In his Twitter tweet, US President Donald Trump urged members of the House of Representatives to “vote with their hearts” on that legislation, adding that the United States is reducing its presence in Iraq until the number of its soldiers there has reached only five thousand.

On the other hand, Trump threatened that he would use the veto against any legislation supported by the Democrats that would restrict his military options against Iran.

In separate statements to the White House, sources said that the president may veto both decisions related to ending the 2002 law on the use of force in Iraq and the law restricting military options against Iran.

The US administration had justified the beginning of this month of its use of a drone to target Qasim Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis in Baghdad as coming within the mandate approved in 2002 and confirmed that canceling that mandate will “strengthen the enemies” of the United States. is over
