WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling for a vote this week on President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. 

The New York Democrat said yesterday he believes Trump’s decision could put the United States at risk of a terror attack. 

Schumer says his proposed resolution would be bipartisan and have a plan to beat ISIS. The president said he decided to withdraw the troops because it’s time to get the United States out of endless wars. 

California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is predicting long-lasting implications following the removal of U.S. troops from northern Syria.

“The fact that the Kurds are now entertaining going to the Russians to protect them because the Americans wouldn’t, this is an unmitigated disaster,” Schiff said on CBS’ Face the Nation.

NBC is reporting this morning that Kurdish forces are making a deal with the Syrian Army to counter a Turkish invasion.

Schiff is among the prominent political figures who believe ISIS will soon resurge due to the decision to withdraw troops from the area. That’s a sentiment shared by several Republicans, such as Sen. Lindsay Graham.

Indiana’s senator, Mike Braun, is backing the president’s decision. Braun said Trump is living up to a campaign promise.

“President Trump ran on ‘why should we be the world’s policemen?’ We’re running trillion-dollar deficits and there is no mention of the United Nations,” Braun said Friday. “Why should we put our soldiers in the crossfire of something that’s not going to be solved anyway?”

According to Schiff, the United States may not have any foreign allies after Trump’s presidency.
