White House denies claim that Macron convinced Trump to stay in Syria "long term"

The White House disputed French President Emmanuel Macron's claim that he had convinced Trump to keep U.S. troops in Syria for the "long term" on Monday. According to the White House, Trump still wants U.S. forces out of Syria as soon as possible.

“The U.S. mission has not changed, the president has been clear that he wants U.S. forces to come home as quickly as possible,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders read from a statement.

Sanders also said that while the United States is determined to "completely crush" ISIS , "we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region.”
