President Trump shocked lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, along with the Pentagon, when he suddenly announced late Sunday night that the U.S. will pull troops out of northeast Syria, where they have been operating with Kurdish freedom fighters in the fight against ISIS.

The president said Turkey will move forward with its planned military operation into the area, and the U.S. will not be involved.

“Turkey will now be responsible for all ISIS fighters in the area captured over the past two years in the wake of the territorial ‘Caliphate’ by the United States,” a statement from the White House reads.

Outrage has erupted on Capitol Hill over the decision, as many fear it will lead to a resurgence of ISIS, and the Kurds, who have been America’s allies, will be slaughtered.

President Trump argues that ISIS has been defeated, and now the local countries need to work out their own problems, instead of the U.S. spending money holding the ISIS fighters.

“I held off this fight for almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home,” Trump said in a Twitter post, adding that the U.S. “will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!”

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley are among the many who have blasted Trump for his decision. Graham said the move is a “a disaster in the making” that will be a “stain on America’s honor for abandoning the Kurds.”

Haley said Turkey is “not our friend” and leaving the Kurds to die is a big mistake.

    It was never our war to fight in the first place. We need to secure our borders and be selective of whom is coming in the US, period end of story.

    We cannot police the world. I feel for the Kurds and their fearce determination for autonomy. This is a dispute between warring Muslims. I don’t like Turkey’s leader or their stance, but it’s not our war.

    We need to become less involved in the Middle East. I don’t know the particulars of the deal. I can only hope he got protection for the Kurds helping him us that would be the right thing to do

    Most Americans want these wars stopped. You will have the usual war hawks, Graham, McConnell and Hillary won’t like it.

    I truly believe that most Americans are tired of being the world’s policeman. We sacrifice the lives of our young men and women and spend billions of dollars we borrow on people who hate us. Trump promised to get us out of these wars and this is one we do not need to be in.
    I am sure those that are screaming the loudest are the war hawks who profit from the military industrial complex. War is big business and profitable for those who sell and manufacture weapons.

    Having s Muslim country with unstable leaders like Turkey, is just what ISIS would want. Not a good idea to leave the Kurds.
