In a speech on the senate floor on Wednesday night, Graham, one of Trump’s closest allies in Congress, called “disastrous against our own national security” and a decision made “against sound military advice”. Graham said that this decision would make Americans around the world and here at home “more risky, no less”.

The South Carolina congressman said he was shocked by the decision and characterized the move as a betrayal of our allies in the region.

“We have been dishonest. This is a blow to the United States’ honor,” said Graham.

Graham, who said he had just returned from a trip to Afghanistan, said: “I have been in the military for quite some time and am very aware of the sacrifices required to travel abroad and serve in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. “

The Senate said that US deployed forces are necessary to keep the Americans safe and act as a “virtual wall.” He said they are “best hope we have to stop another 9/1

1, protecting ourselves and our allies.”

“I do not say we must be in Syria forever. I say it’s not time to leave,” Graham said.

Graham was one of a group of senators who wrote a letter to Trump on Wednesday night asking him to change course.

Republican sense Joni Ernst, Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton; Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen; and independent late Angus King sent the letter.

There they wrote: “If you decide to follow your decision to take our troops out of Syria, all remains of ISIS in Syria will surely renew and embellish their efforts in the region. However, ISIS is not the only threat . The brutal dictatorship in Bashar al Assad continues to weigh heavily on the Syrian people and we are afraid that a revocation of our troops can embrace Bashar al Assad to take further action to strengthen his power. “
