During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Tim Kaine stood by Hillary Clinton’s statement that a Clinton administration would not send American troops to Syria.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates addressed this remark in a recent op-ed, saying, “Mrs. Clinton has ruled out putting U.S. ground troops in Iraq and Syria ever again. That is a politically driven categorical declaration of a sort no president (or candidate) should make.”
Kaine also was forced to walk back comments that he made in 2015 about U.S. efforts in Syria.
“In Syria, the strategy’s a joke, the idea that you can train 30 people and put them in a civil war featuring millions and have them be effective is highly fanciful,” said Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
