Mitt Romney and President Trump’s ongoing war of words continues on monday. Mitt took to Twitter to once again bash Trump’s foreign policy saying Trumps decision in Syria was a betrayal to Kurds.
Trump spent the weekend releasing an onslaught of tweets attacking disgraced Senator Mitt Romney.
The White House announced late Sunday that Ankara was moving forward with a long-threatened offensive in northeastern Syria and that U.S. troops would not be in the “immediate area” when it happens.
Trump doubled down on the decision on Monday, tweeting that it was time to pull the United States out of “ridiculous Endless War.”
“WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN,” the president added.https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/464642-romney-calls-trumps-syria-decision-a-betrayal-of-kurds
Around 1,000 U.S. troops have been deployed in northeastern Syria, where they work closely with the Kurdish YPG, which leads the Syrian Democratic Forces in the region.
Trump’s move was quickly panned by several GOP lawmakers, including Sens. Lindsey Graham(R-S.C) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who serve with Romney on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Republicans say the decision will bolster the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and put the lives of Kurdish allies in the region at risk.
Romney’s public pushback comes after Trump spent the weekend lashing out at the GOP senator, including calling him a “pompous ass” and suggesting he should be impeached.
“I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats! #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY,” Trump tweeted.
Romney is part of a small group of GOP senators who have publicly pushed back against Trump for saying late last week that China and Ukraine should investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
