Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., says President Donald Trump's handling of Turkey's attacks on Kurds in northern Syria weakens the United States in the "eyes of the world."
In an interview on the Fox Nation's "The Brian Kilmeade Show," the Air Force veteran said Trump's decision to yank U.S. troops from northern Syria will have lasting ill-effects.
"We've lost all leverage now . . . in the eyes of the world; it was a very weak move," he said. "And, I think just think the repercussions are going to reverberate for a very long time."
He added he had "never seen a decision have such immediate ramifications as this one."
Kinzinger on Wednesday tweeted his dismay about Trump's calling Turkey's incursion "not our problem."
"How is reconstituting ISIS, abandoning the Kurds, and green lighting a slaughter by the Turks not our concern?" he tweeted.
