The unannounced trip —  Trump’s first to a combat zone as commander in chief — was shrouded in secrecy just days after the president announced the Syria troop-withdrawal plan.

“We’re no longer the suckers, folks,” Trump told service members at the base. “We’re respected again as a nation.”

The president and first lady spent about three hours on the ground in Iraq.
