President Donald Trump surprised U.S. troops in Afghanistan by serving them dinner to celebrate Thanksgiving. Trump arrived in Afghanistan after a 13-hour flight on Thursday. It was his first visit to the war torn country.

Trump's secret trip caught most of the news media off guard. Reporters in the press pool were not allowed to announce where they were going. Newsweek magazine erroneously described the President as spending Thanksgiving Day tweeting at his golf course.

After three and a half hours on the ground in Afghanistan, Trump boarded Air Force One for a long flight back to Florida.

The President looked exhausted after landing in Florida. According to published reports, Trump, 73, will spend the rest of the holiday weekend with his family at his Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach.

"Just returned to the United States after spending a GREAT Thanksgiving with our Courageous American Warriors in Afghanistan!," he tweeted on Friday.

Trump was ridiculed on Twitter.com after he tweeted a meme of his head Photoshopped on Rocky Balboa's body. Rocky Balboa is a beloved fictitious boxing champion played by actor Sylvester Stallone in the 'Rocky' film franchise.

Trump tweeted the meme after getting a clean bill of health from his personal physician. There was talk that Trump suffered a mild heart attack last weekend, but the rumors were unfounded.

The meme was a hit among pro-democracy protesters who held up copies of Trump's tweet during a Thanksgiving Day rally at Edinburgh Place in Hong Kong, China.

The demonstration was their way of saying thank you to the United States after Trump signed legislation supporting the Hong Kong protesters. The new legislation requires annual reviews of Hong Kong's rights and freedoms.

China expressed disappointment in the new legislation.

If you live near an air reserve base or an Army base, you've probably noticed an increase in activity after President Trump hinted at impending war with North Korea.

During a dinner with senior military leaders and their spouses on Thursday, Trump summoned the press to the State Dining Room and told them the moment was the "calm before the storm.
