President Trump took to Twitter to slam The Washington Post in a series of tweets late Monday night, accusing the newspaper of “fabricating” facts about a report last week detailing his decision to cut off U.S. aid to anti-government rebels in Syria.

According to the Post, Trump decided to end a covert CIA program — approved by President Obama — to train moderate rebels to fight Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime after meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster before the G-20 summit in Germany earlier this month.

The report was met with consternation by lawmakers, with Senators Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and John McCain, R-Ariz., criticizing Trump’s decision and its ultimate motive.
