US senator trying to convince Trump to stay in Syria: expert

A political expert believes some US senators are behind President Donald Trump’s decision to stay in Syria as they warn the president that the Kurds in Syria would be under Ankara or Damascus attacks if U.S. troops quit the war-torn country.

Jeffery Goldberg has stated that some U.S. Senators, including Lindsy Graham, are warning Trump that the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria would leave Syrian Kurds defenseless against Damascus and Ankara.

An expert in the Atlantic Council Institute, Goldberg stated that Graham and some other senators have warned Trump that if the Kurds would not under attacks from Damascus and Ankara then the Islamic State (IS) militants would attack them.
