On Tuesday morning he tweeted —
Heading to Missouri to be with many of my great friends. VFW here we come!

“We’re destroying the blood thirsty killers known as ISIS — almost gone. We’re calling the threat by its real name: It’s called radical Islamic terrorism, it is what it is. You have to know your enemy before you defeat your enemy,” he added.
Trump’s speech on Tuesday comes shortly after the VFW issued a statement praising his efforts with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
America has finally been blessed with a president that values his veterans — and in return, our veterans appreciate his strong diplomatic efforts.
