President Trump on Tuesday signaled that he wants to pull U.S. troops out of Syria, but said no final decision has been made.
“I want to get out. I want to bring those troops home," Trump said at a news conference with leaders from Baltic states.
"Seven trillion dollars in the Middle East over the last 17 years, we get nothing out of it … except death and destruction. It’s a horrible thing.”
The president pointed to America's success in combating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group in the region, adding that he will consult with his advisers and foreign leaders about the American military presence in the war-torn nation.
Now I think that a lot of us would like to see the troops brought home from overseas, including from Syria.
However keep in mind that Putin has made it known that HE wants the American troops out of the way, so if Trump brings them home rest assured that he is not doing it for the troops or for the American people.
So where DOES Trump want to send the troops?
Funny you should ask.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he intended to deploy troops along the U.S.-Mexico border until a wall was built there, proposing an escalation of efforts to prevent people from entering the country illegally via the southern border.
The move would ramp up Trump’s battle over immigration, after he has run into hurdles carrying out his campaign-trail promise to build a wall at Mexico’s expense. Most recently, he has been preoccupied by a group of migrants, mostly from Honduras, making their way north through Mexico toward the U.S.
“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump said on Tuesday during a session at the White House with the leaders of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing and, by the way, never showing up for court.”
I'm sorry did I miss the memo?
When did we declare war on Mexico?
Keep in mind that pulling the troops out of Syria would please Trump's puppet master Vladimir Putin to no end, while placing the military on the border to defend America against people wanting to work here will please his xenophobic deplorable base.
In other words Trump is clearly trying to please to different constituencies.
Trump also seems to be getting very sensitive about allegations that he is Putin's bitch.
"Probably nobody's been tougher to Russia than Donald Trump."Trump just told one of his biggest lies ever: “No one has been tougher to Russia than Donald Trump," said Donald Trump. #ImpeachTrump pic.twitter.com/zpr93jUVan— Scott Dworkin (@funder) April 3, 2018
Please, the only person who has been a bigger sycophant to Vladimir Putin is probably the guy who oils him up before he poses for those bare chested magazine covers and calendar pages.
Trump is not even trying to give the appearance that he isn't Putin's butt boy anymore.
So why the fuck is he still in the White House?
