During an appearance on MSNBC this Thursday, former Russian foreign minister Andrei Kozyrev commented on the "meltdown of American diplomacy" in the wake of President Trump's withdrawal of US troops from northeast Syria, effectively green-lighting Turkey's invasion of the region.

"Russia is in support of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] who is losing ... and who is isolated there [in a war] where there is no end," Kozyrev said. "It's a dead-end war there which they are waging, and all off a sudden [Trump] is coming [Putin's] way from the American side."
‘Get over it’: Trump’s chief of staff reveals Ukraine quid pro quo — but insists it’s just ‘politics’ as usual
White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that President Donald Trump held up Ukraine aid to pressure the country to investigate a conspiracy theory.

However, he insisted that did not represent a quid pro quo arrangement.
"We do that all the time, get over it," Mulvaney said. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy, elections do have consequences."
