Fox News anchor Leland Vittert punctured President Donald Trump’s recent Twitter warning to Russia, Syria, and Iran by asking “Why should [they] care?”...
“Russia, Syria, and Iran are killing, or on their way to killing, thousands if inocent civilians in Idlib Province. Don’t do it! Turkey is working hard to stop this carnage,” Trump wrote, before deleting the message and issuing a corrected version of the tweet.

Vittert went in on Trump a bit more, asking “How much of this new Iran China Russian alliance that we are seeing, how much is that in a direct response to them feeling like they can get away with it, and the U.S. pulling back in terms of projection of force in the Persian gulf?”
“I think it’s a direct reflection of it,” Miller said, and Vittert went on to note that after the withdrawal, it “only took a couple of days or a couple of hours for the Russians in the Syrians to move in” to the fight.
