Barack Obama spent eight years making a mess out of America.
One disaster piled up on top of another.
But with this one order, Donald Trump just ended Barack Obama’s worst mistake.
Obama’s ridiculously weak foreign policy created the conditions for ISIS to grow and gain in strength.
By the time Trump took office, ISIS controlled a virtual caliphate.
But nearly two years after taking office Donald Trump just won a signature victory.
The President announced the military defeated ISIS in Syria and American troops would be coming home.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
The U.S. military is preparing to withdraw its forces from Syria, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday, a move that marks an abrupt reversal of the American military strategy in the Middle East.
U.S. officials began informing partners in northeastern Syria of their plans to begin an immediate pullout of American forces from the region where they have been trying to wrap up the campaign against Islamic State, the people said.
“The Pentagon has an order to move troops out of Syria as quickly as possible,” a U.S. official said.”
The rise of ISIS was as symbol of Obama’s inept leadership on the global stage.
Trump ran on putting American First in foreign policy.
And pulling our troops home from Syria after cleaning up Obama’s mess instead of engaging in another decade long nation building debacle will go a long way towards making good on that promise.
