🇺🇸 Trump: 'We'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon' | Al Jazeera English

US President Donald Trump has spoken again of his desire to pull American forces out of Syria, suggesting that victory over the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) is "imminent".

He says he expects to make a decision "very quickly", but declined to offer any specific timetable.

The United States has about 2,000 troops on the ground in Syria, and launches air strikes almost every day.

The Pentagon says there is still a lot of work left to beat ISIL, and stabilise the areas recaptured from it.

Trump says if allies like Saudi Arabia want America to stay in Syria, they may have to pay for it.
