U.S. officials told Fox News that the U.S. was considering pulling all 2,000 American troops on the ground in Syria. Trump appeared to allude to the decision in a morning tweet when he stated: "We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency."

Sullivan to delay the sentencing on charges of making false statements to the FBI, amid the judge's questions over Flynn's cooperation in a separate case involving illegal lobbying for Turkey.
