White House: Trump wants U.S. forces in Syria to come home as quickly as possible
Reuters, Apr 15, 2018

WASHINGTON (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.

"January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again."  --  President Donald J. Trump

Alright, good. We will see how this goes.

 Bring them home from Niger and anywhere else in Africa,  plus from the Balkans, while we're at it.
