Cowardly Mitch McConnell Criticizes Obama, Not Trump, For Syria Withdrawal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote an op-ed criticizing Trump’s Syria withdrawal, but mentioned Obama three times and not Trump.

McConnell wrote in The Washington Post:
Withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria is a grave strategic mistake. It will leave the American people and homeland less safe, embolden our enemies, and weaken important alliances. Sadly, the recently announced pullout risks repeating the Obama administration’s reckless withdrawal from Iraq, which facilitated the rise of the Islamic State in the first place.


Second, there is no substitute for American leadership. No other nation can match our capability to spearhead multinational campaigns that can defeat terrorists and help stabilize the region. Libya and Syria both testify to the bloody results of the Obama administration’s “leading from behind.”

We saw humanitarian disaster and a terrorist free-for-all after we abandoned Afghanistan in the 1990s, laying the groundwork for 9/11. We saw the Islamic State flourish in Iraq after President Barack Obama’s retreat. We will see these things anew in Syria and Afghanistan if we abandon our partners and retreat from these conflicts before they are won.

Mitch McConnell came out strong against Obama after Trump sold-out US allies, led from behind, facilitated the rebirth of ISIS.

Everything that McConnell falsely accused Obama of doing in his op-ed was actually something that was done by Donald Trump over the past week.

The problem with the Republican Party is that no in leadership or authority will stand up to Donald Trump. McConnell criticized Obama three times in an op-ed that was supposed to be a criticism of Donald Trump’s Syria withdrawal.

Spineless can’t even begin to describe McConnell’s behavior. Trump gets away with betraying America because the Republican Party is afraid to stand up to him.

Donald Trump sold out America, and Mitch McConnell helped him.
