Trump finally musters up enough cajones to take a trip into a war zone (Afghanistan) to hand out some turkey to the troops at Thanksgiving. I guess he needed to suck up to the military after recent events.
Why would he need to suck up to the military? His support among the troops is strong!
President Donald Trumpís approval rating among active-duty military personnel has slipped over the last two years...About 44 percent of troops had a favorable view of Trumpís presidency, the poll showed, compared to 43 percent who disapproved....a gradual decline in troopsí support of Trump since he was elected in fall 2016, when a similar Military Times poll showed that 46 percent of troops approved of Trump compared to 37 percent who disapproved. That nine-point margin of support now appears gone.


(And that poll was done last year, before the whole "Withdraw from Syria/protect the oil" policy was enacted. )
