President Trump slams 'very rigid' Pelosi, reveals troops' mission in Iraq

From Fox News:

FOX NEWS - In a wide-ranging, three-part interview set to broadcast Sunday, President Trump revealed that U.S. troops will remain in Iraq to "watch Iran," and charged that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "very bad for our country" and "doesn't mind human trafficking" at the border, according to an advance transcript of his remarks.

Speaking ahead of Super Bowl LIII at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., Trump also told CBS News' "Face the Nation" that the NFL's ratings have been "terrific" lately because the players " haven't been kneeling"  during the national anthem -- and that "a lot of people in the NFL have been calling and thanking me" for spearheading the passage of a sweeping, bipartisan criminal justice reform bill last year.

A social media campaign has urged the Super Bowl halftime performers, including the pop band Maroon 5, to kneel on-stage.

The president's comments offered a possible preview of his upcoming  State of the Union address in the House of Representatives, which is now scheduled for Feb. 5 after it was delayed amid a spat between the White House and Pelosi during the partial federal government shutdown .
