This is one of the worst decisions in decades,” Schumer said. “We understand here in New York better than any other.”

The Senate Minority Leader’s comments come almost a week after the house a bipartisan resolution against Trump approved the decision to withdraw nearly 1,000 armed forces of the North-Eastern border with Syria-a movement widely seen as a task of the Kurdish troops.


Schumer urged Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. To bring last week, the house resolution to the Senate for discussion and vote, but on Tuesday, said that “while the leader McConnell initially seemed interested, he seems to go down a different path.”

Sen. Jack Reed, D-RI, the top Democrat in the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the government has “no plan” to deal with the growing tensions in Syria. “This is, make it up as you go.”

“The President should be added to the revoke the invitation to a meeting with Erdogan in November,” Reed, as the Turkish leader is also expected that the White house visit, in the coming weeks.


“We will be forced to send more troops if ISIS raises the black and the white flag again,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, said. “I’m tired of Trump wrap themselves in the flag in the morning and the task of our troops by the afternoon.”
