In an impromptu press statement on the south lawn today, President Trump explained that he thinks this action is OK because the Saudi Arabia is flipping the bill.
Earlier this week Trump was telling everyone how he was ending the wars in the Middle East and bringing everyone home…
So, our military is being hired by Saudi Arabia? I thought we were getting out of Middle East wars?— Sharon (@minrberts) October 11, 2019

Our Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves! Our country was founded on the antithesis of a mercenary army, sold to the highest bidder in the world!

Congrats to our soldiers who signed up to protect our nation, but instead are sellswords to protect a petro-dictatorship— Maximillien RobesgruyeSCARE (@gringusmcdingus) October 11, 2019
Using our military as mercenaries instead of to ensure our national interests is impeachable itself. Our soldiers should not have to die because Trump makes money from Saudi Arabia.— Voting for a true Democrat for 2020 *Primary* (@scribunda) October 11, 2019
“Saudi Arabia…they buy apartments from me, they spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”-trump— Call Congress 202-225-3121, 202-224-3121 (@slipperpawz) October 11, 2019
Just so I get this straight: Trump is sending 2,000 more troops to protect the Saudi royal family and pulling troops protecting the stateless Kurds. He has major financial interests in Saudi Arabia and Turkey and none in Kurdish territories. Do I have that right?— Joe Cirincione (@Cirincione) October 11, 2019
He pulls our forces out of Syria, condemning Kurdish forces to death, and dispatches our troops to Saudi Arabia, home to the majority of the 9/11 terrorist, whose Prince MBS ordered the murder of any American journalist. Explain to me how he is God's chosen one.— George Miranda (@gmiranda511) October 11, 2019
So we're sending troops to Saudi Arabia but Trump wants us to believe that abandoning the Kurds was a principled move to limit U.S. involvement in foreign wars. It wasn't. It was because he has business interests in Saudi & Turkey. End his presidency. Time to drag him from the WH— Tim Wise (@timjacobwise) October 11, 2019
Trump last night: "The single greatest mistake our country made in its history was going into the quicksand of the Middle East … We are going to bring our soldiers back home."— DNC War Room (@DNCWarRoom) October 11, 2019

Every single day it gets worse. Every. Single. Day.
I have to quit asking what it will take for the Republican Senate to grow some balls and get on board with getting rid of this shitty excuse for a president before he fucks us into shit we can’t get out of, and yet here were are getting into more shit.
At some point we might actually have a real coup on our hands, when our military leaders get fed up with this mans incompetence. The sooner the better. It’s clear that congress isn’t going to fix this. He needs to be removed ASAP. Whatever it takes at this point.
