Trump: I don’t see a role for the U.S. in Libya

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he does not see the U.S. playing a role in ongoing conflict in Libya, though he expects to fight the Islamic State terrorist group’s presence in the country.

“I do not see a role in Libya,” Trump said, taking questions from reporters in the White House at a joint news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. “I think the United States has right now enough roles. We’re in a role everywhere.”

“I do see a role in getting rid of ISIS,” he said, adding, “We are effectively ridding the world of ISIS. I see that as a primary role, and that’s what we are going to do whether it’s in Iraq or in Libya or anywhere else.”
