President Trump and First Lady Melania left the White House late Christmas evening surprising troops in Iraq the day after Christmas. During the visit to Al Asad Air Base, the President autographed some MAGA hats that troops brought with them to the event.

Like clockwork, CNN published a story accusing the troops of breaking military protocol by engaging in partisan political activities.

The Commander in Chief wrote on Twitter Thursday, “CNN & others within the Fake News Universe were going wild about my signing MAGA hats for our military in Iraq and Germany.”

He added, “If these brave young people ask me to sign their hat, I will sign. Can you imagine my saying NO? We brought or gave NO hats as the Fake News first reported!”

Trump has been routinely criticized for his relationship with U.S. military, including in an article by NBC News that prematurely claimed that Trump would be the “first president since 2002 not to visit troops at Christmastime.” Hours after NBC published that article, it was confirmed that the president was, in fact, making the visit to troops, per the Daily Caller.  (Video Below)

President Trump’s Official Tweet:

CNN asks if troops serving in a war zone on Christmas should be disciplined for having Trump sign ‘Trump 2020’ gear.
