Speaking from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida Thursday morning, President Trump offered words of gratitude and praise to the country's troops stationed abroad.

"For each of you I know it's hard to be away from home at this time of the year," Trump said via video, touting — on the plus side — the "great economy" the troops will eventually return home to. "When you come back you're going to see with the jobs and companies coming back into our country."

"Now we're working on tax cuts, big fat beautiful tax cuts," he continued. "And hopefully we'll get that and then you're really going to see things happen."

Before thanking the military families, Trump offered this last assurance: "We totally support you. In fact, we love you, we really do." Lauren Hansen
