US President said, “If they do ask us to leave, we don’t do it in a friendly basis.”

Trump added, “We will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before ever. It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame…If there’s any hostility, that they do anything we think is inappropriate, we are going to put sanctions on Iraq, very big sanctions on Iraq.”
