House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she and GOP Senator Lindsey Graham have agreed Congress needs a resolution to “overturn” President Trump’s decision to hastily pull troops from northern Syria, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a statement saying he’s “gravely concerned” by what’s happening in Syria “and by our nation’s apparent response so far.”

Later Monday, the president said he plans to issue an executive order imposing sanctions on Turkey over its invasion of Syria, but has not yet imposed such sanctions.

“I am fully prepared to swiftly destroy Turkey’s economy if Turkish leaders continue down this dangerous and destructive path,” the president wrote in a lengthy statement.
