In particular, in political circles, the United States cannot reach a consensus on how to liberate the country from militants, while not allowing the establishment of control by President Bashar Assad and Iranian forces over the region.

According to NBC sources, some of the most conservative members of the Trump administration, including the US Permanent Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, strongly advocate the removal of Assad from power. However, some US government officials are confident that only the president is keeping Syria from becoming a "black hole that can absorb most of the region."
