After Receiving Backlash From GOP, Trump Says He’s Not Abandoning Kurds

Published

on

President Trump has received quite a bit of backlash over his decision to pull troops from Syria which would allow Turkey to enter into the country and come against Kurdish forces there who have been our allies in an ongoing battle against radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS.

Despite all of the backlash from the Republican Party, Trump is still insisting that he is not abandoning the Kurds.

Here’s more via Washington Examiner:

“We may be in the process of leaving Syria, but in no way have we Abandoned the Kurds, who are special people and wonderful fighters,” wrote Trump in a Tuesday morning Twitter post. “Likewise our relationship with Turkey, a NATO and Trading partner, has been very good.

“Turkey already has a large Kurdish population and fully understands that while we only had 50 soldiers remaining in that section of Syria, and they have been removed, any unforced or unnecessary fighting by Turkey will be devastating to their economy and to their very fragile currency. We are helping the Kurds financially/weapons!”

The White House announced the withdrawal on Sunday evening, prompting Trump friends and critics to warn that he had offered a tacit green light for a Turkish strike on Kurdish forces.

The Kurdish fighters have long been allied with Washington in the battle against the Islamic State in Syria, but they are viewed as terrorists by Ankara.

Sen. Lindsey Graham called into “Fox & Friends” where he said this decision by Trump would be a “stain on America’s honor” and went on to warn that the move could cause further chaos in the region.

“This to me is just unnerving to its core,” Graham said. “To say to the American people that ISIS has been destroyed in Syria is just not true.”

Sen. Marco Rubio was also critical of the decision:

Trump framed the move to be part of his ongoing strategy to end America’s foreign wars, which caused a little bit of confusion.

“There’s got to be a time we get out,” Trump said. “We have to bring our people back home.”

Here’s a bit of news you 100% did not expect to read on a Sunday morning, especially considering the state of American politics these days. But it happened. It actually happened. A New Jersey Democrat is becoming a Republican. After decades of living on planet earth, Rep. Jeff Van Drew finally decided it was time to grow up and become an adult. Good for him and better for America! How must Nancy Pelosi feel, at this moment? She just lost yet another vote when it comes to impeaching President Trump. Do you feel bad for her? Don’t answer that. We already know the answer. Check this out, via Daily Wire: New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew, who has strongly opposed the Democrats’ impeachment efforts, is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a member of the Republican Party after meeting with President Donald Trump. […] Van Drew reportedly met “at length” with Trump on Friday and his decision to switch parties is supposed to be officially announced in the near future, a top GOP source told Politico. https://twitter.com/MZanona/status/1205946597974118400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1205949015734575104?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss Reactions: The stunning move comes ahead of a historic vote on impeachment, to which Van Drew is strongly opposed.

Watch: Democrat Rep. Admits Impeachment Vote Delayed to Maximize TV Exposure

How much attention do they need, at this point?

If the mainstream media was honest with the American people, this would be a story they’d report above all else, at the moment. Not only do Democrats want President Trump out of office because they hate him – not because he broke any laws – but they want as much TV time as possible to let the politically uninformed know they are attempting to kick POTUS out, therefore making it seem as if they are doing a good job. Here’s what’s up, via The Blaze: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) enraged Republicans on the committee by suddenly delaying a vote on impeachment articles that was supposed to occur Thursday night, and one Democrat on the committee has admitted the move was for attention. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) told CNN on Friday that instead of having the vote late Thursday night when no one was paying attention, the committee wanted to maximize the number of potential viewers by pushing it until Friday morning. The Thursday night hearing lasted nearly until midnight. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX2gUexYgEE&feature=emb_logo California Democrat Nancy Pelosi knows she’s got jack. All Democrats know they have nothing against President Trump. Unfortunately, that won’t stop them from acting like children and attempting to impeach. The Speaker’s response to liberal CNN host Jake Tapper’s questions about the process shows she’s vapid on the issue. And considering the issue at hand, that’s kind of a big deal. The fact that Dems have taken the impeachment process as far as they have without any proof of presidential wrongdoing whatsoever speaks volumes about character. But they don’t care. WATCH: You can’t make this up. Nancy Pelosi scolds CNN’s @JakeTapper for asking about impeachment on the day she asks for articles of impeachment to be drafted against @realDonaldTrump. #StopTheMadness https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1202784451559862272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202784451559862272&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fpelosi-scolds-cnn-for-asking-her-about-impeachment-on-day-she-declared-impeachment If there is one person…
