US President Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed his disappointment that Washington had failed to spend $8 trillion on wars in the Middle East.
вЂњWe spent $8 trillion on wars in the Middle East, although we never wanted to win in those wars. And in the end, that money was spent, and people were killed, many young people were seriously injured. The Middle East (turned out to be IF) is less safe, less stable, less protected than before these conflicts began, вЂњhe said, speaking at the White House.
вЂњWe have avoided another costly military intervention that could lead to catastrophic, far-reaching consequences, and thousands of people could die,вЂќ Trump added.
