Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that withdrawing US troops from Syria could directly result in the deaths of Kurdish people there and that he plans to make a case to President Donald Trump today to reconsider his plans.
“There are three things important for this country. Number one, make sure that ISIS never comes back in Syria,” Graham said to CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union.”
“We need to keep our troops there. They’re inside the ten-yard line in defeating ISIS, but we’re not there yet. If we leave now, the Kurds are going to get slaughtered.”
