In a joint press conference with Italian president Sergio Mattarella, Trump slammed the Kurds who helped the US stop the ISIS Caliphate by claiming they “are not angles.”
“We are not a policing agent. It is time for us to go home,” the president said. He said 28 U.S. troops had been moved away from the Turkey-Syria border, calling his decision to remove American forces from the border area “strategically brilliant.”
“We’re trying to get Turkey to do the right thing. We want to get wars stopped.”
“If Russia wants to get involved in Syria, it’s up to them,” Trump added.
