Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) is expressing concerns after President Trump tweeted that he did “not know” his top envoy in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Brett McGurk.
Uhhhh…you don’t know your own coordinator of the anti-ISIS campaign?
Over the past 5 years, no one has done more to put ISIS on its heels than Brett. We all know and rely on him. The fact that our President has no clue who Brett is should scare the hell out of every American. https://t.co/m7SNU1SA7z

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!
