Trump threatens Iraq with harsh sanctions post parliament vote


Washington, Jan 6 (GCCurrentAffairs) US President Donald Trump has threatened to impose harsh sanctions on Iraq after the war-torn country’s parliament passed a resolution urging the government to expel foreign troops.
“If they do ask us to leave, if we don’t do it in a very friendly basis, we will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One on Sunday.
“We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It costs billions of dollars to build … We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,” he added.
