Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) lashed out at the Trump administration saying it paved the way for Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria and that it was “disingenuous” to be surprised by Ankara’s actions, The Hill reports.
Said Romney: “This was a decision by the administration which had the clearly observable result that we’re seeing. To have the vice president and the secretary of State going to meet with Erdoğan and suggesting that somehow we’re surprised by what’s happening is disingenuous.”
He added: “Very clearly it was a decision by the administration that which has led to what you’re seeing. This is a bit like the farmer locking the barn door after the horse has left.”Save to Favorites
