Congress apparently cares more about securing Syria than securing the U.S. southern border by building the wall.
That’s about all that can be taken away from some of the Congressional outcry against President Donald Trump who has announced the U.S. will be withdrawing troops from Syria— something Congress never authorized in the first place.
Trump in a tweet stated that U.S. objectives in Syria have been met: “We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.” In another tweet, Trump warned that if Islamic State returned, they’ll get hit: “I am building by far the most powerful military in the world. ISIS hits us they are doomed!”
We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.

Russia, Iran, Syria & many others are not happy about the U.S. leaving, despite what the Fake News says, because now they will have to fight ISIS and others, who they hate, without us. I am building by far the most powerful military in the world. ISIS hits us they are doomed!

President Trump says the objective of defeating Islamic State is achieved. But now members of Congress, who never voted to put troops there in the first place, after three years of being there, are acting as if their permission is needed to leave. It was always an executive decision.
Live by executive action, die by executive action. Congress should have acted. Instead, they’re complaining.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) blasted the withdrawal, calling it “a grave error that will have incredible consequences, potentially not fully thought through.”
