When asked by Brennan if he trusted the intelligence given to him, Trump said that he would disagree with reports if they claimed Iran was a "wonderful kindergarten".

U.S. forces invaded Iraq in 2003, and toppled the regime of Saddam Hussein.

"We'll come back if we have to", Trump said in an interview taped Friday with CBS's Margaret Brennan on "Face the Nation".

While the Kurds have proven themselves to be invaluable in the fight against ISIS in both Syria and Iraq, Turkey views all Kurds as terrorists because of the actions of an ethnically Kurdish militant group inside its own borders.

A variety of Iraqi lawmakers used Trump's visit to the al-Asad base in December to call on US forces to leave the country.

On Monday, Iraqi President Barham Salih told a forum in Baghdad that Trump did not ask Iraq's permission for United States troops stationed there to "watch Iran".

Trump also tasked the Pentagon late a year ago to start making plans for cutting the US force in Afghanistan in half. However, Turkey's Islamist president, Recep Erdogan, called the demand "a very serious mistake" and flatly told U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton, "We can not make any concessions in this regard".

Votel expects that US -backed Kurdish forces in Syria will be able to defeat the last remnants of ISIS before the USA begins the withdrawal of its forces.

As for the number of remaining ISIS fighters in the region, the military's answers to the IG are classified.

ISIS "continues to attract foreign fighters" at a rate of "most likely 50 per month", the task force said.

The Syrian Democratic Front is a Kurdish-led coalition of fighting forces that the US military is helping to battle ISIS and other jihadist groups in Syria.

Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire also said she's concerned about the USA talking with the Taliban "without the engagement of the Afghan government" and about the risk that women would lose their rights and face oppression as they did when the Taliban previously ruled Afghanistan.

Hundreds of fighters from dozens of countries are in SDF custody, according to the US State Department.

The remarks represent the latest warning by current and former U.S. officials about the risk of an Isis resurgence after USA troops are withdrawn. "It is time to reaffirm our commitment to that vision and to the men and women fighting on the ground to uphold it", said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "The group will exploit any reduction in CT [counter-terrorism] pressure to strengthen its clandestine presence and accelerate rebuilding key capabilities, such as media production and external operations".

Salih, speaking at an worldwide forum in Baghdad, cautioned Trump against putting his own country's foreign policy agenda over Iraq's, stating that Trump should not "pursue your own policy priorities".
