Trump Adviser Defends Syria Withdrawal

Stephen Miller, one of President Trump’s top adviser, was on CNN defending the Syria withdrawal that caused General Mattis to resign. The Daily Caller reports:

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller appeared on CNN to defend President Trump’s potential Syria withdrawal and attack media outlets that are suddenly “supporters of every entanglement in the Middle East.”

Miller’s comments came during Thursday night’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” on CNN.

“The media that’s having this hysterical reaction to James Mattis retiring is the same media in many cases — the same politicians in many cases — who cheered our nation into a war in Iraq that turned out to be an absolute catastrophe,” Miller told CNN host Wolf Blitzer, responding to a question about Mattis’ retirement and the question of whether it was at least partially spurred by Trump’s Syria policy. “This president got elected to get our foreign policy back on the right track after years of being adrift. One foreign policy blunder after another in Iraq and Afghanistan and Libya hasn’t worked out for our national interest.”

Stating that the night would include “no policy announcements,” but rather a “big picture” view, Miller spoke “of a country that through several administrations had an absolutely catastrophic foreign policy that cost trillions and trillions of dollars and thousands and thousands of lives that made the Middle East more unstable and more dangerous.”

Wars have to end one day, and now that ISIS is defeated, it’s time to come home.
