Neocons and Never Trumpers Pile on President Trump Over His Removal of Troops in Syria

These interests want a Bush-era foreign policy.

President Donald Trump was put into the Oval Office in 2016 to enact an “America First” agenda, which meant bringing troops home from foreign conflicts and an end to the costly U.S. role as world policeman.

For living up to his mandate, President Trump is getting lambasted by neoconservatives and “Never Trumpers” who are angry that Trump is moving toward peace abroad.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a neocon warmonger who is generally supportive of Trump, was among the first to bash the President’s decision to remove troops from Northern Syria and cede remaining ISIS prisoners-of-war to Turkey.

“The biggest lie being told by the administration is that ISIS has been defeated,” Graham said, accusing the President of being a liar during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Monday morning. “To say to the American people that ISIS is defeated is just not true.”

Graham also whined in a Twitter post about the U.S. supposedly abandoning the Kurds, a Muslim socialist fighting force that was apart of the coalition to defeat ISIS in Syria.

Trump-hating Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) also expressed his anger with the President for his decision to move toward peace in the Middle East.

“He needs to know that this bad decision will likely result in the slaughter of allies who fought with us, including women and children. I hope the President will listen to his generals and reconsider. And before Turkey butchers innocent Kurds, Erdogan should carefully consider his privileged status as a NATO member. The American people don’t partner with genocidal regimes,” Sasse said in a statement.

Sen. “Little” Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was once one of Trump’s most vicious primary for President in 2016, took a shot at the commander-in-chief as well. He called Trump’s move a “grave mistake that will have implications far beyond Syria.”

“It would confirm [Iran’s] view of this administration & embolden them to escalate hostile attacks which in turn could trigger much broader & more dangerous regional war,” Rubio added.

The ultimate loser, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), didn’t miss this opportunity to bash President Trump, the man who he envies for accomplishing what he never could.

“The President’s decision to abandon our Kurd allies in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal. It says that America is an unreliable ally; it facilitates ISIS resurgence; and it presages another humanitarian disaster,” Romney wrote in a Tweet.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), a neocon whose father Dick was the architect of the Iraq War while serving as Vice President, also criticized the President’s decision.

“This decision ignores lesson of 9/11. Terrorists thousands of miles away can and will use their safe-havens to launch attacks against America,” Cheney wrote in a Tweet.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who worked for Mitt Romney on his failed presidential campaign before being thrust into the U.S. House with establishment money, also condemned the President’s actions.

“Not only will this decision further destabilize the region, it will make it more difficult for the U.S. to recruit allies & partners to defeat terrorist groups like ISIS,” she said.

Despite all of the criticism from the neocons and Never Trumpers, the President remains undaunted in his resolve. He has issued many tweets throughout the day defending his controversial decision.

 

President Trump stands by his move to remove troops from Syria, as his mandate is to put America first, not to appease establishment career politicians in the Washington D.C. swamp.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Soars as the Public Increasingly Supports His Coronavirus Response

The public supports Trump’s crisis response.

Published

on

A Gallup poll has shown that President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 49 percent as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

His approval rating has jumped five points in the past month. This matches his all-time high, which was previously achieved in late January and early February. Ninety-two percent of Republicans support the President, while 43 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats approve of Trump.

Americans also approve of the way President Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Sixty percent of Americans support Trump’s disaster response while 38 percent of Americans disapprove. Ninety-four percent of Republicans support his response, while 60 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats support how Trump has handled coronavirus.

“The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11,” Gallup noted in their report.

“On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation,” they added.

It is not uncommon for an incumbent president to gain in popularity during a crisis, as every commander-in-chief in office during a serious threat has gained support from the public as a result.

“Historically, presidential job approval has increased when the nation is under threat. Every president from Franklin Roosevelt through George W. Bush saw their approval rating surge at least 10 points after a significant national event of this kind. Bush’s 35-point increase after 9/11 is the most notable rally effect on record,” Gallup noted.

Although he is peaking right now, President Trump has consistently shown strength in various polls for many months as the public realizes the fake news is lying about his administration:

New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups…

Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.

Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.

The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.

President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.

The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.

President Trump is showing his leadership bona fides during the crisis, and the public is thrilled with the way he is handling the coronavirus pandemic.
