Speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt room, Trump defended his decision to pull US troops out of Syria enabling Turkey to slaughter the Kurds.
Quoting some wing nut article that Trump ‘read’ in Towhnhall, he droned on about how the Kurds offered us no help in WWII and weren’t there with us on the battlefields of Normandy.
“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,” he said.
The Kurds “are there to help us with their land, and that’s a different thing,” said Trump.
“We have spent tremendous amounts of money on helping the Kurds in terms of ammunition, in terms of weapons, in terms of money, in terms of pay. With all of that being said, we like the Kurds,” he added.
