President Trump surprised US service men and women stationed in Alaska Thursday; speaking with the troops while Air Force One refueled on its return flight from Hanoi, Vietnam following his nuclear summit with Kim Jong Un.
“We’re coming in and we’re landing. And I said, ‘You know what? I can stay in the plane and relax as we fuel up.’ Or I said, ‘How good are they out there?’ Someone said, ‘The best.’ So, I said, ‘Let’s go,’” said the President.

HANNITY: Media Wants TRUMP TO FAIL on the World Stage
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean slammed the mainstream media’s total denial over the President’s foreign policy victories; adding that liberals across the country want Trump to fail on the world stage.
“The mainstream media won’t report this, but the Trump administration is making incredible strides all over Asia,” said Hannity. “In fact, with every passing day the US is getting closer and closer to holding direct talks with North Korea.”
“North Korea’s Rocket Man even dropped a demand that US troops leave the Korean peninsula,” he added. “Instead of reporting the diplomatic progress, your mainstream media twisted those remarks in order to trash the President.”
“It’s time to learn from the failures on the world stage. Appeasement never works, it encourages aggression,” said Sean.
