Trump: Israel is one reason we're staying in the Middle East
US President Donald Trump hinted on Tuesday that Israel is one of the reasons that he is keeping US military forces in the Middle East.
Trump’s comments were made in an interview with The Washington Post and came in response to a broader question on US-Saudi relations in the wake of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“It’s very important to have Saudi Arabia as an ally, if we’re going to stay in that part of the world. Now, are we going to stay in that part of the world? One reason to is Israel,” said Trump, who added that “Oil is becoming less and less of a reason because we’re producing more oil now than we’ve ever produced. So, you know, all of a sudden it gets to a point where you don’t have to stay there.”
Trump also justified US relations with Saudi Arabia, despite the murder which has been blamed on the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman, saying “it’s a rough part of the world. It’s a dangerous, rough part of the world. But they’ve been a great ally. Without them, Israel would be in a lot more trouble. We need to have a counterbalance to Iran.”
