George Conway: Trump’s Syria decision is a ‘colossal geopolitical blunder of historic significance’

WASHINGTON – George Conway, conservative lawyer and husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, slammed President Donald Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of northeastern Syria as making a “colossal geopolitical blunder of historic significance.”

In a series of tweets sent Monday, Conway, who is a consistent critic of the President, said Trump has “failed miserably” and is “incompetent and ignorant.”

“No amount of your desperate, whiny, and pathetic tweeting can undo that simple fact,” he said, quoting one of Trump’s tweets that claims he defeated “100% of the ISIS Caliphate.”

Trump’s decision has cleared the way for Turkey to launch a military offensive in the region, as it views a Kurdish militia that dominates the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces as a terrorist group.
