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.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
