Susan Rice Is Mopping The Floor With Donald Trump On Twitter

President Donald Trump is engaged in a war of words with former Obama administration national security adviser Susan Rice over Syria after she sharply criticized his policy on Friday night. It’s not going well for him.

“It’s going nowhere good,” Rice said of Trump’s Middle East policy during an appearance on Bill Maher’s show late Friday, pointing to Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria earlier this month ahead of a Turkish offensive in the region.

Rice added that Trump effectively ceded “a portion of northern Syria — Kurdish homeland — to the Turks” and predicted that “ISIS is going to come back.”

Trump was apparently watching the show and quickly responded with a raging tweet calling Rice a “disaster” during her tenure as national security adviser.

“Susan Rice, who was a disaster to President Obama as National Security Advisor, is now telling us her opinion on what to do in Syria. Remember RED LINE IN THE SAND? That was Obama. Millions killed! No thanks Susan, you were a disaster,” he wrote.

Rice hit back by revealing that Trump had told her at the 2015 White House correspondents’ dinner that she had been “unfairly treated” and “was doing a great job.”

“Then why did you come up and hug me at 2015 WHCD when I’d never met you (which was totally gross) and whisper in my ear that I had been ‘very unfairly treated’ over Benghazi and ‘was doing a great job for the country’?” she tweeted.

When asked by reporters at the time about his embrace with Rice, Trump said, “She’s got the toughest job.”

“She’s a good woman,” he added. “And nothing in life is easy, there’s no question about it.”

Take a look at the exchange below.

It’s clear that Trump picked the wrong target to attack.
