Trump Eyes Military Support to Border Security Efforts

President Donald Trump looks to deploy U.S. troops to help the country’s border with Mexico, DoD News reported Tuesday.

“Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” he said Tuesday at a meeting with the presidents of the three Baltic countries.

Trump also told reporters during a follow-on news conference that he is considering withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria, where nearly 2,000 service members help fight against Islamic State militants.
