Mr. Trump has announced that the heroic canine, Conan, who assisted commandoes in bringing down Abu Bakr-al Baghdadi, will visit the White House soon.
Conan was injured during the raid, but has recuperated and returned to service. Conan is a veteran of 50 combat missions.
Mr. Trump is very eager to have Conan come to the White House, but has been told he is already in service to another mission.
A Conan visit is due soon anyway, at which time speculation now runs that Mr. Trump’s admiration for this canine may lead on to advancement in the dog's career.
That is, Mr. Trump is strongly considering Conan as his choice for vice-president in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
“Mr. Pence has done a marvelous job,” Mr. Trump stated at a recent rally. “But he fully agrees that to have an inspirational figure at VEEP such as Conan could be favorable for the Republican Party.”
Mr. Pence has responded that certainly he is willing to give way for the good of the country, and only wishes he could have been in that tunnel to give aid to Conan after al-Baghdadi blew himself up.
Republicans in general are enthused with the President’s new thinking.
Senator Graham has stated: “Well, this is more like the real military and combat spirit we need in this administration.”
He added: “As I understand it, Mr. Trump will consult with Conan on military matters going forward.”
“We will not be having any further namby-pamby about pulling troops out of anywhere, as with what happened in Syria recently.”
“I do believe the President is coming to his senses.”
