    The foreign policy mistakes the United States committed in Iraq, Syria, Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East have thrown the region into chaos, US Presidential candidate Donald Trump said during a speech on Wednesday.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) – Trump added that the United States went "from mistakes in Iraq, to Egypt, to Libya, to President [Barack] Obama’s lying the sand in Syria. Each of these actions have helped to throw the region into chaos and give ISIS [Daesh] the space it needs to grow and prosper."

    "As time went on, our foreign policy began to make less and less sense," Trump stated. "Logic was replaced with foolishness and arrogance, which led to one foreign policy disaster after another, they just kept coming and coming.

    The US government has done nothing to help Christians of the Middle East who faced persecution, Donald Trump said.

    "We left Christians subject to intense persecution and even genocide," Trump stated in his foreign policy address. "We have done nothing to help the Christians, and we should always be ashamed for that."
