PROCESS.>>THINGS WILL REALLY HEAT UP WHEN THE ENTIRE CONGRESS IS BACK.>>Neil: LET’S GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE, THE PRESIDENT IS TAKING QUESTIONS ON THIS DANGEROUS SITUATION IN TURKEY.>>President Trump: THEIR BITTER ENEMIES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AND POSSIBLY ALWAYS WILL BE. SO WE ARE OUT OF THERE, WE’VE BEEN OUT OF THERE FOR A WHILE, NO SOLDIERS WHATSOEVER. THEY ARE TAKING SOME OF THE MOST DANGEROUS ISIS FIGHTERS OUT AND HAVE TAKEN THEM OUT AND ARE PUTTING THEM IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. SECURE. IN ADDITION, THE KURDS ARE WATCHING, AND IF THE KURDS ARE WATCHING THEN TURKEY WILL WATCH BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT THOSE PEOPLE OUT ANYMORE THAN WE DO. WE’VE TAKEN A A NUMBER OF ISIS FIGHTERS THAT ARE PARTICULARLY BAD AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT NOTHING HAPPENS TO THEM AND I THINK WE ARE DOING A GREAT JOB. I THINK THE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY CAMPAIGNED ON ENDLESS WARS, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY FIGHTING WARS. HALF THE WARS NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING OVER THERE AND I FEEL THAT WE ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING AND I THINK THE COUNTRY FEELS THAT TOO. WE’VE HAD TREMENDOUS SUPPORT OUTSIDE OF THE WASHINGTON AREA, AND EVEN THE WASHINGTON PEOPLE ARE SAYING, WE ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING. AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE DEALING WITH BOTH SIDES AND WE WILL SEE WHAT WE CAN DO.>>SINCE THEN IT APPEARS THAT THERE HAVE BEEN CASUALTIES ON THAT SIDE OF. ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT ESCALATION AND ARE YOU CONCERNED THAT ERDOGAN WILL WIPE OUT THE KURDS?>>President Trump: I WILL WIPE OUT HIS ECONOMY IF THAT HAPPENS, I’VE ALREADY DONE IT ONCE. I HOPE HE WILL ACT RATIONALLY. YOU DO HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THEY’VE BEEN FIGHTING EACH OTHER FOR MANY, MANY DECADES. AND IT’S TIME FOR THE AMERICANS AND WE DID A GREAT JOB. WE TOOK CARE OF ISIS, AND I BELIEVE IT WAS 97 AND 96% AND THAT LAST THREE OR FOUR WAS THE HARDEST PART. THEY TOLD ME IT WOULD TAKE A YEAR OR TWO YEARS TO DO IT AND I DID IT IN A MONTH. AND WE DID IT TWO WEEKS, THROUGH TWO MONTHS. WE’VE BEEN WATCHING OVER A LOT, WATCHING OVER THE PRISONERS, SOME VERY BAD PEOPLE. SO SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE WE HAVE ALREADY TAKEN. MANY OF THEM CAME FROM EUROPE, BUT THEY SHOULD GO BACK TO GERMANY, FRANCE, AND I SPOKE WITH BORIS JOHNSON, AND THEY CAME FROM VARIOUS PARTS OF EUROPE. THEY DIDN’T COME FROM OUR COUNTRY, WE SAID TO FRANCE AND GERMANY, WE SAID TO VARIOUS COUNTRIES IN EUROPE, WE WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO TAKE YOU BACK. WELL WE DON’T WANT THEM, WE DON’T WANT THEM, AND WE SAID WE DON’T WANT THEM EITHER BUT SOMEBODY HAS TO WATCH OVER THEM. WE DID YOU A FAVOR, TAKE YOUR PEOPLE BACK. THEY DIDN’T WANT TO TAKE THEM BACK. I GIVE THEM ONE CHANCE, ANOTHER CHANCE, I GIVE THEM A THIRD CHANCE AND EVEN A FOURTH CHANCE. NOT THAT I BLAME THEM TOO MUCH, THEY ARE USED TO THIS WITH THE UNITED STATES, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE UNITED STATES WHETHER IT’S TRADE OR NATO, THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE UNITED STATES. BUT WE THINK THAT MAYBE THE KURDS WILL DO THE JOB AND IF NOT THE KURDS THEN MAYBE TURKEY WILL DO THE JOB. BUT WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THAT, WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF CAPTURED FIGHTERS, THOUSANDS AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF FAMILY MEMBERS. AND WE DID A BIG FAVOR TO A LOT OF COUNTRIES, AND THOSE COUNTRIES DIDN’T WANT TO TAKE THEM BACK SO THAT’S THE WAY GOE GOES.>>IF ISIS FIGHTERS ESCAPE AND POSE A THREAT ELSEWHERE, –>>THEY WILL BE ESCAPING TO EUROPE, THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT TO GO. EUROPE DIDN’T WANT THEM FOR MONTHS. THEY COULD HAVE BAD TRIALS WERE DONE WHATEVER THEY WANTED BUT AS USUAL IT’S NOT RECIPROCAL. YOU KNOW MY FAVORITE WORD, RECIPROCAL. THAT’S ALL I WANT. AND IT’S NOT RECIPROCAL, STEVE. IT’S NOT A FAIR DEAL FOR THE UNITED STATES. WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA TOOK THE PK K, THEY ARE MORTAL ENEMIES OF TURKEY AND SO WHEN YOU BRING THEM INTO A PARTNERSHIP, IT’S A TOUGH SITUATION. THEY’VE HATED EACH OTHER FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. IT’S AMAZING WHEN YOU LOOK AT HISTORY AND YOU LOOK AT CULTURE BUT YOU LOOK AT THE LINKS OF THE TIME AND THE FIGHTING FOR SO LONG. SO WE IMPOSED OUR SELF INTO IT. I SAID IT YESTERDAY, THE SINGLE WORST COUNTRY THE UNITED STATES — IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH COUNTRIES AND THE RELATIONSHIPS WE HAVE A COUNTRIES, BUT MAY BE PUTTING IT A DIFFERENT WAY. THE WORST MISTAKE THAT THE UNITED STATES HAS EVER MADE IN MY OPINION WAS GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST. IT IS A QUAGMIRE. WE ARE UP CLOSE TO $8 TRILLION AND WE ARE BRINGING OUR FOLKS BACK HOME. WE HAVE GREAT TALENTED MILITARY, AND OUR MILITARY HAS NEVER BEEN STRONGER. BUT WE ARE NOW ACTING AS POLICE. WE ARE POLICING AREAS AND DOING JOBS THAT OTHER COUNTRIES SHOULD BE DOING. WE ARE DOING JOBS FRANKLY THAT EUROPE SHOULD BE DOING, THAT RUSSIA SHOULD BE DOING, THAT IRAN SHOULD BE DOING, THAT IRAQ, TURKEY AND SYRIA SHOULD BE DOING. THEY SHOULD BE DOING THIS, WE SHOULDN’T BE DOING IT, WE ARE 7,000 MILES AWAY.>>MR. GRAHAM IS TALKING ABOUT IMPOSING ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?>>President Trump: I ALREADY TOLD THAT TO PRESIDENT ERDOGAN, FAR MORE THAN SANCTIONS. LINDSAY AND I FEEL DIFFERENTLY. I THINK LINDSEY WOULD LIKE TO STAY THERE FOR THE NEXT 200 YEARS AND THEN ADD MAYBE A COUPLE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE EVERY PLACE BUT I DISAGREE WITH LINDSAY ON THAT. I WILL TELL YOU I DISAGREE ON SANCTIONS BUT I THINK MUCH TOUGHER ON SANCTIONS. I HAVE GOTTEN HIM TO STOP FROM VIRTUALLY THE FIRST DAY I WAS IN OFFICE, BUT THEY WANTED TO FIGHT AND THAT’S THE WAY IT IS. AND THEY’VE DONE IT FOR SO LONG.>>SO WHAT IS AS HUMANE A WAY AS POSSIBLE?>>President Trump: WE WILL HAVE TO DEFINE THAT AS WE GO ALONG. IF YOU LISTEN TO ERDOGAN, HE WANTS TO HAVE PEOPLE GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND GO BACK TO SYRIA. RIGHT NOW HE IS HOLDING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE ALL OVER THE PLACE IF HE WASN’T HOLDING THEM SO HE WANTS TO REPATRIATE, HE WANTS THEM TO GO BACK INTO THE AREA THAT HE’S LOOKING AT. BUT WE WILL SEE HOW HE DOES IT.

100 thoughts on “Trump issues dire warning to Turkey over Syria invasion”

  1. This is a Betrayal of the Kurdish people..the same people who lost 15, 000 soldiers defeating ISIS. Shame on you America…..

  2. America had the entire Kurdish nation fighting in America's name for the miserable cost of 50 US soldiers here and there. Incredible leverage fueled by the biggest power on the planet… hope. Like Spartans went down in history as the bravest warriors, the US in the entire worlds view (and their own) is becoming the biggest traitors. I just don't get how The Americans allow this to happen in their name. Who does this guy work for?

  3. I. Love you so-called Christians who will turn your back on any and everybody of it fits your narrative. Where is the empathy, sympathy and compassion? Yeah..let’s not help those in need or being treated as less than human. Oh wait. That’s this country. My bad.

  4. The Middle East has been a no-win situation for every Western nation that intervened.
    It was a no-win for the ancient Romans and Greeks.

  5. A great, great many of our President's supporters are supporters of our troops. Our troops are 'our men in arms'. Men in Arms support Men in Arms. The Brave and self sacrificing Kurdish fighters who bore the physical brunt of fighting ISIS and Keeping US Safe have had our backs now turned to them. We all know that. Any of us /US who support our troops, cannot support our Commander in Chief for this horrific betrayal of those Men in Arms….and Women…who defeated ISIS on the battle front and are now being left to be slaughtered. NO TRUE SOLDIER can support this. The Kurdish troops who are keeping 12,000 Hardened ISIS fighters in detention, as well as 48,000 Hardened ISIS family members, will abandon those posts and return home to defend their families and cities. Thus, soon there will be up to 60,000 ISIS fighters and family members free to re-establish. Welcome ISIS 2.0 Stand with our strong leaders in the GOP who condemn this decision by our President…Senators Graham, McConnell and others. Let us stand as Americans who understand the meaning of Men in Arms and who support anyone and everyone everywhere who would fight and sacrifice their life in a war that we support because it serves US.

  6. Read the FrontPage Magazine and Gatestone Institute articles about this and the Kurds. How Trump is throwing our Kurdish allies under the bus for them to be slaughtered by Erdogan.

  7. Your allies are YPG. It is a militant group. You are blindly following a false propaganda that makes you think what media calls “Kurds” are innocent civilians. There are 15 millions real Kurds living in Turkey and many more in Iraq, Iran and Syria. Why do you almost none of them don’t even want to consider joining PKK/YPG? Kurds in northern Syria are Syrians. YPG’s only aim is to create a country within 4 independent countries in middle east by fighting a guerrilla war. Violence will only cause more invasions like this. It is sad to see how many Americans are so naive to think that YPG fought ISIS just for US. Their only goal was to take the control of the region after US leaves. Do you expect Turkey, Iran or Iraq to be okay with a militant group creating a new state further destabilizing the region? You guys are incredible.

  8. Dear Turkey: Feel free to remove communists from the playing field by whatever means you deem fit. Sincerely, the informed.

  9. SHAME ON YOU AMERICA!….YOU BETRAYED YOUR ALLIES….THE SAME PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT AND DIED DEFEATING ISIS WITH YOU..AND NOW YOU LET THEM BE SLAUGHTERED BY A DICTATOR…..SHAME ON YOU ALL.

  10. That Part Of The World Has Fought For Thousands Of Years. Their War's Will Never End .It's" All" They Know How To Do." Bring Our Boys Home".

  11. Honorable President of the United States, the State of Israel thanks you for your support, but it is important to say that this is a terrible decision, abandoning our Kurdish brothers and sisters, who have been fighting for their independence for years.

  12. Trump is incredibly wise and brilliant. He knows what he’s doing. The Kurds will be just fine. Turkey with not touch the Kurds.

  13. Love Trump but how on earth did he think the Turks weren't going to start their slaughter of Kurds, a great people and an amazing ally.

  14. Trump did Putin a favor. He will never economically hurt Turkey. Trump owns 2 hotels in Istanbul. Besides thatTurkey relies on Russia for trade much more than the US , so Trump also helped Russia.

  15. Another Promise kept… Thank you Mr. President! Indeed, the American People DO NOT and NEVER HAVE WANTED to "POLICE THE WORLD" and it's high time that we finally have a President with the BALLS to work the will of the people!

  16. Armistices do not depopulate nations, if they were born in Syria, they are now Syrians, even if they want their own state. They could renegotiate possibly, sell land for a new state, whatever. Please get your acts together. But if born in Syria they are not Kurds. Not after an armistice. McCain was too lazy to explain this, too busy pretending to be Maverick in Top Gun?

  17. FOX reports just tonight Turkey is on attack in Northern Syria againist the Kurds …..BTW it's V. Putin birthday President of Russian Federation and Trump did not call him to wish him a Happy Birthday but then again Putin is getting everything else from this Trump !!!!!! 😀😁😀

  18. What a fool. You trumpettes voted for a fool. A moron. TrumptytheClown can’t even put together a coherent sentence. 😂

  19. Fox news is the worst news show ever to be put on the air. They lie and exaggerate. Their opinions are narrow minded and incomplete. Their host are racist and unethical.

  20. Dumb Donald’s standard answer "wait and see" , "many people say", "we will see what happens"……..maybe he will use his "big a brain"…..

  21. So the Kurds fought Saddam for us, fought Al Qaeda for us, and fought ISIS for us. Now, we decide it's too much trouble for us to keep 50 soldiers in position to protect them. We've kept soldiers in Korea and Europe for 70 years. Sorry Kurds.

  22. Threatens a NATO partner and the Kurds are now leaving the prisons with ISIS insurgents inside unguarded. Nice job Trump.

  23. Turkey must have promised making up fake investigation for the orange idiot to pull troops out of Syria! This is the brain child of Private Bone Spur! Clueless moron endangering the world by freeing Isis from Syria!

  24. Just as Clinton and Obama created Isis I sure hope we don't end up fighting the Kurds over this in the future. That's usually how it goes though we arm the enemy of our enemy and in the end go to war with them eventually fighting our own technology and equipment. Agree we need to get out and other countries need to get involved, America can no longer police the world we are a broke Nation as evidenced by our 22 Trillion in debt, declining manufacturing numbers and GDP, and deficit that grows years after year despite Trumps promises.

  25. Its funny that trump says we are not the world police like u.s went there to protect others. We all know why u.s is in the middle east so stop acting like youre doing a favor or something

  26. This is going to be the worst foreign policy decision Trump will ever make if Turkey follow through with full scale invasion. USA will loose the last piece of respect and trust it has left with the rest of the 1st world. It will go down in history as one of the lowest most regrettable point's in US history . I dont even live in the US and i feel sad for you.

  27. USA use the Kurds to fight ISIS, then stab the Kurds in the back after ISIS is defeated. USA is the biggest backstabber in the world. Make America great again by backstabbing your friends!
    The world will be crazy to trust USA again.

  28. This economy is a global economy. International business is a major that many undergrad students Excel and throughout the United States. Killing international business hurts the United States in the long run. Attacking another country's economy is a bad idea.

  29. You people in the comments are insane. You can't just pull out suddenly. We could lose Kurdish partners in the Middle-East and this could cause an ISIS resurgence. This is a colossal error.

  30. Is not a pretty picture, cleaning up for incompetent past presidents. Oh.. and changing the tide.. putting America First. God bless you Mr President for making the very hard decisions!

  31. What trump did to the Kurds families running children screaming bombs going off only A cruel dictator would do BUT heres the difference when trump talks to his flock they become mezzmrized it doesnt matter what he says ! And he knows it USA USA USA TRUMP/UKRAINE/CHINA/2020

  32. Drop all the prisoners off on an island and lets watch it like the next reality show…. or drop them off in whatever country not paying there share. Let the turds deal with them. who cares. stop spending USA money over seas. bring our people home and shut the door like everyone else in the world. We have problems to fix here. drop them off in shiftys backyard.

  33. All of the blood of these women, children, and soldiers is on trump and his supporters hands! The eyes of God are upon you.

  34. We do need to find a way to limit our seemingly limitless commitment in the region. A phone call, on a Sunday night , telling our troops to abandon their positions between two enemy forces is not the way.

  35. Tell China cant make the meeting havent been able to prepare properly due to domestic affairs situation and current high security risk levels from foreign powers

  36. The Kurds help the US defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Now Trump allows Turkey to wipe out the Kurds. US has no morals or loyalty. All Trump can say is if that happens we will wipe out Turkey’s economy 😂 Really? That’s all you got Trump!? Really?! 😂

  37. President Donald Trump pressed then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to help persuade the Justice Department to drop a criminal case against an Iranian-Turkish gold trader who was a client of Rudy Giuliani, according to three people familiar with the 2017 meeting in the Oval Office.

    Tillerson refused, arguing it would constitute interference in an ongoing investigation of the trader, Reza Zarrab, according to the people. They said other participants in the Oval Office were shocked by the request.

  38. That’s Right TRUMP 🤟🏾🤟🏾🤟🏾 I Love his Foreign Policy it’s like a regular Civilians (mindset) from The US … “Like what are our troops there for Dying?, it’s none of our Business”

  39. Just let Russia have a port in the Mediterranean for its naval fleet. Just let that happen say the numb-nuts know nothing Trump cult imbeciles.
    "Our supreme leader cult daddy Trump says its a good thing"

    This is what happens when you elect a DRAFT DODGER with ties to PUTIN and the SAUDI ROYALS.

  40. Never trust the US, even if they are your ally, because you never know will they honor their word. It is the first thing we learned in Europa.

  41. We are policing the entire planet we are financing the entire planet yet we have a deficit that my grandchildren and their grandchildren will never pay off bring those troops home shut down the UN save the money pay the debt off

  42. What a lot of this generation has never learned is that about 100 years ago the Government of Turkey committed the Genocide of the Christian Armenian people in what is now Eastern Turkey. This is the same area where they have just started there invasion of Eastern Syria. Turkey has never liked the Kurds. What do you think is going to happen, a friendly take over, or another Genocide.
