    Hopefully it's about the pullouts and RBG's replacement.

    Declare Victory? What was won? There is no "victory" for the US in Syria.

    Trump initially said he wanted all troops out of Syria within 30 days. That would be by this coming Sunday.

    Is Trump going to give him some tips on how to be an alpha male? Rand better be taking notes when he runs for president again. If he isn't, then hes wasting his time.

    Actually on Afghanistan, Rand doesn't say there will be a pull-out but a "change in the way we do things".

    Rand Paul: Trump poised for draw down in Afghanistan, Syria pullout


    Sen. Rand Paul strongly suggested that President Donald Trump is poised to begin scaling back the U.S. presence in Afghanistan and will follow through on his promise to pull out of Syria, the Kentucky Republican told reporters on Wednesday.

    Paul met with Trump privately and in a larger meeting with other senators on the president’s plans to wind down the U.S. presence in Syria. While Paul would not talk specifics of Trump’s plans, he said that the president recognizes “we’ve been at war too long and in too many places.”

    “Not only is he following through on his Syria policy, I really do think there will be changes in Afghanistan as well,” Paul said in a conference call with reporters. “In general the idea is that we’re going to do things differently. We’re not going to stay forever. The Afghans will have to step up.”

    “It’s not that we’ll do nothing … we’ll probably still be there longer than I would like,” Paul said. “The president does acknowledge that America’s longest war does need to come to a close.”

    Most GOP senators have been pressing the president to do the opposite: Slow the withdrawal from Syria and keep a large presence in Afghanistan. Those hawkish senators, some of whom attended the larger briefing with Trump, have made the case that the Islamic State and other terrorist groups may fill the vacuum left when the U.S. pulls out.

    A terrorist attack in Syria that killed four Americans on Wednesday also raised fears among GOP hawks that the planned pullout could be emboldening terrorists. But Paul said Trump recognizes he still needs to fight terrorism even as he brings U.S. troops home.

    “We talked extensively about Syria, he talked about how we will continue to make sure that ISIS not a problem,” Paul said. “At the same time we won’t be in these places forever.”

    I'm guessing the meeting was really about the AG pick. I could be wrong.

    “Not only is he following through with his Syria policy, I really do think there will be changes in Afghanistan as well,” Paul said. “If you look at the polling data for the American people, I think the American people are with the president and they’re tired, frankly, of both parties who are unwilling to stand up and say enough is enough.”
