Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, visited Al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar on Sunday to personally thank the troops.
While traveling to the Middle East for the first time in two years, Trump stopped at the airbase located in Doha, Qatar – the largest U.S. military base in the Middle East, hosting 10,000 U.S. personnel along with Qatar and U.K. forces.
Trump posted photos of her visit, saying, “It was an honor to visit Al-Udeid Air Base, the largest U.S. military installation in the Middle East, to thank the brave men and women who keep America safe.”
“Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win! God bless you and Merry Christmas!” she added.
Trump was accompanied by Brian Hook, who is the U.S. envoy to Iran, the Washington Examiner reported.
Trump met with U.S. troops and female Qatari pilots while on base, in addition to taking a tour of the base.
Trump was in the Middle East to speak at the two-day Doha Forum to discuss her women’s economic empowerment movement.
Her goal was to “participate in the forum´s programming and meet with government and business leaders regarding key economic objectives,” a U.S. Treasury statement said, according to Daily Mail.
