Donald Trump declares victory over ISIS in Syria as US withdraws all troops

Donald Trump has declared victory against ISIS in Syria.

The United States president tweeted on Wednesday: “We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.”

It comes as the US considers a complete withdrawal of its forces from Syria, as it winds up its campaign to retake all the territory once held by Islamic State.

Mr Trump has previously expressed his wish for the remaining 2,000 troops to come home when possible, and his latest tweet suggested he saw no further grounds for remaining.

One official, speaking under the condition of anonymity, told Reuters that partners and allies had already been consulted on a withdrawal.
