Democrats condemn President Donald Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops back from northern Syria, saying that he had endangered America’s longtime Kurdish allies while empowering foes Russia and Syria, Reuters reports.

“I think that we ought to get out of the Middle East,” said Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts. “I don’t think we should have troops in the Middle East”.

Fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, criticized Trump for first signaling the withdrawal in a tweet.

“What he has done is wreck our ability to do foreign policy, to do military policy, because nobody in the world will believe this pathological liar,” Sanders said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is considered one of the favourites of the 2020 US Presidential race, said that he would have protected the Kurds, if he was president.

“It has been the most shameful thing that any president has done in modern history in terms of foreign policy,” he said.
As we reported earlier, President Donald Trump has ordered all U.S. troops to withdraw from the country’s north to avoid a bloody conflict between Turkey and U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters that “gets worse by the hour."

This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper.
