Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday admonished the White House for its controversial decision to allow Turkey to invade northern Syria and potentially wipe out U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters — criticizing the maneuver as “a disaster in the making” in a rare public break with President Donald Trump.

“I don’t know all the details regarding President Trump’s decision in northern Syria,” the South Carolina Republican wrote on Twitter, adding that he was in the process of scheduling a phone call with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and warning: “If press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Graham, a vocal defender of the president and frequent adviser on matters of foreign policy, predicted the administration’s move would ensure a “comeback” of ISIS, force the Kurds “to align with” Syrian President Bashar Assad and Iran, damage the relationship between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government and Congress, and become “a stain on America’s honor for abandoning the Kurds.”

Graham tweeted that this new move:

  • * Ensures ISIS comeback.
  • * Forces Kurds to align with Assad and Iran.
  • * Destroys Turkey’s relationship with U.S. Congress.
  • * Will be a stain on America’s honor for abandoning the Kurds.

“Also, if this plan goes forward will introduce Senate resolution opposing and asking for reversal of this decision. Expect it will receive strong bipartisan support,” he vowed.

Graham spoke out on Fox & Friends Monday morning, slamming the president’s decision, and said this will lead to a resurgence of ISIS.
