President Trump has gotten a lot of support from Senator Lindsey Graham until he decided to pull troops from Syria which Graham objected to. Trump decided to call out Graham for it.

According to Fox News:

President Trump hit back Thursday at Sen. Lindsey Graham -- who on most issues has been a reliable White House ally -- after the hawkish South Carolina Republican criticized the president’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

“So hard to believe that Lindsey Graham would be against saving soldier lives & billions of $$$. Why are we fighting for our enemy, Syria, by staying & killing for them, Russia, Iran & other locals?  Time to focus on our Country & bring out youth back home where they belong!” Trump tweeted Thursday.

 

The president’s comments come after Graham slammed his decision to remove 2,000 troops from Syria, calling the move “Obama-like.”

“My theory is that by pulling 2,200 out in Northeastern Syria, that’s going to boost ISIS’ ability to come back,” Graham told Fox News on Wednesday. “But even more than that, the Kurds in Syria, who came forward when nobody else would to help us fight ISIS, fought bravely and died in large numbers, they’re going to feel abandoned.”

Graham went so far that he compared the move to one that would have been made by Obama. It is unclear if Graham will work to repair the relationship with the president.
