President Trump has resistance from both sides met after his decision to withdraw troops from Northern Syria, but some of the rhetoric from the Democrats is almost the opposite of what came out of the party-members, as President Barack Obama’s troops from Iraq and moved.

California Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for example, the vocal opponent of Trump’s withdrawal of troops, to support Obama’s efforts, almost exactly eight years later.


“As the war in Iraq is coming to an end, it is my hope that this conflict as a solemn reminder of the cost of the war,” Waters said in a statement. Oct. 21, 2011. “We need to carefully rethink our approach to national security and how we deal with the role of the United States in the promotion of international peace and security. If we remain a leader in the world, we must always determine our best judgment as to when and how we engage other Nations and other stakeholders, particularly if we consider the use of military force.”

Waters’ approach to the role of the United States in the Affairs of the world similar to trump’s wars of recent warnings against “the fight against other people’s.”

Cut-Oct. 7, 2019 and water trump blasted for leaving the Kurdish forces to fend for themselves against the Turkish attacks.

“If the United States leaves the Kurds, those brave allies will never trust us again,” said Waters in a statement, adding that “Trump is a betrayal of the Kurds was a gift to Russia, Iran and ISIS.”

On the same day, Pelosi came out against Trump, warning that leaving Northern Syria, ISIS, a resurgence.


“This reckless, misguided decision undermines the efforts of our brave servicemembers and our allies to the end of the ISIS tyranny,” she said.

But while the Republicans had similar concerns about a withdrawal from Iraq in 2011, Pelosi, praised Obama “for a promise, and a promise kept, to bring honor to the U.S.-Iraq security agreement and the wishes of the American people to all of our troops home by the end of this year.”

Pelosi stormed out of a meeting with Trump Wednesday after what it said was a “meltdown” of the President.

One of the Democratic leading candidates for the 2020 presidential nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was also critical of Trump, in spite of the historically anti-war.

“You don’t turn your back on an ally, that the 11,000 troops in the fight against terrorism through a tweet and a discussion with Erdogan,” Sanders ABC’s George Stephanopoulos said. This criticism came in spite of Sanders ‘ confirmation that “I am a strong opponent of endless wars.”

This position was made clear in 2011, when Sanders Obama supports Iraq withdrawal.

“I welcome the President’s decision and endorsing that position for a while,” adding that, “Now is the time to use our troops home, reduce military spending, and these funds to create jobs by rebuilding the infrastructure, and the reduction of our state debt.”

On Thursday, Trump vented about democratic criticism. “I’m the only person who will fight for the security of our troops and bring them home from the ridiculous & expensive Endless Wars, and to be despised. Democrats always well-liked, the location, ‘ve taken until I get it,” he said.

The Republicans were also critical of trump, with 129 GOP members vote for a resolution in opposition to the outlet, joining a unanimous Democratic contingent. Sen. Lindsey Graham was particularly vocal, accusing leading Trump to want the senator to “stay in the Middle East for the next 1,000 years.”


Graham, however, was not a supporter of Obama, and lumped in to make Trump and his predecessor, what he believes, that the critical foreign policy error.

“President Trump said EXACTLY what was said to President Obama, before he withdrew them from Iraq,” Graham tweeted Wednesday. “He seems quite bent on making the same mistakes in Syria, as President Obama was, in Iraq.”
