Lindsey Graham: Trump’s Troop Withdrawal Will Lead To “Second 9/11”


Sen. Lindsey Graham is urging the president to reconsider a move he believes could lead to another terrorist attack.

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s announced plans to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said such a move would be “paving the way toward a second 9/11."

On Sunday, Graham told CNN’s Dana Bash that he would implore the president to reconsider pulling troops out of Syria:

“I’m asking the president to make sure that we have troops there to protect us…I’m going to ask the president to do something President Obama would never do: reconsider. This is being done by President Trump against sound military advice.”
