Let's ask @SenatorRomney some questions:

Senator, where are the videos of Iranians advancing with the Syrian Arab Army?

@SenatorRomney Senator, how did the Syrian Arab Army arrive in Manbij so quickly?

The SAA was in Idlib, and then two days later, it was in Manbij.

If everyone was shocked by our withdrawal, why does it appear that the SAA was prepositioned?
@SenatorRomney Senator, why did Erdogan say YESTERDAY that he would never agree to a ceasefire, but today he agreed to one?

The Turks say it's a "pause," but that's semantics.

It's a ceasefire.
@SenatorRomney Senator, how did the Kurds work out a deal with the Syrians in one day?

We're told that Trump's decision came out of the blue.

The Kurds and Assad were deadly enemies the day before Trump's announcement.
@SenatorRomney Senator, how is Russia's hand strengthened?

The Russians ACHIEVED nothing. We walked away, and the Syrians and Kurds made a deal.

Syria has absolutely no ability to take back the territory the Kurds hold. The two sides are now on an even footing.
@SenatorRomney Senator, have you looked at Iraq recently?

Have you seen the aftermath of our 2003 invasion?


@SenatorRomney Senator, what makes you think that @realDonaldTrump made his decision in a vacuum?

Did it enter your head that the president JUST MIGHT HAVE LISTENED to the locals?

Why is this concept so hard for American politicians to grasp?
@SenatorRomney @realDonaldTrump Senator, WE DON'T OWN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Trump is the first American president to do as the locals ask.

I don't have time to school you on the reality of Syria. You missed out because you were busy losing an election.
@SenatorRomney @realDonaldTrump Senator, President Trump is cleaning up the mess that his predecessors made.

As a country, we're lucky to have him. He's unique.

You, on the other hand, are a garden-variety professional politician. In other words, you're in no position to criticize.
