After meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi in the Oval Office, President Trump addressed the judge’s ruling, calling the case a “continuation of the witch hunt.”

WASHINGTON, DC – AUGUST 20: U.S. President Donald Trump talks to reporters during a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi in the Oval Office at the White House August 20, 2020 in Washington, DC. One day before the meeting, Trump announced that he will allow UN Security Council sanctions to ‘snap back’ into place against Iran, one of Iraq’s neighbors and closest allies, even as U.S. troop levels in Iraq and Syria would most likely shrink in the coming months.
