Scaramucci: Trump doesn't consult anyone

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said that his former boss, US President Donald Trump, is creating a vacuum in the Middle East by pulling troops out of Syria and thus sending a message to allies that the US is not trustworthy.

In an interview with a Greek TV channel released in full on Wednesday, Scaramucci said that Trump's decision defies Pentagon. "The best minds in the Army think we have to maintain troops in this area," he noted, adding that his biggest problem with the president is that he doesn't listen to anyone nor include them in decision making.

Trump's former-aide-turned-critic expressed concerns that Ankara's offensive in Syria may set off a jihadist resurgence that could threaten countries around the world.
