White House: Trump wants U.S. forces in Syria to come home as quickly as possible

Source: MSN/Reuters

President Donald Trump still wants U.S. forces in Syria to return home as soon as possible, the White House said on Sunday, after French President Emmanuel Macron said he had convinced Trump to keep a U.S. presence there for "the long term."

"The U.S. mission has not changed -- the president has been clear that he wants U.S. forces to come home as quickly as possible," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

"We are determined to completely crush ISIS and create the conditions that will prevent its return. In addition we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region," she said.

Um, didn't Assad start gassing rebels just a week ago when Trump suddenly announced that he was leaving Syria to Assad and the Russians? Talk about red light, green light.

3. What if Assad gassed again -- but this time, he was gassing ISIS.

Would Trump bomb Damascus? Or wherever Assad was?

4. Why the rush, Donnie?

Time to leave the field complete to the Russkies and Assad? Putin's orders I suppose. Oh, and what about the Kurds? You know, our erstwhile allies in the fight against Isis. So we leave them between the hammer and anvil of Syria and Turkey. Nice. Thanks for showing all similar friends and allies that the US cannot be trusted and will screw you over in a heart beat if the situation warrants.
