Did President Trump Telegraph Pulling Out of Syria to Bait His Enemies to Respond to Keep Forces There?

Difficult to imagine is that president Trump would announce his intent to soon pull the U. S. military forces out of Syria considering that candidate Trump said many times on the campaign trail that a U. S. president announcing ahead of time his military plans to the world is stupid, so apparently Trump gave the fake announcement to see how his foes domestically and internationally would respond, the awful gas attack in Syria the response, committed by whom uncertain at this point.
