Mayor Pete: Consequences of Trump’s Syria Decision ‘Could Last for Decades’
>> My reaction is those kinds of phrases have the darkest Rhines in world history and we don’t talk about cleaning out people when there is an — ethnic minority and atrocity against minorities right now. The security concerns of Turkey could be taken seriously without green lighting the kind of thing that this president has allowed but the real consequence of this isn’t just what is happening to Kurds or what is happening in Syria. It is what is happening to the United States of America. Because when American presidents, when an American president talks like that, when an American president pulls the rug out from under people who trusted us with their lives, that is going to have implications for American interests all over the world. Anyplace in the world where we need someone to trust us, to go out on a limb, to fight alongside our troops, it is going to be harder. And that could last for decades, and will make America less safe.
