Donald Trump appeared to threaten Iraq into rethinking their close alliance with Iran one day after he ordered the assassination of the top General in Iran. He ranted about the amount of money the United States has spent in Iraq, "on top of all else we have done for them" throughout nearly two decades of never-ending war and strife in the country while ranting about all "we have done for them." Donald then went on to lament the close strategic relationship Iraq now has with Iran before eerily threatening that "it will never end well!"

Quote | He appeared oblivious to the fact we destroyed their country over two decades of war.

The United States has paid Iraq Billions of Dollars a year, for many years. That is on top of all else we have done for them. The people of Iraq don’t want to be dominated & controlled by Iran, but ultimately, that is their choice. Over the last 15 years, Iran has gained more and more control over Iraq, and the people of Iraq are not happy with that. It will never end well!
