WHAT SHOULD BE OUR ROLE IN LIBYA? Trump Nails It

Trump’s foreign policy is certainly different than that of weak-kneed Obama. Peace through strength, and not a lot of half baked, half in, half out strategy that puts our troops in danger.

It’s simple. Get in. Eliminate ISIS. Get out.

Independent Journal Review reports:

President Donald Trump told reporters that he does not anticipate the United States having a role in the stabilization of Libya, during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni at the White House Thursday.

Stabilization in Libya is a top priority for Italy, especially following a recent agreement to stop the flow of Libyan migrants into their country.

“We need a stable and unified Libya,” Gentiloni said, adding that “the U.S.’s role in [stabilizing the country] is very critical.”

Right after Gentiloni’s answer, Trump countered the prime minister’s assessment with his own response:

“I do not see a role in Libya. I think the United States, right now, has enough roles. We’re in a role everywhere. […] I do see a role in getting rid of ISIS.”

Further, the president added:

“We are effectively ridding the world of ISIS. I see that as a primary role and that’s what we’re going to do, whether it’s in Iraq or in Libya, or anywhere else. And that role will come to an end at a certain point.”

A clear and guided vision before we engage is a breath of fresh air in foreign policy.
