As US Announces Troop Withdrawal from Syria, Trump Receives Backlash from Allies

The United States Trump administration on Wednesday announced a pull out of their troops from Syria, a decision that came with confusion and shock to US Allies.

A White House official who briefed reporters on the decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria did not say how many have come home so far, of what the timeline is or when others will be leaving, the CNN reported.

The official referred several questions to US Department of Defense.

Trump first hinted at such a move with a Wednesday morning tweet: “We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump presidency.”

He then followed up with a video announcement on Wednesday evening: “We’ve beaten them and we’ve beaten them badly. We’ve taken back the land and now it’s time for our troops to come back home.”

This was despite his senior military officials advising against the decision.

This comes after a news broke out on Wednesday that the ISIS killed scores of people it captured.
