- A few days ago, a magazine revealed that Trump had called the soldiers killed in the war two years ago as loosers.
- Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Joe Biden asked Donald Trump to publicly apologize
US President Donald Trump may announce the withdrawal of some more US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. In total, about 14,000 American troops are deployed in these two countries. Trump's move is being linked to political considerations and the presidential election due in November.
This is not the reason for the decision
In fact, a few days ago 'Atlantic magazine' claimed that Trump refused to visit the memorial of soldiers martyred in World War I in France two years ago. According to the article, the martyred soldiers were called by Trump as a lost soldier. Subsequently, opposition candidate Biden sought an apology from Trump, accusing former soldiers of insulting him. According to a report by the Aljazeera website, Trump may announce the withdrawal of some troops from Iraq and Afghanistan to make up for the political losses.
Tramp is lagging behind
According to the report, some opinion polls suggest that Trump is now lagging behind Biden. There is an election on 3 November. Therefore, Trump is again trying to gain an edge. Re-construction is taking place after the ISIS collapse in Iraq. American soldiers are helping to fix security, in addition to re-construction. There are about 5200 American soldiers in Iraq. Some people are also demanding the withdrawal of all the soldiers.
Demand also arose in Iraq
Even in Iraq, some people no longer want American soldiers to stay there. For this many rallies have been held in the country. Especially pro-Iran supporters are angry with the US troops. The reason for this is that last year the US killed Iranian General Suleimani in Iraq in a missile attack. At one time, the US Army had 6 bases in Iraq. Now only three are left.
There are about 8600 American troops stationed in Afghanistan. The US Department of Defense wants to increase this number to four thousand.
