Senior Republican senator says he will ask Trump to rethink Syria pullout

Senior Republican senator says he will ask Trump to rethink Syria pulloutSenator Lindsey Graham warned that removing all U.S. forces would hurt U.S. security by allowing Islamic State to rebuild, betraying U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters battling remnants of the militant group, also known as ISIS, and enhancing Iran’s ability to threaten Israel. The South Carolina Republican said he would ask Trump “to sit down with his generals and reconsider how to do this. Don’t turn Syria over to the Iranians.” “I want to fight the war in the enemy’s backyard, not ours,” Graham said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union show.
