Trump; We have defeated ISIS, no reason for being there anymore.
US President Donald Trump has declared that the United States will withdraw from war-torn Syria “very soon”, without offering any other details.
“We will be coming out of Syria very soon. Let the other people take care of it now,” Trump twitted today.
Trump earlier complained that the US spends trillions of dollars in the Middle East, but get “nothing” in return.
He did not say whether the withdrawal also includes the US halting its air operation against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) fighters, who remain in Syria.
