DONALD Trump has claimed US troops no longer need to be stationed in the Middle East following a historic Israel-United Arab Emirates deal.
UAE and Israel have agreed to establish full diplomatic ties to stop a plan to annex Palestinian territory.
Speaking in the Oval Office on Thursday morning, Trump said the US does "not need to be there anymore, we don’t need oil."
He also slammed the Dems by saying: “So which is easier, dealing with the Democrats or dealing with the Middle East?
"I’ll tell ya, I think the Middle East is more reasonable.”
