By Breitbart. A Senior White House official clarified Monday that President Donald Trump was not immediately withdrawing troops from Syria, after Trump’s phone call with the Turkish president.

Here’s What Republicans Are Saying About Trump’s Decision to Pull Troops from Syria

By The Daily Caller. Republicans took to Twitter on Monday in response to President Donald Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops from northern Syria.

The decision will allow Turkey to invade the country and potentially attack Kurdish fighters, who allied with the U.S. to defeat ISIS, according to a New York Times report.

Some Republicans who often side with Trump opposed the decision. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham — who has been a staunch supporter of the president in recent years — for example, went on a Twitter rampage Monday expressing his disapproval of the move, which he called “sad” and “dangerous.”

“I don’t believe it is a good idea to outsource the fight against ISIS to Russia, Iran, and Turkey. They don’t have America’s best interests at heart. The most probable outcome of this impulsive decision is to ensure Iran’s domination of Syria. The U.S. now has no leverage and Syria will eventually become a nightmare for Israel,” Graham began.
