After killing, GOP skeptics still doubt Trump foreign policy
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump provoked biting criticism from fellow Republicans with his sudden decision this month to withdraw most U.S. troops from Syria.
But if he hoped to win a reprieve from GOP skeptics following the successful raid that resulted in the death of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, he may be disappointed.
While some party leaders and supporters are cheering his approach, others continue to doubt his policies in the Middle East.
Sue Wehnert is a 57-year old Republican in Annapolis, Maryland. She voted for Trump in 2016 and has no regrets. But she doesn’t buy the president’s argument that the al-Baghdadi mission validates his unconventional approach. She said she shakes her head at Trump’s handling of world affairs, including the Syria withdrawal.
