President Donald Trump fired back at allegations he was somehow “abandoning” Israel from Israeli-based and western mainstream media outlets this week, saying “We Give Israel Billions, It Can Defend Itself In Syria.”
The President's decision to pull troops out of Syria was one of the most controversial to the mainstream media, peaking questions as to why a decision to end wars would be controversial at all
On Wednesday, he announced that he would be putting America First, in saying that the United States of America doesn't need to defend Israel inside of Syria because Israel can afford to defend itself.

“Well, I don’t see it. I spoke with Bibi,” President Trump said in reference to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “I told Bibi. And, you know, we give Israel $4.5 billion a year. And they’re doing very well defending themselves if you take a look.”
“We’re going to take good care of Israel. Israel is going to be good. But we give Israel $4.5 billion a year. And we give them, frankly, a lot more money than that, if you look at the books — a lot more money than that. And they’ve been doing a very good job for themselves,” Trump added.
“So that’s the way it is,” Trump said to reporters.
Americans are growing increasingly frustrated with the United States of America's military support for foreign countries in foreign lands, and this decision from the President is being hailed as heroic.
We have a concern of a foreign invasion that almost daily builds on America's borders, as illegal aliens continue to flow into the United States of America, of which the US needs to focus on first. With this decision, it will save Americans billions of dollars and put US forces closer to their families.
That's the proper way to put “America First,” and the President made the right decision.
