US President Donald Trump shared details of his planned withdrawal of American troops from Syria, minutes before he departed Washington DC for Camp David on Sunday.
“We are pulling back in Syria, we are going to be removing our troops. I never said we are doing that quickly, but we are decimating ISIS. When I was elected president two years ago, ISIS was all over Syria and all over Iraq. We have wiped out ISIS in Iraq,” he said.
Trump said the US would withdraw troops, but he stated that “we won’t be finally pulled out until ISIS is gone.”
He also spoke about Iran, claiming that “Iran is doing very poorly, once I took the horrible Iran nuclear deal off. It has a massive effect on Iran, they are pulling back troops all over the place, they are not doing well, they want to talk.”
