Poor Trump. He keeps making an idiot of himself.
The latest case: Syria. Trump said the troops will be coming home. But that promise has suddenly changed, as I knew it would.
The troops will stay in Syria, he said this weekend.
“Ultimately some will be coming home. But we're going to be there and we're going to be staying… We have to protect Israel.“ https://t.co/wURYz9622G

So there it is. The US is in Syria for Israel, to watch Iran. Congress wants the troops to remain and Congress is owned in part—a large part—by Israel and its radical Likudniks, including Trump’s son-in-law.
