Amash, a former Republican who left the party in opposition to Trump earlier this year, said the president isn't really bringing American troops home, and that he has done little to end U.S. involvement in foreign wars.

“Despite President Trump’s bluster about ending endless war, he’s not ending anything. Our troops aren’t coming home; a small number were moved so Turkey could escalate the war," he said in a tweet. "And the president has expanded our role in Saudi Arabia and Yemen, and kept us in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Turkey launched an offensive on northern Syria on Wednesday, days after Trump said he would remove U.S. troops from the area. Turkey is attacking a Kurdish militia force allied with the United States in the fight against ISIS.

Trump said he made the decision to end America's "endless" wars, but the move has come under blistering criticism from GOP lawmakers. 

Amash left the Republican Party and the House Freedom Caucus, which he co-founded, earlier this year after he said special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerSchiff: Trump acquittal in Senate trial would not signal a 'failure' Jeffries blasts Trump for attack on Thunberg at impeachment hearing Live coverage: House Judiciary to vote on impeachment after surprise delay MORE’s report led him to conclude Trump has committed impeachable offenses.

Amash has frequently criticized Trump’s moves on Syria from a libertarian perspective, tweeting earlier this week, “U.S. forces should not even be in Syria without congressional approval. Regardless, Turkey would not take this action without the express consent of the White House. It’s disingenuous for President Trump to suggest it’s all about 'ISIS fighters' when the target is Kurdish forces.”

“Endless war continues,” the Michigan congressman tweeted Monday.
