Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) is standing alongside key congressional Republicans and pundits in questioning President Trump’s decision to order U.S. troops to step aside in Kurdistan and allow Turkey to walk in conduct military operations against Syria.

“Reckless and dangerous decision to abandon SDF. Kurds have been critical US partners and most effective in fight against ISIS,” said Deutch “Again, POTUS makes a major policy decision after phone call w/ foreign leader that ignores advice of our own military leaders & facts on ground.”

Deutch also warns that this move could destabilize the region and quite possibly lead to the release of detained ISIS fighters.
