President Trump on Monday said he doesn’t think keeping a limited number of U.S. troops in Syria will be necessary, other than leaving a few troops to secure oil, as he faces backlash for the way he ordered the withdrawal of troops from northern Syria.
Mr. Trump, making the comments in a Cabinet meeting with top White House officials and department secretaries, said troops who have been in Syria will be sent elsewhere before eventually heading home.
The article goes on to state the following:
The president also insisted “you have to look at both ways” in the conflict between the Turks and Kurdish allies, because “plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflict on their borders.” Mr. Trump reiterated his line that the Kurds, who lost thousands of lives in the fight alongside the U.S. against ISIS, are “not angels.”
“I don’t think it’s necessary, other than that we secure the oil,” Pres. Trump says when asked about leaving U.S. troops in Syria.
