Mitt Romney is a Republican in name only, and nothing more.
Since getting into the Senate, with Trump’s endorsement, he has turned on the President.
And Trump is about to destroy Mitt Romney after he did the unthinkable.
It is the job of the President of the United States to make many foreign policy decisions.
As the Commander in Chief, Trump has the ability to lead the military through its actions around the world.
And in recent days, Trump made the decision to pull troops out of Northern Syria.
His decision is following through on his promise to cut down on U.S. military intervention overseas.
And considering that the U.S. has never declared war officially in the region, he feels as though U.S. troops shouldn’t be there.
There are already Kurdish fighters in the region, operating with weapons and training from the United States, who are able to handle their own affairs without U.S. ground support.
Despite this, many on the left and in the establishment wing of the Republican Party are freaking out.
The leading voice challenging Trump on this issue is newly-elected Sen. Mitt Romney.
He took to Twitter to paint the decision as a “betrayal.”
“The President’s decision to abandon our Kurd allies in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal. It says that America is an unreliable ally; it facilitates ISIS resurgence; and it presages another humanitarian disaster,” Romney said.
But Romney seems to be in the minority when it comes to Republicans.
Fellow Utah Sen. Mike Lee came out in defense of Trump, stating that with no war authorized, the U.S. has no reason to remain in the region.
“Congress has never declared war or authorized the use of military force in Syria. While I remain concerned with Turkey’s behavior and the threat they pose to the Kurds, I support President Trump’s decision to draw down U.S. armed forces from Syria,” Lee said.
Mike Lee actually gets what Trump is trying to do.
For too long, many Republicans have equated strength with the sheer level of force from the U.S. military.
They felt that if the United States doesn’t operate like the world’s police force, the U.S. will not remain as the most powerful country in the world.
But President Trump understands that the United States should always be willing to defend their allies when necessary, but that we should only exert that force when necessary.
This is a stark difference from Barack Obama, who only wanted to apologize around the world, and wasn’t willing to defend the U.S., even when necessary.
Romney has continually undermined President Trump since he got into office.
After getting Trump’s endorsement for his 2018 Senate run, Romney quickly became a major Trump enemy after he got into the Senate.
Trump even recently stated that Utah voters should re-call Romney.
Do you think voters in Utah should re-call Mitt Romney?
