Incoming Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham warns this is an "Obama-like" mistake and has been hitting the airwaves in an effort to get President Trump to change his mind.
Sen. Graham on Trump’s plan to withdraw troops from Syria: “I can assure you it was done not based on sound military advice. All the advice the President received from his national security team was it’s not time to withdraw from Syria… This is just a disaster in the making.” pic.twitter.com/pO2Uu5qrIW— CNN (@CNN) December 20, 2018
On Capitol Hill Thursday afternoon, Graham held a press conference with fellow Republican and Democrat Senators. He pleaded with the President to change his mind and said he has bipartisan support to keep U.S. troops in the country.
Sen. Lindsey Graham says decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria is "a big gift" to Iran, ISIS: "The only reason they're not dancing in the aisles in Tehran and ISIS camps is they don't believe in dancing." https://t.co/Gx2T33NV8T pic.twitter.com/5APQMMNwgC— ABC News (@ABC) December 20, 2018
It isn't going well.
It is not FAKE NEWS that Russia, Iran, and Assad are unhappy about our decision to withdraw from Syria.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) December 20, 2018
They are ECSTATIC! https://t.co/7cZgEDBbdT
So hard to believe that Lindsey Graham would be against saving soldier lives & billions of $$$. Why are we fighting for our enemy, Syria, by staying & killing ISIS for them, Russia, Iran & other locals? Time to focus on our Country & bring our youth back home where they belong!— Donald J.
