While sending 14,000 troops to Saudi Arabia, Trump claims to reduce Middle East troop presence.

I know it's shocking but the Trump has lied to us. He claimed he wanted to reduce U.S. troop presence in the Middle East as his rationale for moving U.S. troops out of northern Syria, thus allowing Turkey to overtake the Kurdish population who, subsequently, needed to retreat from the area for their for safety.

President Donald Trump has insisted that his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from the Syrian border with Turkey is a step toward getting the United States out of "endless" wars.

But one critic of the move says Trump is breaking his own promise by sending troops back into other parts of the Middle East.

"That is one reason we're seeing so much increased tension in the region and that President Trump has sent 14,000 American troops to the region since May," McGurk told MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Oct. 20. "So he can't tell his political rallies that he's getting troops out of endless wars when he's sending 14 times the amount back into the region."


Clearly, reducing U.S. troop presence in the Middle East was not the objective in the Trump's decision in Syria.

BTW, Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor under President Obama, this morning on "Face the Nation" pointed this out and I'm saddened that this is the first I'd heard of this....thanks MSM.
