"We're going to discuss the intense cooperation between Israel and the United States, which will also deal with the questions following the decision, the American decisions on Syria - on how to intensify even further our intelligence and operations cooperation in Syria and elsewhere to block Iranian aggression in the Middle East, to roll it back". On Monday, he said he was "slowly" pulling troops out.

"I think the president is going to finish the job when it comes to ISIS".

Graham told reporters that Trump was committed to making sure Turkey did not clash with the Kurdish forces. On Saturday, the Kremlin confirmed that Damascus had indeed regained control over the territory.

'If anybody but Donald Trump did what I did in Syria, which was an ISIS loaded mess when I became President, they would be a national hero, ' Trump tweeted, using another acronym for IS.

Graham described those modifications in general terms, as he affirmed, "I've never felt better about where we are headed" in Syria. "But the goal has always been the same".

Turkey considers the US-backed YPG as an offshoot of the PKK which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.

Still, Mr Trump declined to set a timetable for United States withdrawal from Syria, reversing an earlier announcement of a fast pullout over a period of 30 days. "That takes pressure off ISIS".

"He has not reversed his decision", Graham said. "The pause is to assess the effects of the conditions on the ground".

Trump abruptly announced in mid-December that he was withdrawing 2,000 USA troops from Syria.

Mr Trump told Lindsey Graham, a leading Republican senator, that he was reconsidering how he would carry out his promise to "bring the troops home", Mr Graham said after a meeting at the White House.

In Syria, about 2,000 U.S. soldiers operate alongside other foreign troops to assist local fighters battling Islamic State, a jihadist group that once held territory across much of Iraq and Syria and set up its own ultra-Islamist government.

The change of heart on the Syria calculus appears to also be related to receiving more financial input from America's Arab allies.

On Wednesday, Trump made clear his frustration with the never-ending "war on terror" that has followed the September 11, 2001, attacks.

"Now when I start getting out the Fake News Media, or some failed Generals who were unable to do the job before I arrived, like to complain about me & my tactics, which are working", Trump wrote in another post.

He said: "I shouldn't be popular in Europe".

Trump's comments come a day after Republican Sen.

That proposal would likely anger Turkey, where Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, is expected to hold talks in the coming days.
