'A stain on America's honor': Lindsey Graham says Trump's Syria pullout abandons Kurds, helps ISIS

WASHINGTON – Calling it a "stain on America's honor," Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday denounced President Donald Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of northeastern Syria as Turkey prepares a military assault against Kurdish fighters who helped the U.S. battle the Islamic State.


Graham phoned into "Fox & Friends," which Trump is known to watch regularly, to express his displeasure at the "impulsive decision by the president," calling it "short-sighted and irresponsible." He said the move has "undone all the gains we've made" and "thrown the region into further chaos."

"This to me is just unnerving to its core," Graham said.

The Kurdish fighters, America's chief ally in battling Islamic State terrorists in Syria, said in a statement that their U.S. allies "did not fulfill their obligations," as U.S. troops began to withdraw from their positions ahead of the expected Turkish military assault.
