Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs, one of President Donald Trump’s biggest cable news cheerleaders, appears to be concerned with the GOP blowback the President received for his abrupt move to pull U.S. troops from Turkey’s border in northeastern Syria.

After defending Trump’s move and criticizing the Republican opposition to it on his show Monday night, Dobbs responded to his guest Corey Lewandowski’s call to “take care of something called America First.”

“He is the President,” Dobbs said. “He has the power to shut down the nonsense whether it’s emanating from the DHS, from within his own White House and his own advisers.”

Dobbs then called on Trump to “connect back” with the middle class.

It’s time for this President, and I salute him, to connect back with the people who put him in this White House: the American people,” Dobbs said. “Not Wall Street and not the swamp. And not corporate America and not Tim Cook. But, you know, Mr. and Mrs. America who live on streets all over this country in middle class neighborhoods and neighborhoods that aspire to be middle class. That’s who his people are.”

Dobbs added that he “sees more corporate CEOs parading out of that White House than I ever thought possible under this President.”
