Is there any doubt that our fighting men and women are thrilled to have a commander-in-chief like President Donald Trump?
During a speech at the Miramar Marine Corps Air Station base in California Tuesday, Trump was met with admiration and cheers, no more so than when he made comments savaging his former opponent Hillary Clinton, and former President Barack Obama.
The President touted his plan to make space exploration great again, outlining a goal to send astronauts back to the moon and even looking at developing a mission to Mars, something he claims would never happen had Clinton won in 2016.
“Very soon we are going to Mars,” he announced. “You wouldn’t have been going to Mars if my opponent won. That I can tell you. You wouldn’t even be thinking about it.”
The military members in attendance roared their approval.

Trump, exhibiting his usual candor, wasn’t content with taking a swipe at Hillary. He also took the opportunity to hammer Obama for his inability to combat ISIS, a terrorist organization the Trump Administration has decimated in little over a year.
“ISIS never thought this would happen,” the President declared. “They never got hit like this. We took off the gloves.”
“In one year, we did more damage to ISIS than other administration, a certain other administration, did in many years,” he added. “We took off the gloves.”
Again, the crowd of servicemen and women cheered.
Trump says to cheers that the U.S. "won't let up until ISIS is completely destroyed…They never got hit like this. We took off the gloves…in one year we did more damage to ISIS than…a certain other administration."

Check out Trump’s comments below …
His statements are thoroughly accurate, of course.
The same organization Obama struggled to “contain” for years is the same group military officials said had lost 98 percent of its territory, with a majority of that coming since Trump took control as commander-in-chief.
Is it any wonder the crowd loves this guy?
