‘WELL DONE, MR. PRESIDENT’: “I applaud President Trump’s decision to leave a small contingent of American forces in Syria as part of an international stabilizing force,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, after the president relented and agreed at the urging of Graham and a bipartisan consensus in Congress to keep 200 U.S. troops in Syria past the end of April.
“With this decision, President Trump has decided to follow sound military advice,” said Graham in a statement last night. “For a small fraction of the forces we have had in Syria, we can accomplish our national security objectives. Well done Mr. President.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The White House announced the troops would stay shortly after the president got off the phone with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “A small peacekeeping group of about 200 will remain in Syria for a period of time,” said press secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement. Sanders provided no further details, apart from saying Trump and Erdogan agreed to “continue coordinating on the creation of a potential safe zone” in Syria.
“A safe zone in Syria made up of international forces is the best way to achieve our national security objectives of continuing to contain Iran, ensuring the enduring defeat of ISIS, protecting our Turkish allies, and securing the Turkish border with Syria,” said Graham in his statement.
