Three Arizona Republicans voted against a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday condemning President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from northern Syria.
The resolution passed the House with broad bipartisan support, delivering a stinging rebuke to the president. The final vote was 354-60.
Reps. Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar and Debbie Lesko were among the 60 Republicans who voted against the measure.
Rep. David Schweikert, the only other Republican in the House delegation, voted to condemn Trump’s move. The five Democrats in Arizona’s delegation all voted in favor of the resolution.
Democratic and Republican lawmakers in both chambers have slammed the president after he ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces from the region. Critics blame the decision for allowing a Turkish incursion into the region that targeted U.S. Kurdish allies.
