“The US mission has not changed — the president has been clear that he wants US forces to come home as quickly as possible,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Sunday. She made this point in response to French President Emmanuel Macron’s statement that he had convinced Trump to keep US forces there. Macron also said he told Trump that it was necessary to limit the airstrikes in Syria, suggesting Trump wanted to go further. “We also persuaded him that we needed to limit the strikes to chemical weapons sites after things got a little carried away over tweets,” Macron told reporters. He also said Syrian ally Russia is complicit.
