Top Iraqi cleric rejects Trump's plan for U.S. troops in Iraq

Trump told coalition members meeting at the State Department that while "remnants" of the group were still risky, he was determined to bring U.S. troops home.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also slammed the USA on Wednesday, tweeting that its "hostility has led it to support dictators, butchers & extremists, who've only brought ruin to our region". "We are now making it clear to China that after years of targeting our industries, and stealing our intellectual property, the theft of American jobs and wealth has come to an end", Trump said in his annual State of the Union address.

"Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russian Federation in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities", he said.

The October 2018 shooting, in which 11 people died, was the worst attack on Jews in American history. It is nonetheless believed to be the biggest Jewish population in the Middle East outside Israel.

US President Donald Trump called for curbs on certain types of abortions in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, citing recent legislation and debates in Virginia and NY on later-term abortions.

United States officials have said IS has lost 99.5 per cent of its territory in the region and holds on to less than five square kilometres in Syria near the Middle Euphrates River Valley. Qais al-Khazali, head of Asaib Ahl al-Haq, or League of the Righteous, also suggested USA troops may eventually be driven out by force if they do not yield to the will of the Iraqi people.

He also discussed the ongoing efforts for a peaceful reconciliation in Afghanistan.

Trump is expected to discuss foreign policy in the address to a joint session of Congress, including declaring the ISIL militant group all but defeated.

"If they are slaughtered by the Turks, it will be a stain on the honor of this country that will persist" and hurt our ability to attract allies in future, King said. I want to wait for the official word.

President Trump said, "To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal".

Meanwhile, South Korea applauded Trump's announcement during his speech that he will attend a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam later this month. The Republican president appeared in the House chamber just weeks after his demand for $5.7 billion in funding for the US-Mexico border wall triggered a historic 35-day partial government shutdown that more than half of Americans blamed him for, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling. His remarks came as Democrats who now control the House planned a series of probes into the Trump administration and a special prosecutor investigates Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

"I think the administration has sent some really mixed messages about the terms of the USA withdrawal from Syria", she said.

On Wednesday, Hakim, apparently responding to Trump's comment, called on countries to show full "respect for the territorial integrity of Iraq and for all operations to take place with the knowledge of Iraq, and in consultations with Iraqi security forces".

The US President thanked the UAE, Germany and Saudi Arabia for their increased financial commitments as part of the coalition. He said, "Sir, one week".
