Trump Breaks Tradition Of Visiting Troops On Xmas

Talking Points Memo reports:

President Barack Obama visited troops on a base in Hawaii every year of his presidency.  Trump skipped the tradition this year, adding yet another strike to his 2018 record.

He garnered backlash earlier this year when he cancelled appearances at a burial site in Paris and Arlington National Cemetery in quick succession.

He has also yet to visit an active combat zone, something both Bush and Obama had done by this point in their presidencies.
