(Worthy News) - President Trump claimed Monday that he never said the U.S. would "rush out" of Syria despite reporting that indicated he had ordered a rapid withdrawal.
Trump was asked about his weekend meeting with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a vocal critic of the pullout, who said afterwards, "I feel a lot better" about the plan after Trump "told me some things that I didn't know."
"Well, I don’t think too much, except that I said, you know, I never said that I'm gonna rush out," Trump said in a New Year's Eve interview with Fox News. "We’re going to get out. We’re getting out of Syria; we’re bringing our young, great troops home after so many years." [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
