Following his announcement that he is pulling US troops out of Syria, President Trump is forging ahead with a withdrawal from Afghanistan, according to multiple reports. The news has rocked the establishment, with the media, Democrats, and even Republicans going into full on panic mode.
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that "7,000 American troops will begin to return home from Afghanistan in the coming weeks." The number equates to 50 percent of all US troops stationed there.
"The move will come as the first stage of a phased drawdown and the start of a conclusion to the 17-year war that officials say could take at least many months," the report notes.
The move sent Lindsey Graham into meltdown, with the Republican Senator declaring that Trump is "paving the way toward a second 9/11."
