“I held off this fight for almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home.” President Trump is taking heat from some of his strongest backers following his decision to pull troops from Syria and give Turkey the go-ahead to invade. The move “was condemned, too, by Kurdish fighters who would be abandoned to face a likely Turkish assault after fighting alongside Americans for years against the Islamic State.” Trump has warned Turkey not to go too far. “If Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey.” (That’s a real quote.)
