Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. is absolutely not getting out the the Middle East.
Pompeo made this remark during an interview on Friday, adding the decision to pull American troops out of Syria is a tactical move.
He said the “U.S. is a force for good in the region…and the move to withdraw troops is intended to keep Americans safe.”
The Secretary added the U.S. still has tremendous reach in the Middle East and, even now, the fight against ISIS still continues.
