One of President Donald Trump’s most reliable defenders in the Senate blasted him Monday morning over his “shortsighted and irresponsible” decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Northern Syria — paving the way for a Turkish military operation.
Appearing on Fox & Friends , a program which long been on a shortlist of the president’s favorites, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) buried Trump’s decision to pullout of Syria.
“Absolutely not,” Graham said — when asked if he could support the move. “If I didn’t see Donald Trump’s name on the tweet, I thought it would be [former President Barack] Obama’s rationale for getting out of Iraq. … This is gonna lead to ISIS’ reemergence”
The senator added, “So this is a big win for Iran and [Syrian president Bashar Al-] Assad. A big win for ISIS.”
