Actually Trump's reasoning seems to be if he did not do what Erdogan wanted him to do, get our troops out so he could go in and wipe out the Kerds who he felt were some kind of threat, his financial interests would be threatened. We don't know what Erdogan told Trump during that conversation. Trump acted immediately without even discussing it with anyone.
Of course ISIS will rise again with us gone. There is no one left there now to stop them. Or at least no one they can't overpower.
If Trump's concern is we'll never get out that also has to mean he'll bring all our soldier home because those tribal wars have been going on all over that area not just in that immediate area. You know, why would he just remove them from where Turkey wanted to slaughter the Kurds and not in other areas as well.
