Trump says he does not see expanded role for U.S. in Libya beyond ISIS fight
Well, this is good news.
Speaking at a joint news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Trump bluntly declared that he saw “no role” for the United States in stabilizing Libya, except in fighting the Islamic State.
“I do not see a role in Libya,” Trump said, just seconds after Gentiloni said his country hoped to see more U.S. engagement there. “I think the United States has right now enough roles. We’re in a role everywhere. So I do not see that.”
“I do see a role in getting rid of ISIS. We’re being very effective in that regard,” he added.
