WASHINGTON The Trump administration has virtually closed the door on Iraqis who worked as interpreters for the American military, issuing only two U.S. visas to former interpreters last year, according to government statistics obtained by NBC News.

The interpreters have faced threats, abductions and attacks for their association with American forces, and hundreds have been killed by militants since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

1. We'll never get support from native populations again. Broken promises.

Help us and then we'll drop you like a hot potato and let your enemies have you.
