(FOX NEWS) – President Trump and the first lady appeared in Iraq on Wednesday for a surprise visit with troops and senior military leadership at Al Asad Air Base, where he said he has “no plans at all” to remove any of the 5,000 U.S. troops from the country.

Trump’s visit — his first as president to a combat zone — comes on the heels of his announcement about pulling troops out of Syria and the rumored removal of thousands of troops in Afghanistan.

The president was joined at the air base by National Security Adviser John Bolton for meetings with political and military leaders. The president spent around three hours on the ground with First Lady Melania Trump vesting U.S. Troops, according to Reuters.

“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted.
