Trump: US not to leave Iraq until it pays for airbase

The United States President Donald Trump said that the US will not leave Iraq if Baghdad doesn’t pay for the Balad military base held by the US forces. He stated the base cost "billions of dollars to build. Long before my time, We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it. We will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame."

US Department of State Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus stated on Sunday that the US is "disappointed" by the decision of the Iraqi parliament who decided to take the US troops out of the country.
