President Trump To Keep Roughly 2K U.S. Troops In Syria Until ISIS Is Defeated

President Trump is telling the U.S. military to prepare for the withdrawal of troops from Syria, but has chosen not to pull American forces until ISIS is absolutely defeated.
U.S. officials say the president was hesitant about keeping the 2,000 troops in the war torn country, but did so in an effort to commit to his promise to destroy the Islamic State.

“The United States and our partners remain committed to eliminating the small ISIS presence in Syria that our forces have not already eradicated,” announced Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “We will continue to consult with our allies and friends regarding future plans.”
The president reportedly said the U.S. military could also stay to train local forces in an effort to prevent the resurgence of ISIS militants.
This comes after President Trump said he wanted to bring the troops home despite military experts advising against exiting the conflict altogether.
