Fury over Trump Syria decision grows | TheHill

Democrats in Congress are vowing to quickly slap new sanctions on Ankara and formally oppose President Trump‘s decision to pull U.S. troops from northern Syria following Turkey’s military offensive against Kurdish forces loyal to the United States.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spoke Monday with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), an ally of Trump who is fiercely critical of his policy on Syria, about the need for bipartisan legislation.

“As we find ourselves in a situation where the president gave a green light to the Turks to bomb and effectively unleashed ISIS, we must have a stronger sanctions package than what the White House is suggesting,” said Pelosi.
