(The Hill) Speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House Trump said he has great respect for the prominent Republicans who are urging him to reconsider his strategy but that its time to come back home. Weve been there for many many many years beyond what we were supposed to be. Not fighting. Just there. Just there. And its time to come back home Trump said in his first public remarks since the shift was announced late Sunday. But I can understand the other side of it he continued. But if you go by the other side that means we should never ever come home.
