ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE, April 16 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump still wants to bring U.S. troops home from Syria but has not set a timeline, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Monday, two days after Western allies bombed Syrian targets over a chemical weapons attack.

Sanders, speaking to reporters traveling with Trump to Miami, said the president also is still willing to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but she indicated that no meeting is imminent.
