Activist actress Rosanna Arquette excoriated President Donald Trump in a Twitter tirade after the president spoke about his desires to bring U.S. troops home from Syria.

“The Kurds have been our Allies,” Rosanna Arquette said. “The slaughtering of so many people is a sin. The Kurds have many ISIS prisoners. This mentally disturbed president has put America in deep danger. The GOP are responsible for what will happen to the United States of America next.”

Arquette was responding to the president’s announcement that he intended to pull out the few U.S. troops stationed near the Turkish border and to reassign them to other areas in Syria.

The White House announced on Sunday that the U.S. forged an agreement with Turkey to withdraw U.S. troops from the border area. But critics immediately insisted that pulling U.S. troops from the area would give the Turks a green light to flood into areas controlled by the Kurds to wipe them out.

The president insisted that “it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home.”

Trump continued saying, “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!).”

Still the president delivered a veiled warning that Turkey would be responsible for watching over captured ISIS fighters.

Arquette, not exactly a noted foreign affairs scholar, doesn’t hold back her hate for President Trump.

In March, Arquette said President Trump is perpetuating a “sick dictatorship” and running “a government that has normalized racism rape, mass killings from Guns Pedophilia, homophobia.”
