U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull troops out of northeastern Syria is "a total capitulation to Erdogan," an informed source has told CNN's Jack Tapper, a news anchorman and former White House reporter. Trump, following a phone talk with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on December 14, announced that the U.S. troops will immediately withdraw. The news was greeted with applause in the Turkish capital city of Ankara, where Erdogan and pro-Turkish government media described it as nothing less than a victory.
