Trump Wants to Pull American Troops Out of Syria "Very Quickly"

Trump Wants to Pull American Troops Out of Syria

Speaking alongside Votel, Brett McGurk, the State Department's special envoy to the global coalition to defeat ISIS, agreed that "ISIS is not finished".

"I want to get out".

As Islamic State loses most of its self-proclaimed caliphate, the U.S.is losing its only professed reason to keep troops on the ground and send air strikes into the maelstrom in Syria. "So we're going to be making a decision", Trump said.

The "America First" president's lines about defeating IS draw cheers from his base, as do promises to bring troops home, and he has shown a growing eagerness to take counter-orthodox views on a range of issues including trade and U.S. border security.

At a news conference on Tuesday with leaders from the Baltic states, meanwhile, Trump said that he wants to pull us forces out of Syria.

U.S. Central Command head Gen. Joseph Votel said "well over 90 percent" of land once held by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has been liberated, particularly in the north and eastern portions of the country, but that the military must maintain its presence there.

A convoy of US troops drive on a road leading to the tense front line with Turkish-backed fighters, in Manbij, north Syria, March 31, 2018.

"Of course there is a military role in this, certainly in the stabilization phase", he added.

Trump expanded on that theme Tuesday, saying Saudi Arabian officials have encouraged a continued USA presence but that he's told them, "If you want us to stay, maybe you" will have to pay the USA for the troops.

Last week, the president had raised eyebrows when he declared: "We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon".

About 2,000 USA troops are in Syria to back Kurdish fighters against ISIS.

While Trump promises to hash out the U.S.'s future in Syria, his administration's policy remains muddled and 2,000 American troops are still stationed there. The three men are the top military, diplomatic, and development officials responsible for the campaign against the Islamic State.

Yet Iran and its ally, the militant group Hezbollah, will gain in influence if Assad consolidates his victory in Syria.

"We still suffer from Syria", Yasseen said.

"Seven trillion dollars in the Middle East over the last 17 years, we get nothing out of it ... except death and destruction".

"We are in Syria to fight ISIS".

Trump said he would consult with allies and suggested that Saudi Arabia might pay the bill for USA troops being there.
