White House says ceasefire will "take time" at Syria-Turkey border

Asked about the fighting in the region despite the pause agreement, White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told Fox News in an interview that the U.S. delegation was "successful in a ceasefire, but that takes time," adding that she would not discuss operations on the ground.
