The Free Press Journal - - WORLD -

French Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron said that he "con­vinced" his Amer­i­can coun­ter­part Don­ald Trump to re­main in Syria be­fore the co­or­di­nated strikes launched against tar­geted Syr­ian gov­ern­ment sites in re­sponse to an al­leged chem­i­cal at­tack, the me­dia re­ported. "Ten days ago, Pres­i­dent Trump said the US's will is to dis­en­gage from Syria. We con­vinced him that it was nec­es­sary to stay," CNN quoted Macron as say­ing on Sun­day dur­ing a two-hour tele­vised in­ter­view with sev­eral French me­dia out­lets.
