Trump Abandons Traditional Press Conference – Shows America EXACTLY Where His Heart Is [VIDEO]

President Trump ended his trip abroad in grand fashion… he snubbed the media and instead addressed our troops in Italy. They loved him for it. He spoke of the noble sacrifices of American troops and told the story of Medal of Honor recipient John Joseph Parle, a US Naval Reserve officer who died after a heroic act during the Allied Invasion of Sicily. It was purely American and extremely heartfelt and patriotic. It was perfect for Memorial Day.

President Trump said he could think of no better way to end a winning trip than to spend time with our military. He set out to bring countries together in the fight to take down radical Islam and the trip was a massive success in the Middle East. Trump made a point of telling terrorists out there that every time they take an innocent life, it only strengthens our resolve to annihilate them. We want the terrorists dead and taking a permanent dirt nap. As Mad Dog Mattis said when asked, “What keeps you awake at night?” Mattis gave the quote of the century: “Nothing,” he replied, completely stone-faced. “I keep other people awake at night.” And that is true for every terrorist on the planet.

President Donald Trump ignored the custom of holding a press conference to conclude his trip abroad, choosing, instead, to celebrate his successful trip with a speech to the troops.

“I think we hit a home run no matter where we are,” Trump said as he spoke to members of the military at a Naval Air Station in Sigonella, Italy, celebrating his first trip overseas as president. “I can think of no better way to conclude our first foreign trip than to spend the time with you right here.”

Trump indicated that his biggest goal of the trip was to rally the world against radical Islamic terrorism.

“We traveled the world to form a partnership among nations devoted to the tasks of eradicating terrorism that plagues our planet,” he said.

The president recalled the terrorist attacks in Manchester and Egypt that targeted innocent women and children as well as a suicide bombing in Indonesia that killed three police officers. He said that attacks would only steel the resolve of world leaders to fight terrorism.

“Together, civilized nations will crush the terrorists, block their funding, strip them of their territory, and drive them out of this earth,” Trump said.

President Trump arrived on the base to a raucous crowd and shouts of “USA! USA! USA!” as the Air Force One movie soundtrack played in the background. Now that’s a warm welcome from our warriors! First Lady Melania Trump introduced her husband, calling the journey an “incredible trip.” “My husband worked very hard on behalf of our country, and I’m very proud of him,” she said. She was all class and elegance while addressing the troops. President Trump emphasized peace through strength once again and it was the quintessential American moment.

The Trumps have now returned to DC and are recognizing Memorial Day today. It’s a solemn day here in America. But we now have a leader that recognizes the importance of the day and who respects and honors our military. Far more than the press as can be seen in Italy and rightfully so.
