US does not want to be ‘policeman of the Middle East’: Donald Trump

Washington, Dec 20 (AFP) | Publish Date: 12/20/2018 11:35:27 AM IST

The United States does not want to be the “Policeman” of the Middle East, US President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday, as he defended his controversial decision to pull US forces out of Syria.

“Does the USA want to be the Policeman of the Middle East, getting nothing but spending precious lives and trillions of dollars protecting others who, in almost all cases, do not appreciate what we are doing? Do we want to be there forever? Time for others to finally fight....,” he tweeted.

Trump added: “Russia, Iran, Syria & many others are not happy about the U.S. leaving, despite what the Fake News says, because now they will have to fight ISIS and others, who they hate, without us.”

“I am building by far the most powerful military in the world. ISIS hits us they are doomed!” 

The US president faced intense opposition to his abrupt announcement Wednesday that Islamic State had been defeated in the region, and that he was ordering the 2,000 US troops in Syria to exit the country.
