Fernández: Trump withdraws troops from Iraq to win elections

"Withdrawing US troops from some countries is a gesture that US President Donald Trump tries to use to satisfy the US public, in order to win in the elections," said international affairs analyst Luis José Fernández in an interview granted this Sunday to the HispanTV network.

Fernández has emphasized that, especially at this time when Trump is behind his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, when it comes to voting intention, the US president is trying to show that he does keep his promises.

On January 5, the Iraqi Parliament passed a resolution demanding the immediate and complete withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq. This resolution was passed after the US assassinated Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Guardians of the Islamic Revolution Corps (IRGC), and the deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (Al -Hashad Al-Shabi, in Arabic), Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, on January 3 in Baghdad (Iraqi capital).
