President Trump Celebrates Peace In Syria, Says U.S. Had To Show “Tough Love”

President Trump has declared today to be a “Great day for civilization”, as news of a cease-fire in Syria had been confirmed by VP Mike Pence and Sec. of State Mike Pompeo.

Democrats and Republicans alike were upset with President Trump’s decision to remove what little military presence remained in Northern Syria last week, claiming that doing so was abandoning our allies, the Kurds.

Now, it would appear that Turkey has agreed to a 120 hour cease-fire, allowing the Kurds to pull back from the 20-mile “safe zone” along the Syrian-Turkey border.

“This is a great day for civilization,” the president tweeted. “I am proud of the United States for sticking by me in following a necessary, but somewhat unconventional, path. People have been trying to make this “Deal” for many years. Millions of lives will be saved. Congratulations to ALL!”

The president went on to say that this deal never would have happened had the U.S. stayed the course.

“This deal could NEVER have been made 3 days ago. There needed to be some “tough” love in order to get it done. Great for everybody. Proud of all!

“Turkey and the United States agree on the priority of respecting vulnerable human life, human rights, and particularly the protection of religious and ethnic communities in the region,” the vice president added.

Vice President Pence said that the president’s goal was to end the violence, and this meeting did just that.

“We think the agreement today first ends the violence, which is what President Trump sent us here to do,” Pence said. “We achieved that.”

If the cease-fire leads to peace, it could be a black eye for all of the politicians calling for continued occupation in the Middle East. The President said that he wants to bring troops home, and in case the rest of D.C. hasn’t noticed, Donald Trump tends to deliver on his promises.
