The president made an announcement Monday morning that caught everyone off guard. Every politician, even those deep in Trump’s pocket, have spoken out against the idea to pull troops out of Syria. Trump has not revealed his true reasoning behind the decision, but he likely never will because there is likely an ulterior motive.
Now, Speaker Pelosi has released a statement to the press in which she makes the president sound like a total idiot. Pelosi said this Monday afternoon:
“The President’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Northern Syria is a deeply disturbing development that betrays our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS.”
“Despite what the President might say, ISIS remains a serious threat. This reckless, misguided decision undermines the efforts by our brave service members and our allies to end ISIS’s tyranny.”
“President Trump has abandoned our Kurdish partners.”
“This decision poses a dire threat to regional security and stability, and sends a dangerous message to Iran and Russia, as well as our allies, that the United States is no longer a trusted partner.”
Trump reportedly made his decision without running it by the Pentagon, leaving officials there dumbfounded by the presidents decision to bail on the foreign allies who have stood by us in defeating ISIS for years.
Republican Senator Pat Toomey said this about Trump’s decision:
“This betrayal of the Kurds will also severely harm our credibility as an ally the world over. President Trump should rethink this decision immediately.”
Pelosi wasn’t done there though. She went on to finish, saying:
“The President must reverse this dangerous decision. The American people deserve a smart, strong and strategic national security policy that keeps America safe.”
