Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reportedly told President Trump last Friday that his country would handle the remainder of Islamic State forces in Syria following a U.S. withdrawal from the country.
….going to be there for three months, and that was seven years ago – we never left. When I became President, ISIS was going wild. Now ISIS is largely defeated and other local countries, including Turkey, should be able to easily take care of whatever remains. We’re coming home!
