Trump Disgustingly Claims Dead American Soldiers Support His Decision To Surrender In Syria

Trump Syria

President Donald Trump used dead soldiers as props on Wednesday afternoon to excuse his snap decision to surrender in Syria after once again declaring victory over ISIS.

American forces have worked with our Kurdish allies in the region for years to push ISIS fighters back, driving them far beyond their original territory, but all of that is about to change because Trump has decided to pull our military out of Syria despite the fact that ISIS has not been defeated yet.

In a short Twitter post earlier in the day, Trump declared victory in Syria and announced a withdrawal, which many have criticized as being a surrender that will make Russia and Iran very happy.

The people of Syria are being forced to flee their homeland because of ISIS and Russian support for dictator Bashar al-Assad. The United States military withdrawing now puts liberated parts of the region at risk for re-occupation by ISIS, or to be pillaged by Russian and Syrian government troops.

Everyone from lawmakers on Capitol Hill like Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to retired military leaders such as Lt. General Mark Hertling and national security experts have all criticized Trump’s decision and refute his claim that ISIS is defeated.

In a new effort to defend his decision, Trump sickeningly claimed that fallen soldiers support him after bragging about a so-called victory that doesn’t exist.

“And I’ll tell you, they’re up there looking down on us,” Trump said while pointing up to the sky. “And there is nobody happier or more proud of their families to put them in a position where they’ve done such good for so many people…We won. And that’s the way we want and that’s the way they want it.”

Here’s the video via Twitter.

Again, American forces have not defeated ISIS. But pulling them out now gives ISIS a chance to regroup and retake territory, which would erase all the progress the United States military and our allies worked so hard to achieve.

Twitter users even pointed out that statements from Trump’s own officials contradict him.

They also thrashed him for daring to speak for fallen soldiers in support of himself.

If anything, Trump has dishonored the fallen, who would want the mission they died for to be seen through to real victory and peace. Trump’s decision will only make things worse by allowing ISIS to regroup and give more influence to Russia and Iran, all while our allies are left to be slaughtered. This is a foreign policy travesty and one of the worst military blunders in our history. And it’s all on Trump and the Republicans who continue to allow him to remain in office.
