“Trump continues to recklessly abandon our allies and align with our adversaries. One phone call, and he’s impulsively handing over Syria to Turkey, Iran, and Russia. It’s a betrayal of America’s security interests and alliances, with potentially devastating consequences,” tweeted Jewish Democratic Council of America executive director Halie Soifer.

In a subsequent tweet, she posted: “Trump’s abandoning of the Kurds in northern Syria exposes the guiding principle of his foreign policy –> the furtherance of his own personal and political interests, combined with reckless impulse and ignorance. Our allies, including Israel, should take note.”
