Trump explains U.S. will leave Syria as soon as pigs fly

If U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham read DEBKAfile or Pundita he could have learned much earlier that the U.S. military isn't leaving Syria. The Senator, a Trump ally, has been very upset about the announced U.S. pullout from Syria, finally prompting Trump to calm him. 
Sen. Graham says Trump is 'slowing down' Syria withdrawal; December 30, NBC News:
Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters Sunday after a lunch with President Trump that plans to withdraw 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria are "slowing down in a smart way."
Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said outside the White House that talks about removing military personnel from the country are in a "pause situation."
The senator said Trump told him "some things I didn't know" about his plans in Syria "that make me feel a lot better about where we're headed" in the Middle Eastern country.
