The Iraqi politician, the head of the Iraqi Umma Party, Mithal al-Alusi, on Thursday (December 27, 2018) welcomed US President Trump’s visit to Iraq, stressing that all those who reject the visit are followers of Iran and do not represent Iraq and the Iraqis.

“In the name of all the free Iraqis, we welcome Trump’s visit and we would like to have a bigger and bigger visit, to meet Trump where the real Iraqis are, not those who lost their identity,” Alusi said in an interview with Baghdad Today.

“This is a natural visit to the head of a major state we have agreements with the knowledge of the Iraqi government,” he said, adding that “such visits took place during the time of the governments of Nuri al-Maliki and Ibrahim Jaafari.”

The head of the Iraqi Umma Party said that “it was the first of the deputies and forces opposed to the visit to protest against corruption and thefts of oil and drugs that enter Iraq, and was the first to explain how Kassim Suleimani daily enter Iraq and Iran experts of the Revolutionary Guard,” stressing that “what We hear from the voices of chants against Trump’s visit do not represent the Iraqis, they represent the Iranian regime. ”

On Wednesday evening, the US president visited the Ain al-Assad military base in Anbar, west of Iraq, on a surprise visit to congratulate US troops there on Christmas.

The three-hour visit provoked angry reactions because of the lack of any Iraqi official among the forces in the popular crowd and the Iraqi political forces, which saw it as an excess of sovereignty and diplomatic norms, and called for “the expulsion of American forces.”

Trump confirmed during the visit that he did not intend to “issue a decision to withdraw US forces from Iraq, similar to his decision on Syria,” noting that “it is possible to carry out operations in Syria from Iraq if needed.”

At the same time, the Information Office of the Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, said that “the US authorities have informed the Iraqi authorities of Trump’s desire to conduct the visit,” noting that “divergent views on the meeting” prevented the contract between Trump and Abdul-Mahdi,
