Senate Republicans joined Democrats in a rare GOP rebuke of President Trump’s plan to pull out of Syria and cut the 14,000 US troops in Afghanistan by half.
Senators voted 68-23 to close debate on an amendment to the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act, which affirms the US commitment to Israeli security, deepens ties with Jordan and holds those responsible for crimes against Syrian civilians accountable.
The article goes on to state the following:
South Dakota Sen. John Thune, the No. 2 Senate Republican, said the resolution “reflects the thinking of a lot of our members,” signaling that the GOP is growing bolder in challenging the commander in chief’s foreign policy positions.
My amendment to S.1 would allow Senators to go on the record about what the United States should be doing in Syria and Afghanistan. ISIS and al Qaeda have yet to be defeated and American national security interests require continued commitment to our missions there.
