplift too, indeed all in the Treehouse needed it. Thank you Sundance for posting this video and thank you farmhand for reminding us that we must stick together, and keep on our knees praying for our President, our military, our other leaders, and our country.

      What a classy president. I’m sure the troops will appreciate a man of action, not words. You could just tell by the greeting he received from them. Time to kick a$$.

      Every single American, especially the MORONS like BLM terrorists, Berkeley ANARCHIST, Rotten’s entitled SNOWFLAKES, and others who don’t appreciate our Republic, should get down on their knees and give thanks for the bravest serving Military and Veterans on God’s green earth.

      President Trump will never, ever let you down. You will never be forgotten again. With President Trump in office, I believe there has never been a better time to add a box to our federal tax returns, so that we may volunteer an amount of our choosing towards “Veterans Only” accommodation. Derelict properties could be renovated along the lines of “Embassy Suites” hotels, which would provide privacy for individuals & families, along with a sense of camaraderie.

      We should have a collective goal of NO HOMELESS VETERANS by Thanksgiving of 2017. We are generous people, we raised billions for Haiti, only to discover it has been @#ssed away by the rotten, criminal Clinton Foundation. Time to take care of our Veterans.

    As a builder, Trump never hired a contractor and said, “let me know when the skyscraper is finished.” He would show up at the site and watch the pouring of the concrete. Looks like as CINC, he is not gonna simply hire Gen. Mattis and then just read one page summaries. He lunches with the spearchuckers.

      Who he does not trust in the military is the JCS. He may say nice things about Dunsford, but the JCS is not in his inner security group. He knows the generals and admirals who went along with Obama and Clinton/Kerry have no morale standing with the troops. Flynn knows all their weaknesses.

      The brass, if you look over the last twenty-five years, is vastly overrated, hugely inflated in numbers, and politicized. There are too many with stars and many with too many stars. It is a bloated officer corps.

      Good ones forced out, or fired. There is real conflict within the military who wanted a nice safe career and the men who wanted to win a war, somewhere, anywhere.

      Special forces have performed in over a hundred countries, but ISIS and AQ still spreads.
      CIA is backing and directing AQ and ISIS elements in several countries.

      These are real issues. Beyond which, rules of engagement, collateral damage, interrogation issues. and the pansifying and feminizing of soldiering has had its impact.

      Trump will make them leaner and meaner, not just give them more toys to use.
      He wants victories, not “bombing stats and body counts”.

      First comes building morale. Then comes the red pencil and cuts in the Pentagon.

    Hopefully DJT see’s the terrible uniforms and gives an order to get rid of the maternity suits for work and has a redesign of the Dress uniform as well. They both are unbecoming and need to look to something with some class. The troops will respond positive for sure.

      Liberals who long for or promote a “military coup” have no concept of what our military is like or what its traditions are. Nor do they realize that on the whole members of the armed forces take their oath very seriously. The rest of the country may be becoming a banana republic. The military–no, especially the enlisted men and women.

    Thank you again folks.

    Your President has,and I am sure,will continue to inspire good people. Not just in the U.S.A, but throughout the world.

    It is unlikely that true leadership can be learned, it is an innate quality that your DJT has in spades.

    When he is around kind, good and strong people those folks excel, conversely the weak, cowardly and manipulative shrivel. ( Ryan, McConnell, McCain.Kasich,) to name just four.

    If we look at Sen. Sessions,Sheriff Clarke, Mr Tillerson, General Mattis, General Kelly. Then in sports Jim Brown, Tom Brady and many top golf pros.

    Who would you want to have a beer and a pizza with, or tofu and organic beet juice if you are from The West coast.

    Thank you.

        “Tom Brady was ‘hurting all the time’ at age 25, but he saved his career by changing his diet and lifestyle:

        Diabetes is an example of something that you just have to work around regardless of former food preferences. I’ve heard from several people with arthritis issues that let up when they laid off certain food groups (esp. sweets). Alcohol is another one. Some people can tolerate alcohol, others are wrecked by alcohol and shouldn’t touch it. Let Tom Brady be Tom Brady!

    He’s calling out the media for not reporting on terror attacks. What a departure from John Kerry saying we need to stop reporting them. I’d like to see a compilation of all the attacks in Europe and the USA over the last 2 years released and publicized. Also would like to see a similar list released regularly moving forward, much like the provision in a previous EO that calls for a reporting of all the crimes committed by illegals in sanctuary cities. The American public as a whole needs to be educated on the threat that an open borders policy brings with it.

    What I marvel the most in is that every time I listen to him speak, I internalize every word and know that he means everything he says. Those men and women that had the opportunity today to hear it directly from Our President must be ready to run through a wall for this man! Morale in our military must have skyrocketed since his election. Dying for one’s country has become once again the most admirable thing you can do!

      Military personnel are to be expressionless while at attention, especially when their Commander in Chief is present.

      As to why they don.t look ‘happy’, most likely they are sorry they didn’t have President Trump in charge years ago.

    Everytime I listen to one of his messages to our military I become very proud that we elected this man despite the hurricane of media lies that was (and continues to be) launched at our psyches. Thank you, everyone, for voting and I hope we remain a source of strength against the daily onslaught so as to prove our unwavering determination that we all matter and we have the right to decide what is in our collective best interest for all hard working and honest Americans. In this manner we shall attract more supporters so that we can maintain the momentum achieved to take our government away from special interest and return it to its rightful duty of serving we, the people.

    Almost Two-Thirds of US Navy Fighter Jets Can’t Fly

    I don’t know if this is actual. Clearly, parts and maintenance is a problem. I think some of this is to pressure for Trillions, not billions. But we have a problem.

    Although, since so many carriers are not at sea, why would we need as many jets anyway?

    So I think corruption, waste, fraud, abuse, and incompetence are battling for budget money.

    A serious audit is long overdue.
