Gutfeld defends Trump’s ‘simple logic’ on Syria: Death of U.S. troops last thing he will accept

President Donald Trump’s decision to pull troops from Syria has people on the left screaming once again about the end of the world, but it also has some on the right — like Lindsey Graham — dissenting from the administration.

Others, however, have stood up to defend Trump’s long-held promise to end the United States’ presence in the Middle East after a long two decades of getting involved in civil war conflicts that have very little to do with us.

“The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld broke down Trump’s decision as only he can. Describing Trump as “America’s cab driver” — meaning the president has the same opinions you’d find from a blue-collar, tax-paying American — Gutfeld stated simply that Trump is putting American interests first because he would rather see Kurds involved in their own war die in combat than American troops.

“His simple logic — and I don’t mean simple as stupid, I mean that it’s plain as day — our men aren’t going to get killed,” Gutfeld said on “The Five” after a back-and-forth with Juan Williams and Dana Perino. “You can get mad at him and disagree with him, but he will accept the death of the Kurds before he accepts the death of American troops.”

Gutfeld, who has always been open about being a Libertarian-leaning Republican, makes an excellent point here in pointing out how Trump was the peace candidate from the beginning and his foreign policy decisions tie in directly with his America first message.

Gutfeld was met with opposition from Williams, one of Fox’s more left-leaning hosts.

Williams said he doesn’t want a “cab driver” as a president, but would rather see a “leader.” He also said pulling out of Syria creates more danger than it avoids.

Gutfeld, saying he sees “suspicion” in arguments against Trump’s decision, theorized that the buildup around potential Syria consequences is simply a political move against Trump and another example of the left losing their minds.

“This is obviously the worst thing that ever happened since yesterday when the worst thing that ever happened, happened,” he said.

“The fact is, every day with these people, it’s the worst thing,” Gutfeld said. “Their hair is on fire all the time. You can see it from space.”

Gutfeld then went on to make a simple suggestion: “At some point, you have to come home.”

A recent White House meeting on the situation in Syria led to top Dems like Nancy Pelosi reportedly storming off.

The president even posted a photo of Pelosi’s “unhinged meltdown” to Twitter.
