It Looks Like Trump's National Security Advisers Carried the Day Posted on 4/4/2018 at 12:13:06 by Bill Crawford, (14)
As discussed in the below-linked article, it looks like Trump's military advisers convinced Trump to back off on his pronouncement that we would be "pulling out of Syria very, very soon and would let other nations take on the job over there".
This impromptu announcement seemed particularly strange in this instance, in that he made it immediately prior to his having a meeting with his military advisers to thrash out the matter, and since he has loudly criticized previous Presidents on numerous occasions concerning their prematurely revealing their military intentions to potential enemies.
It looks like another instance of his speaking out in an off-the-cuff manner after hearing something (on television?) from some of his Fox Friends.
