However, Trump did not name the groups that United States officials were in talks with.

Iraqi politicians yesterday hit back at US President Donald Trump after he said that he plans to keep US forces in the country to spy on Iran.

"My administration has acted decisively to confront the world's leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran", Trump said in his address.

The commander said while the original 34,000 square miles of territory held by the terrorist group has been reduced to less than 20 square miles, Daesh still retains leaders, fighters, facilitators and resources.

Salih was responding to comments Trump made in an interview with CBS News" "Face the Nation' in which he said the USA has an "incredible base" in Iraq that he intends to keep, "because I want to be able to watch Iran".

The vote was cast as a prod to Mr. Trump to halt his announced withdrawals from Syria and Afghanistan. "They have the ability of coming back together if we don't", General Joseph Votel, head of the U.S. military's Central Command, told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing hours before the president's public address. However, he hammered on his assertions that illegal immigration was risky for the United States.

"Above all, friend and foe alike must never doubt this Nation's power and will to defend our people".

The comments angered Iraqi politicians and Iranian-backed factions and further added to concerns in Iraq about America's long-term intentions, particularly after it withdraws its troops from Syria.

Earlier Wednesday, Zarif pushed back after Trump appeared to link Iran to the deadly attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue a year ago by an American anti-Semite.

The report comes as Trump is expected to call in Tuesday's speech for conclusions to what he will describe as endless wars, not just in Syria, where about 3,000 US troops are said to be stationed, but also in Afghanistan, where some 14,000 USA military personnel are still deployed. Trump used part of his speech to offer a spirit of compromise, particularly in areas such as lowering the price of prescription drugs and funding a $1 trillion upgrade in U.S. roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

"All I want to do is be able to watch", Trump told "Face the Nation" anchor Margaret Brennan.

"As a candidate for president, I pledged a new approach". Rami Abdurrahman, the head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, says IS still has 4000 to 5000 fighters, many probably hiding out in desert caves and mountains.

"Making the US great means upholding our commitment to global law and asylum seekers", she said. The Republican president appeared in the House chamber just weeks after his demand for $5.7 billion in funding for the US-Mexico border wall triggered a historic 35-day partial government shutdown that more than half of Americans blamed him for, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling.

Lawmakers on the panel expressed skepticism, as Chairman Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., said the Islamic State and A Qaeda are still active in the region, and that "When our military pulls back, Russian Federation pulls forward". Curbing foreign influence has become a hot-button issue in Iraq after parliament elections in May in which Shiite militias backed by Iran made significant gains.

"He was one of the Americans who helped rescue Joshua from that hell on earth", Trump said.
