President Donald Trump reiterated on Tuesday that he wants US troops to be pulled out of Syria, but indicated that a decision had not yet been taken.

"I want to bring our troops back home. I want to start rebuilding our nation," Trump said, having indicated that US troops will leave once the Islamic State group is routed.
