US Congress asks Donald Trump not to withdraw from Syria

It is unclear if the letter from Congress will push the White House into articulating a clear strategy for Syria.

Hundreds of US congressmen and senators have sent a letter to the White House urging President Donald Trump not to pull troops out of Syria.

The bipartisan plea argues the United States should remain engaged in the conflict to protect regional allies.

Democrats and Republicans have voiced concerns after Trump announced the withdrawal in December.
