Trump: There’s No Reason For US To Be In “Lost” Syria: Nothing But Sand And Death, There’s No Vast Wealth

Newsweek reports:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday called Syria “sand and death” in a question-and-answer session with reporters following a cabinet meeting.

Asked about a timeline for withdrawing troops from the country, the president described how he viewed the country and the fighting there.

“We’re talking about sand and death, that’s what we’re talking about,” Trump said. “We’re not talking about vast wealth. Were talking about sand and death.”
