All of this for only 25 US troops.
(Gateway Pundit) – The liberal media and trigger happy Republicans lashed out at President Donald Trump on Monday after news broke that he was removing US troops from Northern Syria.
Nicky Haley, Senator Lindsey Graham and Meghan McCain, among others, lashed out at President Trump on Monday for withdrawing US troops from the region.
The Times of Israel later reported that the number of troops in the region is less than 25 people in total.

Update: The Wall Street Journal says there are 1,000 US troops in Trump.
Rand Paul supports the president.
GOP KY Sen Paul on on Fox on new Syria policy: President Trump so right about regime change..(it) hasn't worked. It's led to more chaos and the rise of ISIS came in the chaos of Hussein being toppled but also the chaos of Assad's regime being made marginal and made fragile.

Flashback: Trump Destroys Media’s Double-Standard On Troops In Syria
Trump could literally cure cancer, end global poverty, and adopt a million abandoned kittens and the left would still find something to complain about.
The President’s announcement that he has decided to pull troops out of Syria last week shook the left and the media (but I repeat myself) to their core, most likely because they would have hailed any other president who did so.
This is precisely what Trump slammed them for over the weekend, as they fell all over themselves to lament the withdrawal (leave it to Trump to turn the left into warhawks.)
If anybody but your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, announced that, after decimating ISIS in Syria, we were going to bring our troops back home (happy & healthy), that person would be the most popular hero in America. With me, hit hard instead by the Fake News Media. Crazy!

“If anybody but your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, announced that, after decimating ISIS in Syria, we were going to bring our troops back home (happy & healthy), that person would be the most popular hero in America,” the President wrote on Twitter. “With me, hit hard instead by the Fake News Media. Crazy!”
He is, of course, entirely correct.
Trump ran on a platform of America First, and his withdrawal from Syria is completely consistent with the stance he’s always had on foreign policy.
In fact, the two instances in which he launched surprise missile attacks on what were believed to be chemical weapons facilities in Syria, the left totally lost their minds over that too.
When Bush 43 was in office, the media regularly lamented his military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, as did many conservatives, just the sort of conservatives who voted for Trump because they wanted to see American troops at home and taxpayer dollars put into programs that would help Americans first.
Which is it, mainstream media? Has Trump Derangement Syndrome made you this delusional that you’re defending foreign wars?
