Trump Criticizes Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade for Questioning Syria Troop Withdrawal
President Donald Trump has criticized Fox News personality Brian Kilmeade on Twitter. The Fox & Friends host has been highly critical of Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of Northern Syria and abandon the Kurds, longtime U.S. allies.
“Brian Kilmeade over at Fox & Friends got it all wrong. We are not going into another war between people who have been fighting with each other for 200 years. Europe had a chance to get their ISIS prisoners, but didn’t want the cost,” Trump tweeted.
“‘Let the USA pay,’ they said,” Trump said.
“Kurds may be releasing some to get us involved. Easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came, but they should move quickly. Big sanctions on Turkey coming! Do people really think we should go to war with NATO Member Turkey? Never ending wars will end!”
“The same people who got us into the Middle East mess are the people who most want to stay there!” the President tweeted.
The same people who got us into the Middle East mess are the people who most want to stay there!

Kilmeade joined a chorus of conservative voices criticizing Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria. On Fox & Friends on Monday, Kilmeade asked Republican Representative Liz Cheney about the situation and outlined his opposition to the move once again.
