Trump Asks Soldiers Shocking Question During Lunch

President Donald Trump stopped during his travels through Florida to visit MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. The POTUS went to lunch with a room full of armed service members, as well as senior White House staff members.

The president stopped at the base after his weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The president reunited with First Lady Melania Trump at their residents, which has been dubbed the 'Winter White House', then made the stop in Tampa as he headed home to Washington, DC.

Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines donning fatigues spent time with the president at the U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command. The president was also joined by Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Michael Flynn, Pres. Trump’s national security adviser, among a few other staff members.

During lunch, the president enjoyed some light-hearted chit-chat with the crowd as they dined. The president asked them about the Super Bowl and Tom Brady, and asked about their military career plans. He went around the table asking each member, ‘going to make a career out of it?’

The Commander-in-Chief was briefed by CENTCOM and SOCOM leaders before the luncheon, and after the luncheon he took the podium for a speech.

"Finally, on behalf of the entire nation let me express our gratitude to the military,” Trump said. “We salute the Army, the Marine Corps, the Navy, the Air Force and the Coast Guard. As your president, I have no higher duty than to protect the American people," the president began.

Trump then promised the troops that defending the nation is his top priority, right along with nominating the next Supreme Court Justice. "Each and every one of you is central to that mission. We will ensure that the men and woman of our military have the resources they need to get the job done.”

The president reiterated his support of NATO, with a reminder that allies need to honor their financial obligations, something on which they've been slacking. He also renewed his vow to defeat 'Radical Islamic terrorism'.

“We need strong programs so that people that love us and want to love our country are allowed in. Not people that want to destroy us and destroy our country,” the president concluded.

Before boarding Air Force One, he met with Florida Governor Rick Scott.
