Trump Considers First War Zone Visit in Wake of Recent Criticism

HeadlineNov 20, 2018

President Trump is reportedly considering visiting troops in Iraq or Afghanistan. It would be his first visit to a war zone since he took office. Trump has come under fire for skipping recent visits to a cemetery for World War I soldiers in France, followed by a missed visit to the Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day. On Sunday, he attacked former Navy SEAL Admiral William McRaven—who oversaw the U.S. operation that killed Osama bin Laden—calling him a “Hillary Clinton fan” and an “Obama backer” during an interview with Fox News.
