Washington sources reported that US President Donald Trump said he will make a decision about pulling troops out of war-battered Syria very soon, expressing remorse about the US role in violent conflicts going back to the country’s invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq nearly two decades ago.
Trump said “Our primary mission in terms of that was getting rid of ISIS. We’ve almost completed that task and we’ll be making a decision very quickly, in coordination with others, as to what we’ll do,” alongside the heads of three Baltic states, using a common acronym for the extremist Islamic State group.
Trump told in a press conference "As of three months ago, the United States had spent $7 trillion on the Middle East over the past 17 years". Previously the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon spurred the country to try to defeat violent and threatening groups in the Middle East and Asia. He added “We get nothing, nothing out of it. Think of it $7 trillion over a 17 year period and they have nothing except death and destruction which is a horrible thing.
