President Donald Trump has told his national security team that he is willing to keep US troops in Syria in the short-term, but said he wants US troops to exit soon, a senior administration official told CNN. Trump has said publicly that he’s ready to withdraw troops from Syria, but his top military commanders have argued the battle against ISIS is not yet complete.
Trump said during the session on Tuesday that he wants to defeat ISIS but that the costs of stabilizing Syria must be borne by regional players. Trump did not say what the decision was nor what the timeline is for an announcement.
