Trump says he will decide soon about future of U.S. troops in Syria

“Our primary mission in terms of that was getting rid of ISIS. We’ve almost completed that task and we’ll be making a decision very quickly in coordination with others, as to what we’ll do,” Trump said during a press conference alongside the heads of three Baltic states, using a common acronym for the extremist Islamic State group. “I want to get out. I want to bring our troops home.”

Also on Tuesday, Brett McGurk, the special U.S. envoy for the global coalition against Islamic State, told a forum in Washington: “We are in Syria to fight ISIS. That is our mission and our mission isn’t over and we are going to complete that mission.”
