APNewsBreak: AP Sources: US ends Syria stabilization funding

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Trump administration is ending funding for Syria stabilization projects as it moves to extricate itself from the conflict.

U.S. officials said the administration was notifying Congress Friday it would not spend some $200 million that had been planned for Syria programs and would instead shift that money elsewhere.

They said the cut will be more than offset by an additional $300 million pledged by coalition partners, including $100 million from Saudi Arabia. Still, the move is a sign the administration is heeding President Donald Trumpís demand to end U.S. involvement in Syria and reducing its commitment there.

The officials demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the changes publicly before an announcement.

6. Hillary told us what Trump was in Oct. 2016

(CNN)Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that Donald Trump would be a "puppet" for Russian President Vladimir Putin, if the Republican presidential nominee were elected to the White House.

After Trump attacked Clinton during the third and final presidential debate, saying Putin had "no respect" for her or President Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee shot back, "Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president of the United States."
