      WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has ordered a slowdown to the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Syria, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday.

      “I think we’re in a pause situation,” the South Carolina Republican said outside the White House after lunch with the president.

      Trump announced earlier this month that he was ordering the withdrawal of all the roughly 2,000 troops from war-torn Syria, with aides expecting it to take place swiftly. The president had declared victory over the Islamic State group in Syria, though pockets of fighting remain.

      Graham had been an outspoken critic of Trump’s decision, which had drawn bipartisan criticism. The announcement also had shocked lawmakers and American allies, including Kurds who have fought alongside the U.S. against the Islamic State group and face an expected assault by Turkey.

      It is foolish to believe him, even if he says rain is wet, without independent confirmation. Let me revise–it is always foolish to believe him.

        He has never seen a war he didn’t strongly endorse.

      never met a war he didn’t have to fight in that he didn’t love. He is a yellow rat bastard!
