Joe Scarborough: Any Republicans that Keep Trump in Power ‘Own the Resurgence of ISIS’

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has strongly criticized Republicans who continue to support President Donald Trump following his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Northern Syria. Turkey has already moved into the region and started attacking the Kurds, key U.S. allies in defeating ISIS.

“And let me just say what every single Republican knows,” Scarborough said. “What every Republican on Capitol Hill knows. Donald Trump is not well. Donald Trump’s not emotionally fit to be president, Republicans, and you know it.”

“He’s not mentally fit to be President of the United States right now and you know it. There are allies that sacrificed their lives, sacrificed their everything for us who are on the run this morning, who are bleeding out, who are dying because Donald Trump decided on a whim to release them.”

“There are women and children once again in danger of being raped and brutalized and tortured by ISIS. Donald Trump suggests that we can just let ISIS go and they can go back — there are so many disturbing things, Mika, it is more obvious than ever, Donald Trump is neither emotionally or mentally fit to be President of the United States. That is without debate, it really is. Just look at all the actions over the past several weeks and it just keeps getting worse. And the consequences are growing grimmer by the day.

“Any Republican that keeps Donald Trump in office, every Republican that allows him to remain commander-in-chief, they, like Donald Trump, own the resurgence of ISIS. They, like Donald Trump, own the collapse of long-time alliances.”

“Donald Trump said alliances were easy yesterday. You know what? They’re not. They are back breaking work. They are extraordinary work. Mika, your father knew that as well as anybody in his generation. Alliances, like trade wars, are hard. But we have a president that doesn’t understand that and because that every day Americans and their closest allies are suffering.”
