Trump Claims Abandoning Syria Was ‘Brilliant’ For The US, Despite Bipartisan Condemnation
Donald Trump made the decision to withdraw U.S. Armed Forces from Northern Syria on Tuesday, which gives Turkey the green light to begin ethnic cleansing of America’s now-former allies.
Trump spoke to reporters at the Oval Office shortly after his decision and called the move “strategically brilliant,” despite receiving backlash from lawmakers of both sides of the aisle.
Experts have said Trump’s moves over the past week have strengthened Russia enormously.
Take a look at the president’s comments in the video clip below:
