ISIS/MILITARY/SYRIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The White House said on Wednesday [4-4-18] that the United States is committed to continuing to fight the Islamic State in Syria, signaling a retreat by President Trump from his insistence that the 2,000 American forces there quickly return home from the conflict…Mr. Trump met with military commanders to discuss the future of the mission….Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the press secretary, said in a statement issued one day after Mr. Trump met with military commanders to discuss the future of the mission[,] ‘The United States and our partners remain committed to eliminating the small ISIS presence in Syria that our forces have not already eradicated.’ The statement indicated that the president’s top military advisers, who have argued that maintaining United States forces in Syria is crucial to defeating the Islamic State and ensuring that the militant group cannot regain a foothold in the region, have succeeded — at least for now — in persuading an impatient commander in chief not to order a quick withdrawal.”
