BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump told a number of reporters during a press conference on the sidelines of the United Nations that his tweet stopped the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Idlib offensive.

“Syria’s a mess and I was responsible (for stopping the offensive) and I hope it stays that way,” he said.

“When I put out on social media a few weeks ago about Idlib province, I said, ‘Don’t do it’,” he continued.

Trump would go on to say that he learned about the situation in Idlib from one of his supporters at a recent rally.

“I was at a meeting with lots of supporters and a woman stood up and she said there is a province in Syria with 3 million people right now. The Iranians, Russians and Syrians are surrounding that province and they are going to kill my sister and kill millions of people in order to get rid of 25,000 or 30,000 terrorists,” Trump told the reporters.

“I said that’s not going to happen. I didn’t hear of Idlib province. I came back and picked up the Failing New York Times and opened it up … not the front page, but there was a very big story and I said wow that’s the same story the woman told me and I found hard to believe and I said how, why would anyone do that,” he added.
