'We Will Not Defend Those Who Disrespect Us': Trump Orders Troops Out Of This Country

The Pentagon announced Friday it is withdrawing most U.S. troops out of Somalia on President Donald Trump's orders, maintaining a post-election push by Trump to shrink U.S. involvement in counterterrorism missions abroad.

Without giving details, the Pentagon stated that 'a majority' of U.S. troops and assets in Somalia will be withdrawn in early 2021. There are for now roughly 700 troops in that Horn of Africa nation, training and advising local forces in an extensive fight against the extremist group al-Shabab, an affiliate of al-Qaeda.
