Peter Galbraith on Trump's Syria Decision

Clip: 10/08/2019 | 2m 53s Video has closed captioning.

President Trump is facing a bipartisan backlash, not over Ukraine, but his decision to pull U.S. troops from northern Syria. To some, it’s seen as an abandonment of the Kurds who fought for the U.S. in the battle against ISIS. Turkish forces, who view Kurds as terrorists, want to move into the territory and push them out. Peter Galbraith joins the program fresh from traveling to Syria himself.
