Trump has received criticism for
his order to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.
Critics scoffed at his characterization
of the situation as a "big success.".
In a White House speech following the
announcement, Trump touted that
Turkey's five-day cease-fire in Syria
had lasted "beyond most expectations.".
Russia and Iran are
both thought to have gained
footing in Syria since Trump's
withdrawal order from the war-torn nation.
Trump's top envoy to Syria
has already expressed concerns
that Turkey has committed war
crimes against Kurdish forces.
We handed (the Kurdish fighters) over to be slaughtered … with no warning and for no good reason.
