Trump Rants About His ‘Unmatched Wisdom’ In Abandoning The Kurds In Syria, Republicans Furious

President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter about his “great and unmatched wisdom” to pull out of Northern Syria and abandon the Kurds, who have been U.S. allies in fighting ISIS, notes The Hill.

Trump also threatened Turkey, a NATO ally, saying he will “totally destroy and obliterate” their economy if they do anything he considers “to be off limits.”

Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley said Trump’s decision to leave the Kurds “to die” is a “big mistake.”

During an appearance on “Fox and Friends,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called Trump’s decision to pullout of Northern Syria “shortsighted and irresponsible”:

If I didn’t see Donald Trump’s name on the tweet, I thought it would be [former President Barack] Obama’s rationale for getting out of Iraq. … This is gonna lead to ISIS’ reemergence. So this is a big win for Iran and [Syrian president Bashar Al-] Assad. A big win for ISIS.
