“Everything was clear even after Trump’s first announcement that he was withdrawing troops from Syria. Then he met with rejection of this phenomenon by the political elite. Almost the entire US political elite believes that the withdrawal of troops from Syria is a recognition of their defeat, withdrawal with shame and flight. Neither Republicans nor Democrats can accept this situation, ”Bruter said.
According to him, in case of withdrawal of the American military contingent, "the influence of the United States in the region will decrease."
“McConnell simply expressed the opinion that is in the Republican faction in the Senate. Therefore, we can assume that Trump’s relationship will deteriorate not only with the Democrats, but also with his own party. In the end, the American leader’s habit of doing everything as he sees fit, without looking at someone else’s opinion, has already led to a serious internal crisis. And I think that this crisis will not be in his favor in the future, ”the expert believes.
Earlier, McConnell criticized Trump's intention to withdraw the military from Syria, calling this step a strategic mistake.
According to the senator, the withdrawal of troops from Syria would jeopardize the security of the American people and the United States, as well as "encourage enemies and weaken important alliances."
