The former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee took to Twitter to denounce the move by the president. Here is what he tweeted:
I generally support @POTUS on foreign policy & don’t want our troops fighting other nations’ wars, but a HUGE mistake to abandon Kurds. They’ve never asked us to do THEIR fighting-just give them tools to defend themselves. They have been faithful allies. We CANNOT abandon them.
