US Pledges Extra $140 mln to Lebanon for Syrian Refugees

"In fact, Hezbollah controls the government of which Hariri is prime minister".

On Friday, Hezbollah worked with Syrian forces to push Islamist radicals off the Lebanese border.

"I am not somebody that will stand by and let him get away with what he tried to do", Trump said. "We have generals that don't like to talk; they like to do".

So while it is easy for Trump to view everything through his usual "Them: bad, us: good" lens, in reality, as far as Hariri and Hezbollah are concerned, much like your Facebook relationship status with that ex you still occasionally see, it's complicated.

President Trump himself praised the LAF's role in counterterrorism operations during a press conference with Hariri on Tuesday, indicating that the United States will continue to provide Lebanon with military assistance.

Protests erupt nationwide following Trump's transgender military ban announcement
First, Jenner retweeted a Trump post from June 2016 in which he promised to fight for the LGBT community. Trump's decision is a complete reversal of Obama's ending of the transgender military ban past year .

During a news conference with Lebanese President Saad al-Hariri in the White House's Rose Garden on Tuesday, Mr Trump was asked about his position on the Shia group.

"Additional bills if they are to come, we believe that it's not necessary. but if they want to issue these bills, we need to protect Lebanon from any miswording in the bill", Hariri told reporters. The jihadists have spilled over into the country from neighboring Syria.

Trump accused Hezbollah and Iran of heightening the humanitarian disaster in Syria.

Earlier this month, the United States shut the door on refugees, as the country reached the limit set by the president, and Trump has sought to target Syrian refugees in particular. "With the support of Iran, the organisation is also fuelling humanitarian catastrophe in Syria".

"America's assistance can help ensure that the Lebanese army is the only defender Lebanon needs".

He wouldn't commit to three pitches out of the strike zone and then fouled off three straight pitches with the count full. Mike Zunino bailed his starter out with a solo homer off of Heath Hembree to start the seventh to tie the game at 4-4.

He also expressed optimism about security cooperation with Lebanon but did not specify what level of support the USA would be providing.

Officials in Lebanon have raised concerns that USA efforts to widen sanctions on Hezbollah could damage the banking industry because of the group's widespread influence in their country.

Trump responded, "We will do that".

Despite Hariri's concerns, Gebeily downplayed the risk that the legislation could destabilize Iran's banking industry, noting that the impact from the first round of Hezbollah sanctions in 2015 "was really nil".

Trump said that had former president Barack Obama enforced his red line and taken action against Syria when Bashar Assad used chemical weapons in 2013, "I don't believe you'd have Russian Federation and I don't believe you'd have Iran to anywhere near the extent, and maybe not at all, in Syria today".
