Senate passes Middle East policy bill rebuking Syria troop withdrawal

"In Afghanistan and Iraq, almost 7,000 American heroes have given their lives", he said. "In Afghanistan and Iraq, almost 7,000 American heroes have given their lives", said Trump, while explaining why he wants to bring his troops home.

"In Afghanistan, my administration is holding constructive talks with a number of Afghan groups, including the Taliban", he announced. "With one voice, we must confront this hatred anywhere and everywhere it occurs", Trump said.

Despite US President Donald Trump declaring "mission accomplished" in December, Pompeo said the troop withdrawal was "essentially a tactical change. not a change in the mission". "Today, we have liberated virtually all of that territory from the grip of these bloodthirsty killers".

During Wednesday's meeting, Trump did not back down his determination to bring the troops home: "We look forward to giving our courageous warriors in Syria a warm welcome home".

Trump announced details of a second meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, outlining a summit on Feb 27 and 28 in Vietnam.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday told the Ministers of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS that the Islamic State will be "100 percent" defeated sometime next week.

His rhetoric toward Iran was much stronger, remaining consistent with the tone he has struck since before becoming president when he was strongly critical of the worldwide agreement that limited Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The Senate backed the Strengthening America's Security in the Middle East Act by a lopsided 77-23 on Tuesday, hours before Trump was to deliver his annual State of the Union speech discussing his policies for the year. "We've beaten them and we've beaten them badly".

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.

He also took another swipe at the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Opponents included every senator considering a 2020 presidential run, and four Republicans, who said US foreign policy needs a rethink. He also reaffirmed his determination to pull out roughly 2,000 United States troops from Syria.

"While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russian Federation repeatedly violated its terms".

He said he was willing to negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others.

Kurdish lawmaker Sarkawt Shams tweeted that the mission of USA troops in Iraq was "to help Iraqi security forces against terrorism, not "watching" others".

Trump said that the United States would remain "very, very tough" and encouraged efforts, including financial support, from other countries.

The country has seen massive protests ahead of and following President Nicolas Maduro's re-election past year in a vote the opposition called a sham.

However, military generals, intelligence chiefs and members of the president's Republican Party warned against an IS resurgence in the war-torn country. Russian Federation and China are among the governments insisting Maduro remains president. The alleged attacker bought into the notion that migrants from Mexico pose a national security threat, a theme also favored by Trump, who devoted much of his speech Tuesday night to securing the border.

"The government of Iraq understands the relationship, the view that we have on Iran and understands our concerns with Iran", Votel said.

The IG report's warnings about ISIS's remaining strength mirror a worldwide threat assessment presented on January 29 to the Senate Intelligence Committee by Coats and other senior us intelligence chiefs.
