If reports about US retreat in #Syria are accurate, the Trump administration has made a grave mistake that will have implications far beyond Syria.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) October 7, 2019
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.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) October 7, 2019
If press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making.
As we reported earlier today Trump followed the official press release with a few insane tweets of his own.
As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019
Press reports? You mean an official release from the White House?— Molly Knight (@molly_knight) October 7, 2019
Why do you and Graham keep saying “if”?— Jay Rey (@jay_rey623) October 7, 2019
There is a White House Press Release.
If? There’s a WH statement and Trump the egomaniacal moron is tweeting about his great wisdom this morning. 😡— Buster's View (@lkoneal) October 7, 2019
Hello Marco Rubio, Trump has tweeted about this and the WH sent out a press release. Perhaps you are thinking this another of Trump’s hilarious jokes?— Tia (@Tia_Arizona) October 7, 2019
Note Trump's pals in Congress seem to qualify their comments on Syria with "if press reports are right".— Laura McGinnis (@TxsleuthUSA) October 7, 2019
The White House sent out notice directly last night about their plan for Syria.
jeeeez, propaganda is like breathing air to them now.
White House: we're abandoning the Kurds.— Pé Resists (@4everNeverTrump) October 7, 2019
Trump himself: it was my magnificent decision to abandon the Kurds.
Republicans: we really have to determine if press reports that Trump has abandoned the Kurds are true.
The WH released a press report last night. Trump tweeted it an hour ago. You: “If reports are accurate” I gotta ask, do you smoke a shit ton of weed in a day or is your brain made of cardboard?— Dusty (@DustinGiebel) October 7, 2019
Wait a minute, "press reports?" You're a member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Trump didn't even tell the committee that a major foreign policy shift was about to happen, and you had to learn about it from "press reports?"— Max Kennerly (@MaxKennerly) October 7, 2019
Doesn't that bother you? It should.
It bothers me!
No, it will not be the line;— Robin Carduner (@RobinCarduner) October 7, 2019
No, he will not find his spine.
The blood of our allies, the Kurds will be on your hands for enabling this. Congress must act IMMEDIATELY to protect the innocent people who will be slaughtered because of this administration’s criminal behavior. What a grand birthday gift to Putin. Shame on @GOP !!!— Susan A (@SusanAndreini) October 7, 2019
If only there were some Senators that could do something about it. Oh wait. Republicans control the Senate and they're too busy covering for Trump on other bad moves.— Melissa loves the Cowboys (@Texasgemi) October 7, 2019
More reprehensible yet typical responses by the GOP to a reprehensible action by the President of the United States.
If it’s not enough that Trump is facing Impeachment for bartering military aid to Ukraine for campaign interference, and similarly pressuring China in public, surely one would think that abandoning our allies left to be massacred in the desert and letting Turkey release all of our ISIS prisoners, would be enough to get the GOP to wake up and reign him in. One would think…
Thousands of people are going to die who fought with honor and bravery with our troops for over a decade against ISIS, because the president would rather kiss the ass of tyrants then respect those who help us fight for freedom around the world. And it’s only Monday.
There’s always an old tweet for everything.
