On Tuesday the Commander-in-Chief decided to “chow-down” with the troops, because “he'd rather eat with the troops than at a fancy restaurant.” Moreover, it made him feel good to be with those young men and woman serving in one of the most dangerous places on earth the Korean Peninsula, and only a few miles from North Korea.

The president along with the first lady visited South Korea on Tuesday as a part of his comprehensive 11-day trip that will also include Japan, China and Vietnam.

The brief 50-second video clip captures the president in the mess hall surrounded by troops at Camp Humphreys, giving one of his inspirational pep-talks, thanking them for their service, and promising them when they return to civilian life that jobs will be plentiful with a robust economy waiting for them.

The president also acknowledged to the troops that he of course had the option of having a fancy lunch with South Korean President Moon Jae-In but decided on sitting down for “Taco Tuesday” and having lunch with the troops, saying: “I had a choice of having a beautiful, very fancy lunch and I said no, I want to eat with the troops and we ate with the troops."

One of the soldiers in attendance was Pvt. Merion Holmes who acknowledged the president’s visit saying “he'd rather eat with the troops than at a fancy restaurant” and that it made “him feel like he cared.”

The brief video clip also captured the thunderous applause that greeted the Commander-in-Chief as he finished his brief speech, which once again reaffirms how committed this president is to the young men and woman who serve in America’s armed forces around the world and in some instances in harm's way.

A far cry no doubt from former President Obama, who actually held a White House Rose Garden ceremony to welcome back deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, moreover praising his service.

Do you believe President Trump has done more to boost the military in just one year, then Obama’s entire two terms in office?
