Top Trump administration officials are saying U.S. forces will remain in Syria for the indefinite future. National Security Adviser John Bolton told the Associated Press on Monday, “We’re not going to leave as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders, and that includes Iranian proxies and militias.” Secretary of Defense James Mattis also confirmed U.S. troops would be staying, but said their focus remains on fighting militants tied to ISIS.
