President Trump: US 'should have never been in the Middle East'

Trump's fast-tracking of oil pipelines hits legal roadblocks

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the U.S. military becoming involved in the Middle East was the "worst decision ever made" and that he was ensuring the safe return of troops.

Trump's rhetoric on Turkey's looming operation in Syria has also swayed in the past days.

"I stand with [President Trump] today as he once again fulfills his promises to stop our endless wars and have a true America First foreign policy", Paul said.

"I held off this fight for nearly three years, but it is time to get out of these ridiculous endless wars...and bring our soldiers home", the president emphasized.

Trump argued on Twitter that "GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST IS THE WORST DECISION EVER MADE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY!"

Turkey MUST take over captured ISIS fighters that Europe refused to have returned. Russia and Iran, who serve as co-guarantors of the Syrian peace process along with Turkey, have called for calm in the region, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov calling on Damascus and Kurdish forces to hold a dialogue to resolve the border situation. This action imperils American security and that of our allies. "Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision", she said.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Trump cast his decision as in line with his long-held belief that the United States can not be the world's policeman and must bring some troops home.

But it comes as he needs as much Republican support as possible to fight an impeachment inquiry launched by Democrats who control the U.S. House of Representatives based on his attempt to get Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The US has about 1,000 troops in Syria and about 5,200 in neighboring Iraq.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a close Trump ally, stepped up his criticism of the president Wednesday, telling "Fox & Friends" that if Trump "follows through with this, it would be the biggest mistake of his presidency". He also said he would lead an effort in Congress to "make Erdogan pay a heavy price", referring to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
