“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.”
