Well, looks like he is following through with his word!
Even the Prime Minister of Iraq has faith in Trump’s plan.
Haider al-Abadi, Iraqi Prime Minister who has met with both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama, told “Fox News Sunday” that he noticed a big difference in how Trump and Obama approached the major issue.
“President Obama didn’t want to get involved in the first place. He just wanted to just forget Iraq,” al-Abadi said, explaining that there was immense public pressure on the U.S. to help Iraq.
