Mitch McConnell admits Trump’s Syria withdrawal only benefits Russia and Iran

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that Trump’s withdrawal of troops from Syria will only help Russia and Iran.

McConnell has been attacked as “Moscow Mitch” for protecting President Donald Trump during the Russia investigation while scoring a major aluminum plant in his state from a Russian oligarch.

According to CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller, McConnell raised concerns about the decision, calling it “a precipitous withdrawal” and saying it “would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime.”

According to Knoller, McConnell urged Trump to keep the coalition together to defeat ISIS instead of agreeing to whatever international leaders tell him to do.

Trump campaigned on the idea of withdrawing troops from the Middle East to stop never-ending wars. When he tried to withdraw all troops in Afghanistan, Republican leaders were forced to vote against Trump’s plan. The measure, which passed by the Senate 68-23, said the Islamic State and al-Qaida militants are still a serious threat to the U.S. “A precipitous withdrawal” of U.S. forces from those countries could “allow terrorists to regroup, destabilize critical regions and create vacuums that could be filled by Iran or Russia,” it said.

According to the president, "The @foxnewPolls, always inaccurate, are heavily weighted toward Dems. So ridiculous - same thing happened in 2016. They got it all wrong. Get a new pollster!"

The report states, "A group of 30 freshman Democrats, led by Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), has asked House leaders to consider the libertarian, who left the Republican Party earlier this year, for the small group tasked with arguing its case for removing Trump in the upper chamber, according to several Democratic officials."

Trump launches furious attack on Obama, Comey and IG Horowitz — then demands an apology

Published

on

Grabbing onto any straw he can, Donald Trump launched a multi-tweet attack on Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and former FBI Director James Comey, while insisting that everything he has done has been on the up-and-up -- and snapped at former President Barack Obama while he was at it.

According to the president, "As bad as the I.G. Report is for the FBI and others, and it is really bad, remember that I.G. Horowitz was appointed by Obama. There was tremendous bias and guilt exposed, so obvious, but Horowitz couldn’t get himself to say it. Big credibility loss. Obama knew everything!"
