President Donald Trump reaffirmed his belief late Monday that the United States should remove its soldiers from ‘endless wars.’
The President tweeted late Monday: ‘Endless Wars, especially those which are fought out of judgement mistakes that were made many years ago, & those where we are getting little financial or military help from the rich countries that so greatly benefit from what we are doing, will eventually come to a glorious end!’
The tweet came as the Trump administration has sent mixed signals regarding the President’s stated goal of withdrawing American soldiers from Syria.
The President is scheduled to address the nation on Tuesday evening.
The White House’s National Security advisor will meet with Ankara officials on Tuesday to discuss the surprise withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, as the Turkish president hailed the pullout as ‘the right call’.
