DEAR GAWD! TRUMP REALLY SAID THAT!
"President Trump on Wednesday criticized the Kurds, saying they didn't help the United States during World War II and that they were only fighting for their land in Syria during the battle against ISIS.
“The Kurds are fighting for their land,” Trump told reporters at the White House during an event in the Roosevelt Room. “And as somebody wrote in a very, very powerful article today, they didn’t help us in the second World War, they didn’t help us with Normandy as an example. They mentioned names of different battles. But they’re there to help us with their land and that’s a different thing.” --Morgan Chalfant
To be fair, though, the Kurds didn't help us in the Revolutionary War either!
But this is serious:
“ 'I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,' Trump boasted in response. 'It’s a tremendously successful job. It’s called Trump Towers — two towers, instead of one, not the usual one; it’s two. And I’ve gotten to know Turkey very well. They’re amazing people, they’re incredible people. They have a strong leader.'
He said then that the situation was 'complicated,' adding, 'I thrive on complicated.' Trump did not reveal what he would do in the region if he were to become commander in chief. Trump still profits from Trump Towers in Istanbul, and the 'strong leader' then was the same as now: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan."
What he did to the Kurds and how that benefitted Erdogan STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN. Trump is a known liar, cheat, and con man. I have no doubt that he made some sort of deal with Erdogan involving his Trump Tower and not interfering with Erdogan's invasion into the Kurdish territory today.
Trump has no honor, no scruples, and nothing approaching human decency.
This is my blog and my opinion. Someday we may discover why Trump made this decision without consulting the Pentagon or his foreign policy advisors.
As I said: What he did today STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN.
