According to him, Washington is returning to the fundamental principles according to which the task of a soldier is to defend and resolutely defend the United States from external enemies.
“We are ending the era of endless wars,” the US leader said, speaking to graduates of the West Point Military Academy in New York State.
Trump said that “a clear view of protecting America’s vital interests has returned to its place.” He added that it is not the responsibility of US troops to resolve “ancient conflicts in distant countries that many people have not even heard.”
“We are not the police of this world. But let our enemies know that if our people are threatened, we will never, ever hesitate. And when we fight, from now on, we will fight only to win,” the President concluded.
It is noteworthy that a few days ago, trump informed Congress about the preservation of the American military in some countries where past American presidents introduced the contingent.
In addition to Afghanistan, where the US campaign stretches for almost 19 years, we are talking about countries such as Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, the Philippines, the Arabian Peninsula, Kosovo, East Africa, the Lake Chad basin and the Sahel region.
