President Trump orders most U.S. troops out of Somalia

President Trump has ordered the withdrawal of most of the U.S. troops stationed in Somalia, Pentagon officials said Friday.

In a statement, the Pentagon said the U.S. is not “withdrawing or disengaging from Africa.”

“While a change in force posture, this action is not a change in U.S. policy,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “We will continue to degrade violent extremist organizations that could threaten our homeland while ensuring we maintain our strategic advantage in great power competition.”
