On Tuesday, NBC News made an article titled "Trump becomes first president since 2002 not to visit troops at Christmastime". The article stated that Trump failed to visit US troops around Christmas this year. This would break the 15-year streak of presidents visiting US troops around Christmas. Many other news sites followed and made articles similar to this. The articles didn't age very well. Less than 24 hours after NBC posted their article, Donald Trump announced that he visited troops in Al Asad air base in Iraq. This continues the 15-year streak that started in 2002. This also makes it the first time Trump has visited a combat zone during his presidency. After Trump announced that he visited the troops, NBC made a note on their article stating that the information was outdated.
