This senate that can’t repeal Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood, or pass a budget. But God help you if you want to bring our boys home. They’ll lock shields and fight like lions for the right to kill your son in Afghanistan.

He’s not wrong: Suddenly, when we finally have a President trying to end wars and withdraw troops, the Senate miraculously rallies to act, to wrongly try to stop wars from ending.

I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the “Endless Wars” of unlimited spending and death. During my campaign I said, very strongly, that these wars must finally end. We spend $50 Billion a year in Afghanistan and have hit them so hard that we are now talking peace…

We stand with you @realDonaldTrump! Time to declare victory, end these wars and focus on rebuilding our own homeland. Don’t listen to the naysayers in the swamp, you are making the right decision!

 

President Trump is ENDING the WARS: “These wars must finally end.” “It is now time to start coming home.”

President Donald Trump reasserted his promise on Friday to withdraw the United States from conflicts in Afghanistan and Syria.
“I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the ‘Endless Wars’ of unlimited spending and death,” Trump wrote on Twitter, recalling his campaign promise.

The president reminded Americans that they were spending $50 billion a year in Afghanistan, but he noted that peace talks were on the table.

“It is now time to start coming home and, after many years, spending our money wisely,” Trump said. “Certain people must get smart!”

Trump noted approvingly that peace talks were underway in Afghanistan and that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) was nearly eliminated in Syria.

“Syria was loaded with ISIS until I came along. We will soon have destroyed 100% of the Caliphate, but will be watching them closely,” he wrote.

Trump’s desire to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Syria has been cooled by the National Security Establishment in his administration. Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, and H.R. McMaster, former National Security Council adviser, repeatedly warned Trump not to make a swift withdrawal from the Middle East.

The president also discussed in a New York Times interview his willingness to end the wars in the Middle East.

“We’re involved in wars that are 6,000 miles away. We’re involved in wars where it’s just absolutely insane what we’re doing, and the money we’re spending, where in Afghanistan, we’re spending $50 billion,” he said. “That’s more than most countries spend for everything.”
