PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump has expressed Thanksgiving Day gratitude to members of the armed forces. He spoke with them via conference call from his private club in Palm Beach, Florida. He says they’re “very, very special people” to him and everyone else in the country.
Trump tweeted before the call that he’d be speaking to soldiers in Afghanistan, Iraq, on the USS Monterey, and in Turkey and Bahrain.
He says everyone has been talking about the progress that has been made in Afghanistan in recent months.
He also tweeted that he’ll be visiting a Coast Guard facility in Florida later in the day.
