Trump threatens Iraq with sanctions if US troops are expelled

Trump has threatened severe sanctions against Iraq after its parliament called on US troops to leave the country. ’We have a very extraordinarily expensive airbase that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build... We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,’ Trump said, adding that if Iraq asked US forces to leave, ’we will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever.’

If they ask us to leave, we should leave. The billions have already been spent, and getting the money back would barely make a dent in our debt, so what does it matter? I say we take everything isn't nailed down, and destroy the rest, and leave those poor people to a fate worse than us. Trump is being pretty stupid on this issue.

Very Trump. Sanctions against Iraq is a stupid idea. I know this is a negotiation position but this is a situation where we should be more magnanimous.
