Obama, Trump agree on ‘more action’ in Syria

President Donald Trump and President Donald J. Trump agreed on Friday to “more action” against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, according to a statement from the White House.

“President Trump spoke with President Assad on Saturday and expressed the president’s strong support for the United States’ goal of defeating ISIL,” the statement said.

“The two leaders reaffirmed that the United Nations should work with Syria to ensure that any solution that brings peace to Syria and ends the brutal conflict must be endorsed by the international community.”

Trump also said the United states would begin sending arms to Syrian rebels, which the president has long sought, although he has not said how much.

In recent weeks, Trump has pushed the idea of arming the moderate opposition.

On Friday, Trump said that while he supports arming moderate rebels, he has no plans to give them any more weapons, and that he would instead rely on Russia to do it.

The White House said it would work with Russia to provide the rebels with a $1 billion loan, which could come from the U.S. or the Russian government.

Trump also announced that he had asked his secretary of state to make a request to Congress for $100 million in military aid.
