On Friday, Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade criticized President Trump’s decision to remove US troops from Syria, according to The Hill. The critiques came during an episode of “Fox & Friends” when Kilmeade was conducting an interview with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Sanders stated that she disagreed with Kilmeade’s statements and praised the president’s role in wiping out “99% of ISIS in Syria.”
“He also is doing exactly what he criticized President Obama for doing. He said President Obama is the founder of ISIS,” Kilmeade pointed out. “He just refounded ISIS because they have 30,000 men there and they are already striking back with our would-be evacuation. The president is really on the griddle with this.”
Kilmeade has been identified as a “frequent supporter” of Trump but sparked debate with Sanders over the withdrawal of troops from Syria.
