Graham: Removing U.S. Troops from Syria ‘Single Worst Decision the President Could Make’

Graham
On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said if President Donald Trump removed U.S. troops from Syria, it would be “a disaster in the making.” Graham said, “When it comes to Syria do not read the Obama playbook. This is the Obama playbook, 1 foot in, 1 foot out. This is a disaster in the making. All of his military advisors have said we need to leave troops in Syria to work with them, calm down the conflict between Turkey and the Kurdish fighters who have helped make sure that it does not fall back into the hands of  ISIS. There are over 3,000 ISIS fighters still roaming around Syria. We’ve got troops there to protect us and to protect the region. If we withdrew our troops anytime soon ISIS would come back, the war between Turkey and the Kurds would get out of hand, and you would be giving Damascus to the Iranians without an American presence Russia and Iran would dominate Syria.

Ron Kessler: Trump ‘Will Be Seen as a Great President Just Like Reagan Who Was Dissed by the Press’

Ron Kessler
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Ron Kessler, author of the new book “The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game,” said President Donald Trump will be remembered as a “great president” like Ronald Reagan. Partial transcript as follows: TAPPER: Your book defends the president on a number of fronts including the Russia investigation, “Access Hollywood,” it talks about his marriage, how it’s going to last. I want to get to it in a second. How should people read it? Is it meant as a defense of President Trump? KESSLER: I think it’s a truthful book. It says he will be seen as a great president just like Reagan who was dissed by the press based on the results. The record unemployment, getting rid of ISIS, all these tweets and controversies are going to be forgotten long-term. At the same time there’s plenty of negative items in the book and juicy tidbits in the book. Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
