Mitt Romney: President Trump Removing Troops From Syria is a ‘Blood Stain in the Annals of American History’

Romney is doubling down on unconstitutional war.

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued an enraged rebuke of President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy on the Senate floor on Thursday.

Romney refused to give President Trump any credit for a brief ceasefire that was finalized yesterday following negotiations between Vice President Mike Pence and Turkish President Recep Erdogan. He denounced President Trump in stronger terms than he ever denounced former President Barack Obama while on the campaign trail in 2012.

“The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally,” Romney said.

“Adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty. Their homes have been burned, and their families have been torn apart,” he added.

Romney, who was a massive proponent of the disastrous Iraq War, grew even more unhinged in his rhetoric against President Trump from there.

“This is a matter of American honor and promise. So too, is the principle that we stand by our allies, that we do not abandon our friends. The decision to abandon the Kurds violates one of our most sacred duties. It strikes at American honor,” he said.

Romney believes that the U.S. should keep being the world police in order to keep the evil Rooskies at bay.

“Iranian and Russian interests in the Middle East have been advanced by our decision. At a time when we are applying maximum pressure on Iran, by giving them a stronger hand in Syria, we’ve actually weakened that pressure. Russia’s objective to play a greater role in the Middle East has also been greatly enhanced. The Kurds, out of desperation, have now aligned with Assad. So America is diminished, Russia, Iran, and Assad are strengthened,” Romney said.

Much to the chagrin of the “Never Trump” warmonger, a resolution against President Trump removing troops from Northern Syria was blocked in the Senate yesterday by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the non-interventionist who is the most prominent supporter of Trump bringing the troops home.

President Trump is also refusing to back down, making it clear that his intentions are to serve the American people instead of the War Party.

“You know, we’re in many countries, many, many countries. I–I’m embarrassed to tell you how many. I know the exact number, but I’m embarrassed to say it because it’s so foolish. We’re in countries–we’re protecting countries that don’t even like us. They take advantage of us. They don’t pay; nothing,” Trump said while addressing reporters at a Wednesday press conference.

“So you have Syria and you have Turkey they are going to argue it out. Maybe they’re going to fight it out but our men aren’t going to get killed over it. And just one other thing–they’ve been fighting for hundreds of years. This has been going on for hundreds of years,” he added.
