Like a lot of us, Donald Trump is reportedly strongly influenced by the last person with whom he spoke. That’s particular risky if it’s someone like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., or Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the topic is withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria.

After all, Sen. Paul is an isolationist who likely recommended during a recent round of golf that the President declare victory against ISIS and abandon Syria. And President Erdogan is those jihadists’ ally, not ours. He probably warned Mr. Trump recently to pull out ahead of his country’s imminent invasion of northern Syria.

The commander in chief needs to listen to his national security team, instead. U.S. special forces of 2,200 in Syria help thwart the ambitions there of those hostile to America and Israel like ISIS, Turkey, Iran, Russia, and the Syrian government.

They should continue doing so.
