What do yu think of Trump's Christmas gift?
It is pretty clear to everyone, including a LOT of Republicans and secretary of defense, Mattis, that Trump's pulling the US military out of Syria was a gift to Putin. Does it not appear that Trump needs to pay up what he owes to Putin quickly, before he gets kicked out of the white hou

Putin, Iran and Turkey will be well-pleased. Putin will have a free hand in Syria (they're already building bases there) Iran will have an overland route to ship weapons to Hezbollah, and Turkey will be able to wipe out those pesky Kurds, who happen to be US allies.
Trump must still be hoping for that Tower in Moscow.

Don't forget his gifts to the Taliban and Iran.
Remember Iran? That country which was so terrible, we couldn't possibly give them back their own money?

Yep , it's definitely the "Season for Giving". Last year it was a big wet kiss to the wealthy GOP donors , this year it's a big wet hug and kiss for al-Assad , Iran , Turkey and yes , BFF Putin. But IMO , it goes a bit deeper then that.
Trumpy made a public promise last October for a Middle Class Tax Cut. IMO , our Liar in Chief sees this Xmas Gift to our enemies as leverage to compel his new DEMOCRATIC HOUSE to make good on his promise by arguing next year that since surrendering the fight against ISIS in Syria , a MC tax cut is in order.
In effect Trumpy will offer a bribe to the US taxpayer for surrendering the ME to Putin , al-Assad and Erdogan. All power hungry autocrats , like himself. "The Art of the Deal".

Wait. WHY do we still need those 2,000 advisers in Syria? We don't. They're no longer needed. Trump's efforts...unlike Obama's...have all but wiped out ISIS. It is time to pull these men and women out and go on to other efforts. As to Putin's ambitions in Syria, I don't give a crap. "Here Vlad, here's a steaming pile of dysfunctional dog crap run by a psychopath. Knock yourself out." NO ONE cares!

It doesn't surprise me. Trump's current priorities are 1) Himself 2) His kids 3) Putin 4) KFC 5) McDonald's 6) America.
