US will abandon any ambitions for nation-building or spreading democracy in the Middle East.
Even as the prospects of Donald Trump becoming the next president of the United States is getting bleak day-by-day, the republican presidential candidate is set to lay down a strategy to defeat ISIS and other terror groups, which he had earlier said was founded by Obama.
According to reports, Trump is set to lay out his anti-ISIS strategy on Monday as he believesÂ the attempts made by the Obama administration to counter the ISIS failed miserably.
CNN reported that Trump will also introduce his method of keeping the US safe from terror attacks, including banning people from entering the country. Earlier, Trump had proposed banning all Muslims from entering the country, but, in the new circumstance where more people, especially women are dissociating with him, he might tame his words a bit.
It seems like Trump will propose to prevent the entry of people whose identity Washington cannot adequately verify, and increase cooperation with willing Middle Eastern allies.
Trump is also set to make it clear that the US will abandon any attempts for nation-building or spread democracy in the Middle East.
“We can’t always choose our friends, but we know that we have to fight our enemies. We are going to work with anyone in the Middle East who is in agreement with us that ISIS needs to be extinguished,” the senior campaign adviser said.
The call to work with the Muslim allies to counter terrorism comes in the backdrop of rising criticism and disapproval for Trump from Muslims in the US and abroad after Trumpâ€™s controversial statement â€œa total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the USâ€.
