Senator Bob Corker spoke to reporters after his planned meeting with President Donald Trump was cancelled today, amid the shockwaves surrounding the President’s Syria withdrawal decision, and he expressed how stunned he and other Republicans are.
“I’ve never seen a decision like this since I’ve been here in 12 years, where nothing is communicated in advance and all of a sudden this type of massive decision takes place,” he said.
Corker not only said that pretty much every Republican in the Senate was caught off-guard, but he even went so far as to say this:
“Honestly, this makes what Obama did in Iraq––it’s replicating that, but in many ways it’s even worse.”
