The Trump administration is planning to reduce the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, with the possibility that some troops begin withdrawing in the coming weeks, according to a U.S. official. The current force of 14,000 is expected to be cut in half, with those troops arriving home by the end of the spring, a second U.S. official said.

A third official told ABC News that discussions have been underway for several weeks about how to withdraw some U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

The consideration comes just one day after Trump announced he was pulling 2,000 U.S. troops out of Syria within 30 days.
