Senate passes Middle East policy bill rebuking Syria troop withdrawal

  • Pentagon: ISIS will regain ground in Syria when US troops leave and will play troop withdrawal as a 'victory'

Any agreement with Beijing "must include real, structural change to end unfair trade practices", Trump said.

"It should be formally announced, sometime probably next week, that we'll have 100 percent of the caliphate", Trump said during his remarks at a ministerial meeting of US-led coalition member states.

Iran, Trump charged "chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people". The move has received bipartisan pushback from officials and politicians who have feared an ISIS resurgence and growing Iranian influence in the region, but Trump said there were only "remnants" of the group left and, while "remnants can be very risky", he looked forward to welcoming USA troops home.

Trump says that he accelerated the negotiations with the Taliban to reach a political settlement.

When asked by Brennan if he trusted the intelligence given to him, Trump said that he would disagree with reports if they claimed Iran was a "wonderful kindergarten".

Trump last week announced the US withdrawal from a 30-year-old nuclear arms treaty with Russian Federation that banned the countries from possessing certain missiles. "It does have certain components that are still left in it, although they are dispersed and disaggregated they have the capability of coming back together if we don't", Votel said.

"Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russian Federation in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities", he said.

Syria has been engulfed in an armed conflict since 2011, with the government forces fighting numerous terrorist organizations and armed opposition groups.

Unlike his predecessor, Pompeo added, Trump has taken proactive measures to "take down the caliphate" and reduce the risk from ISIS and Russian Federation, the important players there, and is determined to allow the millions of displaced Syrians to return home in addition to reducing violence to help rebuild the country.

In his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, Trump took aim at Iran declaring it a "radical regime" that does "bad, bad things".

Every Senate Democrat who is likely to or who has already declared as running for president in 2020 opposed the resolution, effectively endorsing Trump's foreign policy in the Middle East.

Earlier, US President said during his second State of the Union address that It is time to return US troops deployed in Syria back home. "For this reason, my administration recognised the true capital of Israel - and proudly opened the American Embassy in Jerusalem", Trump said. But in a comment that came shortly after he highlighted an increase in USA military spending, he warned that in the absence of such a deal, "we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far".

US President Donald Trump called for curbs on certain types of abortions in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, citing recent legislation and debates in Virginia and NY on later-term abortions.

As if realizing he was jumping the gun, Trump added, 'But I want to wait for the official word'.

'The United States military, our coalition partners and the Syrian Democratic forces have liberated virtually all of the territory previously held by ISIS in Syria and Iraq,' he said.

'Now, you're always going to have people, they'll be around, ' he said. The nationally televised address gave Trump his biggest opportunity to date to explain why he believes a barrier is needed on the United States southern border with Mexico. He said, "Sir, one week".

Republican Senator Thom Tillis invited the pastor to watch Trump's address.
