Since two o' clock yesterday our members were on the bus. I was ready to join them for a 2:15 wheels up from here to Andrews Air Force Base to visit our troops. Members were on the bus already, I was about to join them and the President then cancelled the trip.
We had prerogative to travel commercially and we made plans to do that until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially and that endangered us. We weren't gonna go because we had a report from Afghanistan that the President outing our trip had made the scene on the ground much more dangerous.
Perhaps the President's inexperience didn't have him understand that protocol. When the State Department doubles down and says, we don't think you should come because the President's statement has made this dangerous. So it's very irresponsible on the part of President, we'll go again, we'll go another time.
