Back in April, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined several other lawmakers to blast President Trump for keeping U.S. troops in Syria.

“The 2015 introduction of U.S. military forces into hostilities in Syria was never approved by Congress, in violation of the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973,” says the letter, signed by a bipartisan group of lawmakers, including Republican Sens. Mike Lee and Rand Paul and freshman Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. “We believe that the stated intention of withdrawing our forces is appropriate, and we look forward to the orderly return of our service members from this theater of conflict.”

The article goes on to state the following:

So, fast forward to this week. The Trump Administration announces that American troops will begin a withdrawal from the Syrian border to make way for a Turkish incursion into the region.

Ocasio-Cortez opposed Trump’s actions in Syria. In a tweet, she wrote:

“Trump’s sudden withdrawal from northern Syria & endorsement of Turkey’s actions could have catastrophic consequences & risks laying the ground for immense violence and suffering. We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people.”

She added:

“Trump [sic] decision isn’t about drawing down US military involvement at all. Remember that earlier this year, Trump VETOED Congress’ attempt to end US involvement in the Yemen War. He has significant personal financial conflicts of interest in this situation, among other concerns.”
