Do you remember how hyped so many people on our side got about the 2018 midterm elections?
“WASHINGTON — The Senate, in a bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s foreign policy, voted overwhelmingly to advance legislation drafted by the majority leader to express strong opposition to the president’s withdrawal of United States military forces from Syria and Afghanistan.
The 68-to-23 vote to cut off debate ensures that the amendment, written by Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and backed by virtually every Senate Republican, will be added to a broader bipartisan Middle East policy bill expected to easily pass the Senate next week.
The vote was the second time in two months that a Republican-led Senate had rebuked Mr. Trump on foreign policy. In December, 56 senators voted to end American military assistance for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen in what was the strongest show of bipartisan defiance against Mr. Trump’s defense of the kingdom over the killing of a dissident journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. …”
There was a vote today in the Senate on President Trump’s plan to withdraw US troops from Syria and Afghanistan. Martha McSally (AZ), Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Josh Hawley (MO), Kevin Cramer (ND), Mitt Romney (UT), Mike Braun (IN), Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Rick Scott (FL) all voted in the Senate today with Mitch McConnell to STAY indefinitely in Syria and Afghanistan.
Note: Every Democrat who is running against Trump in 2020 voted against it.
Every potential 2020 Democratic candidate voted against Mitch McConnell's amendment condemning Trump's "precipitous withdrawals" from Syria and Afghanistan (Harris, Warren, Sanders, Gillibrand, Booker, Klobuchar, Merkley).
