Iraqi lawmakers are pushing back against U.S. plans to bulk up American troop numbers in the country after comments from President Donald Trump. In a Sunday interview with CBS News, Trump revealed that while he will continue withdrawing troops from Syria, the United States will strengthen its military presence in Iraq to oppose Islamic State (ISIS) from there. He said an enhanced presence would also allow the U.S. military to monitor terrorism concerns in neighboring Iran.
