Trump is determined to pull US troops from Syria, but refutes specific timeline
By: Leo Shane III  
 

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump pushed back against reports of a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria during a press event on Wednesday, but confirmed that he will be ending American military activity there in near future.

“We’re getting out, we’re getting out smart, and we’re winning,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting, in response to reporters’ questions about U.S. forces there. “I never said we’re getting out tomorrow. We’re getting out of Syria, but we’re getting out very powerfully.”

Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that Trump had amended his plans to withdraw about 2,000 American troops from Syria over the next four months, instead of removing all the troops in just a few weeks.
