Today Trump said he does not know who Brett McGurk is, and he seams very proud of that. Think about that. Trump says he has defeated ISIS, but he doesn’t even know the guy who has been doing that work for him for the last two years! Today Trump showed us how little involvement he has had and he pointed out that the success against ISIS was because of an Obama appointee.
Brett McGurk, who I do not know, was appointed by President Obama in 2015. Was supposed to leave in February but he just resigned prior to leaving. Grandstander? The Fake News is making such a big deal about this nothing event!

Brett McGurk is an American diplomat who was Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS. He was appointed by President Barack Obama on October 23, 2015, and was retained in that role by the Trump administration. He resigned in protest 2 days after Trump pulled out of Syria by tweet.
