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