Lindsey Graham Turns On President Trump Calling Him A Liar
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham took disagreement with President Trump during a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday night regarding the President’s decision to pull troops from Syria.
Lindsey Graham said that to claim that ISIS is defeated in Syria is “fake news”.
This comes after a tweet by President Trump yesterday morning,
We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 19, 2018
The Hill reported,
“To those who say ‘we have defeated ISIS in Syria,’ that is an inaccurate statement,” Graham said after Trump’s announcement Wednesday that he would be pulling troops out of the embattled nation. “They have been hurt, they have been degraded.”
“I give the president all the credit in the world for changing their policies regarding the fight against ISIS, but I will not buy into the narrative that they have been defeated,” Graham said, adding that he had just returned from visiting with troops in Afghanistan.
“To say they’re defeated is an overstatement and is fake news,” Graham added. “It is not true. They have been severely damaged but they will come back unless we’re there to stop them.”
President Trump posted the following video on his Twitter feed Wednesday,
The President also tweeted early this morning, “….Russia, Iran, Syria & many others are not happy about the U.S. leaving, despite what the Fake News says, because now they will have to fight ISIS and others, who they hate, without us. I am building by far the most powerful military in the world. ISIS hits us they are doomed!”
So with Lindsey Graham’s opposition to Trump, there are other non-warmongering Republicans who are happy about the decision to pull out of Syria.
Senator Rand Paul, whom I have enormous respect for said of the President’s decision, “I’m proud of the President today to hear that he is declaring victory in Syria.”
There are a number of other Republicans who have joined Graham as well in speaking out against this decision, but you know what? You can’t make everyone happy, but you can always do the right thing. Let’s focus on our country and our borders for a while and not be the policemen of the world.
