‘Wicked and Unjust’: Evangelical Leaders Respond to Trump’s Decision to Pull Troops Out of Syria

Christian leaders who have thus far been stalwart supporters of President Donald Trump are very concerned about the leader’s announcement Sunday to pull American troops out of northern Syria.

Trump revealed his foreign policy move over the weekend, when the White House announced the U.S. would be pulling forces out of the region, leaving a vacuum for Turkey to invade, which potentially places Christians in the area in grave danger.

The president took to Twitter Monday to defend his decision, arguing in a thread of posts it’s “time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home.” He went on to write the U.S. was only supposed to be in Syria a very short time, but “we stayed and got deeper and deeper into battle with no aim in sight.”
