Trump LIES to the troops.
Quote:
"You protect us, we are always going to protect you,” Mr Trump said during his visit to Al Asad airbase. “And you just saw that, ’cause you just got one of the biggest pay raises you’ve ever received. You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.”


LINK

The basic pay raises since 2007:

January 2007: 2.2%
April 2007: 0.5%
January 2008: 3.5%
January 2009: 3.9%
January 2010: 3.4%
January 2011: 1.4%
January 2012: 1.6%
January 2013: 1.7%
January 2014: 1.0%
January 2015: 1.0%
January 2016: 1.3%
January 2017: 2.1%
January 2018: 2.4%

Please note that TRUMP HAS LIED AGAIN, this time to his troops. Obama gave them their largest pay raises in these last ten years.

And I bet all the soldiers listening to him remember their raises. They make so little a 1% raise is a big deal.

There is no audience Trump will not lie to, and no subject he will not lie about. The chances any statement he makes will be true are vanishingly small.

Donald Trump just gave me a 2.8% pay raise! Obama was extremely stingy with Social Security COLAs.

They usually raise the Medicare premium about as much as the Social Security raise.
