WASHINGTON Two months after declaring all U.S. troops are leaving Syria, President Donald Trump wrote to members of Congress that he now agrees "100%" with keeping a military presence in Syria.

A bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives wrote to Trump on Feb. 22, applauding his decision to keep a small residual force in Syria.

"We support a small American stabilizing force in Syria," the group wrote, adding that a force "which includes a small contingent of American troops and ground forces from our European allies, is essential to ensure stability and prevent the return of ISIS."

"I agree 100%. ALL is being done," President Trump responded, writing directly on the letter and signing it.

9. The catch is that he'll say the total opposite thing tomorrow or next week.

I remember as a kid I used to play Civilization 1. I had no idea what I was doing in the game. I didn't understand much that was I seeing or doing. I'd just click buttons and icons, and as a result I'd sack cities, set off a few nukes here and there, cause global famines, and form alliances with evil maniacs like nuke loving Gandhi (https://kotaku.com/gandhi-is-still-an-asshole-in-civilization-vi-1788710568) I am pretty sure that's exactly how Trump plays president.

7. i think Gen Mattis had to leave to maintain his own sanity

8. This brief video explains Trump's approach to foreign affairs:



Come to think of it, whether or not Fat Donnie engaged in a foreign affair while he was in Moscow for the beauty contest might be an interesting line of investigation for the House Oversight Committee. We know how he feels about young girls:
