Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday blasted President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria ahead of an invasion by Turkey, calling it “deeply disturbing.”
“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,” Pelosi said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Despite what the President might say, ISIS remains a serious threat. This reckless, misguided decision undermines the efforts by our brave servicemembers and our allies to end ISIS’s tyranny,” she said.
In the statement posted on her website, Pelosi further added:
“Once again, President Trump is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease an authoritarian strongman. By turning operational responsibility over to the Turks, 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.
“The President must reverse this dangerous decision. The American people deserve a smart, strong and strategic national security policy that keeps America safe.”
Once again, @realDonaldTrump is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease a foreign strongman – this time betraying our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS. https://t.co/Bfa1MzxxCU
