In December 2018, Trump declared the withdrawal of all American troops from Syria. On February 22nd, a bi-partisan group of Congress members wrote Trump expressing the following:
“We support a small American stabilizing force in Syria, which includes a small contingent of American troops and ground forces from our European allies, is essential to insure stability and prevent the return of ISIS”
Trump response was that he “100%” agrees and “ALL is being done”, contradicting his prior statements of complete withdrawal from Syria. He signed and returned the letter with the response to the bi-partisan group of congress members.
