Pat Robertson Escalates Attacks on Trump Over Syria Pullout, Says It's Like Appeasing Hitler in 1938
President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US Special Forces from northern Syria is still receiving backlash for abandoning Kurdish allies in the region, leaving them vulnerable to aggression from neighboring Turkey.
Even far-Right televangelist and 700 Club host Pat Robertson is decrying the move, despite his staunch support for Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump is on the receiving end of widespread bipartisan backlash for his decision to abandon Kurdish allies backed by U.S. Special Forces in Northern Syria, paving the way for aggression from neighboring Turkey.
While the backlash may be resounding in the United States, Russian media personalities are celebrating the President's subservience to Turkey and Russia, which has been trying to gain a foothold in the region for some time.
Hillary Clinton Mocks Trump's Letter to Turkish President With Fake 1962 Letter From Kennedy to Khrushchev 'Found in the Archives'
Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton may not tweet nearly as often as President Donald Trump, but her ability to troll the President on the site remains unmatched.
Her latest troll comes after Trump's bizarre letter to Turkish President Recep Erdogan in which Trump warned Erdogan not to be a "fool" or a "tough guy," then compared him to the devil if he didn't invade Northern Syria in a "humane" way.
Turkish President Slams Trump's Letter for 'Lack of Respect' and People Are Pretty Sure He Just Threatened the U.S.
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump announced an abrupt withdrawal of U.S. Special Forces from Northern Syria, abandoning Kurdish allies who were crucial in the containment of ISIS. The withdrawal left Kurds in the region vulnerable to an all-but-certain attack from neighboring Turkey—an attack which occurred immediately after the announcement of withdrawal.
President Donald Trump subsequently sent a bizarre letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatening to destroy the Turkish economy if Erdogan didn't make a "good deal" with the United States and threatened that history would forever look upon him as "the devil" if "good things don't happen."
Republican Congressman Slams Trump After Report That U.S. Forces Bombed Our Own Base in Syria as Turkish Forces Closed in
Illinois Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger continued his criticism of President Donald Trump's decision to abandon Kurdish allies in Syria with a United States military withdrawal. Trump also gave Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan the green light to begin an invasion of the area.
Kinzinger—a military veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan—shared a screenshot of a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article on Twitter with the caption:
While fighting in Syria continues to escalate after President Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of the United States military from the region, tensions in Washington DC between Trump and members of the GOP is rising as well. Some of the always Trump camp have criticized the President on Twitter, in official statements, in the press and on Fox News.
One such staunch Trump supporter was Senator Lindsey Graham who could be counted on to excuse and explain whatever the President did. But the divide between the two over Syria continued to widen Wednesday when Trump took time out of a press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella to lob criticism at the South Carolina Republican Senator.

President Donald Trump was warned by both sides of the aisle that abandoning our Kurdish allies in Northern Syria would pave the way for Turkey to commit atrocities and acts of war against the Syrian Kurds.
Nevertheless, Trump went through with his plan and sure enough, within days of U.S. withdrawal, Turkish forces moved in and now hundreds of Kurds are dead.
