Trump's Tweet Reveals Identities and Location of Navy Seals in Iraq

Trump says the work of U.S. forces is complete and regional forces will ensure ISIL remains dismantled.

Speaking to troops at Al Asad Air Base, the President said that he had no plans to pull out troops from Iraq, which he said the U.S. could use as a staging ground in the heart of the Middle East from which to combat Iran, or re-enter Syria.

On Sunday, Trump said in a tweet that he had spoken with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan about a "slow and highly coordinated" withdrawal of the USA troops, suggesting that he might slow down the process after the barrage of criticism. At one point, Trump falsely claimed he was giving troops their first pay rise in years. The Military Times reported that Trump's initial pay raise proposal was for 2.1 percent, but lawmakers approved the higher 2.4 percent mark. "The US can not continue to be the policeman of the world".

Trump also greeted troops at the Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany during a refueling stop.

"'Cause it's been a long time, it's been more than 10 years".

"We have secured a record increase to our military budget, and we are purchasing all of this great equipment - $700 billion a year ago; $716 billion - with a "b", with a 'b, '" Trump said. The two major blocs in the Iraqi parliament denounced the visit and called for an emergency session to vote on expelling USA troops from the country.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Abdul-Mahdi accepted Trump's invitation to the White House during their call, though the prime minister's office has so far refused to confirm that. "George in one session says 'it's not a lie if you believe it.'".

It's the holiday season and tinsel town was smeared in the colours of the festival on the eve of Christmas. But the real shock came on Saturday and Sunday when collections failed to grow despite Khan's presence.

On social media, there also were defenders of the troops with Trump hats and signs, who argued there is nothing inherently partisan about the "Make America Great Again" slogan.

"Look, it's a good thing that the president went to Iraq", he said.

According to the US officials, a major consideration for USA military planners crafting the Syria withdrawal plan has been the protection of American forces as they execute the withdrawal. We'll come to an agreement and make sure everyone gets paid, the 42,000 members of the Coast Guard who are not getting paid.

He promised a "strong, deliberate and orderly withdrawal" of forces from Syria.

Although the event was not an official Trump re-election campaign event, the President did declare his candidacy for re-election in 2020 soon after his inauguration.

Some US judges are pushing back against Justice Department efforts to halt lawsuits involving the Trump administration during the partial government shutdown.

He led two uprisings against USA forces in Iraq and is one of the few Shiite leaders to also distance himself from Iran.
