Syrian Kurds lobbied Congress, Trump to prevent troop withdrawal

Representatives of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces engaged in a public relations and lobbying push earlier this year to oppose President Donald Trump’s prior decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, according to Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filings revealed by the Center for Responsive Politics’ Foreign Lobby Watch tool.

The U.S. Mission of the Syrian Democratic Council, the political arm of the Kurdish-led SDF, met with Trump, lawmakers, think tanks, reporters and an administration official during a push to maintain some sort of troop presence in Syria.


Trump now says he agrees ‘100 percent’ that some US troops need to stay in Syria

The statement was made in a response to a letter sent by members of Congress
