Trumps Signals Small Number of US Troops will Remain in stay

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump said Monday that a “small” number of U.S. troops will remain in Syria amid blistering criticism from lawmakers in both parties who have denounced his previous decision to withdraw American forces.

“I’m trying to get out of wars. We may have to get in wars, too,” Trump said during in a rambling, 70-minute Cabinet meeting on Monday.

Trump’s remarks came after residents of a Kurdish city in Syria hurled potatoes and insults at departing U.S. troops on Monday, the latest sign of the Kurds’ bitter sense of betrayal after Trump seemed to pave the way for a deadly Turkish assault that began nearly two weeks ago.
