Sen. Rand Paul praises Trump’s willingness to exit Syria: ‘One of the reasons he won the election’

Sen. Rand Paul praises Trump’s willingness to exit Syria: ‘One of the reasons he won the election’, by Douglas Ernst.

The Republican’s colleagues, like Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Florida’s Marco Rubio, have warned Mr. Trump that he is making a giant blunder.

“This is a stain on the honor of the United States,” Mr. Graham said. …

Mr. Rubio told peers on Wednesday that the move is a “catastrophic mistake that will have grave consequences” for years to come.

Mr. Paul disagrees.

“It’s one of the reasons he won the election,” Mr. Paul told Fox of the president’s vow to withdraw from Syria. “He’s different than so many Republicans that want to be everywhere, all the time around the world. They want us to be the world’s policeman.”
