The president's decision to withdraw USA forces, announced on December 19, surprised top administration officials and allies whose troops are fighting alongside U.S. in a coalition to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group.
President Trump defended his decision to remove U.S. troops from Syria, blasted "failed Generals" for criticizing him and claimed that if anybody other than him took the same action they would be lauded as a "national hero".
"We're talking about sand and death", he stated.
He tweeted, "If anybody but Donald Trump did what I did in Syria, which was an ISIS loaded mess when I became President, they would be a national hero".
However, in Wednesday's cabinet session, Trump also complained, "I didn't like the fact that [the Kurds] are selling the small oil that they have to Iran, and we asked them not to do it". "Don't turn Syria over to the Iranians". "Just doing what I said I was going to do!" the president said.
"Ambassador John Bolton will travel to Israel and Turkey in early January to discuss the deliberate and coordinated withdrawal of USA forces from Syria, and increased cooperation with the Turkish military and other partners", Marquis said in a statement, adding that Dunford and Jeffrey would be traveling with Bolton in Turkey.
Asked about the timetable for withdrawing from Syria, Trump gave no specific timeline, but also did not back up claims made by Sen. "I campaigned against the NEVER ENDING WARS, remember!", he concluded in the third tweet.
Mr Trump also pledged to protect the Kurdish population in areas under United States and Kurdish control in Syria at the moment. "He's frustrated, I get that".
Although they are seeking "libertarian communalism" of the United States anarchist Murray Bookchin, the authorities of Manbij have implemented a policy of the forced Kurdization of the city.
It was not entirely clear whether Trump was referring to the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria or the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Iraq.
The United States has about 2,000 troops - majority special forces - deployed in northern Syria to fight IS and reinforce anti-jihadist forces.
"He has not reversed his decision", Graham said.
Defense Secretary James Mattis unexpectedly resigned after the announcement, and Brett McGurk, the US's top envoy in the fight against ISIL, announced he would be leaving his post earlier than expected due to the decision. If the Kurds - which Ankara considers terrorists - were to actually leave the area, there would be "no job left" there for the Turkish military, Erdogan said.
In response to the uproar, Trump national security advisor John Bolton will soon visit allies Turkey and Israel, which each have their own complex goals in Syria's multi-dimensional civil war.

He even scrambled for a few hard-fought yards with former Miami Dolphins quarterback and Hall of Famer Dan Marino in attendance. I'd feel much more comfortable with Alabama at -3.5 than I am with Saban's crewing being favored by almost a touchdown.
