WH: US still wants out of Syria

United States President Donald Trump still wants US forces in Syria to return home as soon as possible, the White House said after French President Emmanuel Macron claimed he had convinced Trump to stay in Syria for the long term.

"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 spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Sanders added that the US is determined to "completely crush" the Islamic state and prevent its return.
