President Donald Trump Monday, in a series of tweets, defended his decision to pull troops out of Syria, claiming that if anyone else but him had accomplished what he had against ISIS, they would be declared a "national hero."

"If anybody but Donald Trump did what I did in Syria, which was an ISIS loaded mess when I became President, they would be a national hero," the president said. "ISIS is mostly gone, we’re slowly sending our troops back home to be with their families, while at the same time fighting ISIS remnants."

"I campaigned on getting out of Syria and other places," Trump continued. "Now when I start getting out the Fake News Media, or some failed Generals who were unable to do the job before I arrived, like to complain about me & my tactics, which are working. Just doing what I said I was going to do!" He continues, "Except the results are FAR BETTER than I ever said they were going to be! I campaigned against the NEVER ENDING WARS, remember!"

On Sunday, retired four-star Gen. Stanley McChrystal told ABC News he finds Trump "immoral and dishonest" and disagreed with Trump's claims that ISIS has been defeated.

"I think ISIS is as much an idea as it is a number of ISIS fighters," McChrystal said. "There's a lot of intelligence that says there are actually more ISIS fighters around the world now than there were a couple of years ago.”

Trump returned to the topic an hour later, expressing frustration:

"I am the only person in America who could say that, 'I’m bringing our great troops back home, with victory,' and get BAD press. It is Fake News and Pundits who have FAILED for years that are doing the complaining. If I stayed in Endless Wars forever, they would still be unhappy!"
