US won’t be world’s ‘policeman,’ Trump says during Iraq visit

Al-Asad Air Base (Iraq) (AFP) – President Donald Trump used a surprise visit to US troops stationed in Iraq on Wednesday to declare that “the United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world.”

And Trump defended his controversial decision to pull US troops out of neighboring Syria, saying there would be no delays.

“You can’t have any more time. You’ve had enough time,” he said he had told his generals.
