Trump had previously threatened to impose tougher sanctions on Iraq than Iran on twitter. He said: we have a huge air base in Iraq, which costs billions of dollars to build. We didnt leave for a while before I took office, and now we wont leave unless Iraq pays off Otherwise, we will impose sanctions on them that they have never experienced before, and our sanctions on Iran seem to be much more moderate. Pompeio, the US Secretary of state, insisted that Iraqis actually enjoyed the US presence. We believe that the Iraqi people want the United States to continue its counter-terrorism operations there, he told Fox News
