Trump's defense chief says in Iraq: We're not here for your oil

 

February 21, 2017



BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The U.S. military is "not in Iraq to seize anybody's oil," Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said, distancing himself from remarks by President Donald Trump, as he held talks with Iraqi leaders on Monday, Feb. 20.

Mattis was the highest-ranking Trump administration official to visit Iraq since Trump irked Iraqis with a temporary ban on travel to the United States and for saying America should have seized Iraq's oil after toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003.
