President Trump Reiterates Support of Lebanon and Fight Against Hezbollah

President Trump Reiterates Support of Lebanon and Fight Against Hezbollah Read Transcript


Today at the White House, the president

welcomed the prime minister of Lebanon.

Now, before that joint address and speech here in the Rose

Garden, the White House issued a statement

saying the two were coming together

to address areas of mutual concern, namely

refugees and Hezbollah.

So there's a lot riding on this visit.

The White House is proposing cuts to the State Department.

At the same time, Lebanon has benefited from $80 million

of US support.

The growing rise of Hezbollah inside Lebanon

has increased tension with their neighbors to the south, Israel.

Israeli leaders say Lebanon will pay the price if Hezbollah

starts a conflict with Israel.

Hezbollah has more than 100,000 missiles pointed at Israel.

Lebanon has also received thousands of refugees

from the Syrian crisis.

President Trump addressed the US's role today.

The United States military has been

proud to help in that fight, and will continue to do so.

Hezbollah is a menace to the Lebanese state,

the Lebanese people, and the entire region.

The group continues to increase its military arsenal, which

threatens to start yet another conflict with Israel.

AMBER STRONG: While the address was supposed

to focus on foreign relations, White House intrigue stories

like the growing tension between President Trump and Attorney

General Sessions took up some of today's conversation.

I want the attorney general to be much tougher on the leaks

from intelligence agencies, which

are leaking like rarely have they ever leaked before,

at a very important level.

These are intelligence agencies.

We cannot have that happen.

You know many of my views in addition to that,

but I think that's one of the very important things

that they have to get on with.

I told you before, I'm very disappointed

with the attorney general.

But we will see what happens.

Time will tell.

Time will tell.

Now, early this morning, the president

took to Twitter to urge Congress to take action on health care

and to address what he calls Attorney General Jeff Sessions'

quote weak position on Hillary Clinton.

Amber C Strong, CBN News, at the White House.
