BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – During his afternoon speech in Richfield, Ohio, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. Armed Forces in Syria will be withdrawing soon.
“We’re coming out of Syria very soon. Let the other people take care of it now,” Trump told the crowd.
Citing the defeat of ISIS, Trump claimed that the U.S. troops can officially withdraw, as their task has been nearly completed.
“We’re going to have 100% of the caliphate, as they call it —sometimes referred to as land. We’re taking it all back,” Trump added.
No date has been officially announced for the U.S.’ departure from Syria.
