According to Axios, Trump called President Erdogan's bluff regarding Turkey's planned invasion of northern Syria and got it catastrophically wrong. What began as a pull back of some 50 to 100 U.S. soldiers near the border with Turkey turned into hasty White House order for a full retreat with a withdrawal order for all U.S. service members - around 1,000 - in Syria, east of the Euphrates River. Matthew RJ Brodsky joins Derricke Dennis on i24News "Take :30" to discuss how on every conceivable level, these developments are terrible for the United States.
