Multiple Republicans Blast Trump’s Syria Decision

The Kurds have long been the United States’ most stalwart ally in fighting back the Islamic State. Donald Trump, though, recently revealed that he will allow Turkey to invade Northern Syria.

This decision by the President has resulted in wide spread condemnation, even from some of his biggest supporters. Both Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio, frequent Trump backers, have blasted his most recent decision.

Graham tweeted out on Monday morning, “I don’t know all the details regarding President Trump’s decision in northern Syria. In process of setting up phone call with Secretary Pompeo. If press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making.”

Marco Rubio had similar sentiments on the decision by the President. He wrote, “We degraded ISIS using Kurd’s as the ground force. Now we have abandoned them & they face annihilation at the hands of the Turkish military ISIS could now be reinvigorated when 1000’s of jailed fighters break out when the Kurdish guards are forced to leave to go fight Turkey.”

The President seemingly got the message that his idea was unpopular. He took to Twitter Monday afternoon, saying, ” was elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars, where our great Military functions as a policing operation to the benefit of people who don’t even like the USA.”

Trump continued, “The two most unhappy countries at this move are Russia & China, because they love seeing us bogged down, watching over a quagmire, & spending big dollars to do so. When I took over, our Military was totally depleted. Now it is stronger than ever before. The endless and ridiculous wars are ENDING! We will be focused on the big picture, knowing we can always go back & BLAST!”
