2020 Democratic presidential candidate South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, accused President Donald Trump of "making America less safe" by withdrawing troops from Syria.

On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “State of the Union,” Buttigieg slammed the president's move citing "security concerns."

Buttigieg said:

“My reaction is those kinds of phrases have the darkest rhymes in world history."

"We don’t talk about cleaning out people, especially when there is an ethnic minority that has faced atrocities and appears to be facing crimes against humanity and atrocities right now.”

He added:

“The security concerns of Turkey could be taken seriously without green lighting the kind of thing that this president has allowed, but the real consequence of this isn’t just what is happening to Kurds or what is happening in Syria."

"It is what is happening to the United States of America."

"Because when American presidents, when an American president talks like that, when an American president pulls the rug out from under people who trusted us with their lives, that is going to have implications for American interests all over the world," he continued.

"Anyplace in the world where we need someone to trust us, to go out on a limb, to fight alongside our troops, it is going to be harder, and that could last for decades, and will make America less safe.”

On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced they had secured a cease-fire agreement between Turkey and Kurds, shortly after meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara.

The deal is for a 120-hour cease-fire, at which Kurdish-led forces could pull back in the time frame.

Turkish military operations under the recent offensive known as Operation Peace Spring will halt in Syria during that time.

The operation will come to an end upon the completion of the Kurdish withdrawal, as per terms of the deal.

During a press conference while in Turkey, Pence said:

“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."
