Trump Celebrates ‘Big Success’ In Syria As Russia Takes Control Of Key Region

President Donald Trump on Wednesday fired off a tweet celebrating a “big success” in Syria as Russia gained control of a key region of the country.

“Big success on the Turkey/Syria Border. Safe Zone created! Ceasefire has held and combat missions have ended. Kurds are safe and have worked very nicely with us. Captured ISIS prisoners secured. I will be making a statement at 11:00 A.M. from the White House. Thank you! Trump tweeted.

Trump’s victory lap prompted members of Congress to express concerns about his bizarre foreign policy.

Other critics quickly ridiculed Trump’s claim of a “victory.”

“The only ‘big success’ is that Russia is now the dominant power in Syria and Vladimir Putin is the major-domo of Middle East power politics,” said Mark Dubowitz, chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a hawkish Washington-based foreign policy research institute.

Trump has come under withering criticism for withdrawing U.S. forces from northeastern Syria, paving the way for a deadly Turkish attack on U.S.-allied Kurdish forces.
