President Trump and Melania made their second unannounced visit to U.S. troops abroad around 8pm ET as they visited troops on the German base of Ramstein. The First Couple were on their way back from an army base in Iraq when they stopped to refuel and meet service members carrying MAGA hats who had waited up until 4am local time.

It came hours after Trump 's first visit to a war zone with his three-hour trip to the Al Asad airbase, west of Baghdad. The president delivered a speech to the rank and file, took selfies with the troops and met with military leaders. He did not meet with the country's Prime Minister but spoke to him over the phone.

Speaking to troops, he defended his decision to withdraw from Syria: 'We've knocked them out. We’ve knocked them silly,' he said. 'We're no longer the suckers, folks,' the president said of the decision to start packing up. 'We're respected again as a nation.'

President Trump said he does not plan to withdraw troops from Iraq, however, and could use the site as the home base for future operations in the region. 'The United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world,' he added. 'It’s not fair when the burden is all on us, the United States.'

After arriving back at the White House, top left, the President tweeted: ‘Just returned from visiting our troops in Iraq and Germany. One thing is certain, we have incredible people representing our Country - people that know how to win!’
