Trump issues dire warning to Turkey over Syria invasion


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.

  1. US needs protect our allies ,because they side by side with us fight against the enemy.When we complete our affairs we must treat them with warm treatment and protect them like a honest friends .

  2. Thank you. MR President Im a vet (Viet Nam Era) and my son is a vet. My wife's son is "EOD" Vet now home and dealing with PTSD. This entire war is and was insanity. Imagine being sent over there and getting shot at and before you can shoot back you have to make a phone call to see if its ok to defend yourself. All the while you best buddy is shot and killed. Betrayal is what every soldier experienced over there and its effects on you mind as a soldier are devastating. I love Trump for his forthrightness and character in standing up against all the neocons who want war but will never go or send their own. How about sending Biden and his Son over there and see how they do at dodging bullets.

  3. Why is this America's problem and not Europe's? Why does the world have this sense of entitlement, like the US is supposed to be the worlds police and the worlds piggy bank, its so bizarre. We got involved in the middle east, major mistake. So instead of owning that mistake and trying to reverse it we are expected to wear the millstone and be content with it dragging us to the depths?

  4. Many decades ago the American Left was arguing that the USA should not get involved in the ME in any way that involved the use of the military. For taking that stance, the American Left was ridiculed by Right wingers and called '' Bleeding hearts.''

    For decades the American Left argued that the US should negotiate with N.Korea and not make threats or use the military to deal with N. Korea. For that stance the American Left was accused of being '' bleeding hearts'' as well as ''Communists.''

    For decades the American Left has stood against Neoliberalism and the outsourcing of jobs that is an aspect of Neoliberalism. For taking that stance the American Left was again accused of being Communist and today the American Left, if not blamed for the problems that Neoliberals have brought about, is accused of being Neoliberal and Communist at the same time !
    The fact of the matter is, if Trump were to tell his supporters we should nuke Kansas his supporters would agree and if the American Left were to disagree and say no we should not nuke Kansas, Trump supporters would call the American Left ''snowflakes''and ''bleeding hearts.'' If Trump were to say that the US should invade Canada, and then rename the US Canada, Trump supporters would agree and if the American Left disagreed, the American Left would be called ''traitors'' ''Communists'' ''bleeding hearts'' and probably even Canadians !

  5. There are up to date news reports, and info being passed on via twitter, and live streams running, and photos and videos being posted. We can see what is happening.

  6. He's lying as usual. As long as Trump has Trump Towers in Istanbul making him money, he will not go against Turkey… ever!

  7. It just amazes me that we are not defending those who fight alongside us. It is because of The Kurdistan People that we defeated ISIS, just something I disagree with wholely.

  8. Kurds should release their isis prisoners and buy them business class tickets to America. Maybe they could turn up at some MAGA rallies.

  9. Democrats thinking…
    TRUMP removes troops… He's a treacherous traitor to our allies…
    Keeps troops in Waring country…. He's a WAR mongering brown people RACIST….???
    You cant WIN with THESE people…

  10. lindsey graham did not want us troops out of syria because he wanted to keep money off the defense budget and arms sales lindsey is greedy for millitary money lindsey needs to sit down and shut up

  11. Trump has caused our ally, the Kurds, to be completely abandoned and Turkey is taking advantage of it. What Trump has done is create more chaos and instability and Putin just loves it …

  12. war never ends unless its against a super poor starving small country. Keep men there or take them away it will not end. We went there to get rid of ISIS which we did.. We do not need to stay there and police the place.. Please give me a number to how many troops trump is pulling out?. How many are currently there? Countries who's citizens left to join isis will not take them back? Ok fine US Pulls out and you guys deal with it.. Think about it the whole world should be helping with this.. No more policing the world on our own dime.. "War makes you rich" Yea maybe in the roman empire days

  13. pulling out 50-100 troops……………………….. Not 5,000 not 20,000.. Less then 100…. Please let that sink in..

  14. Very smart President Trump ! We're not going to spend money endlessly for others war, besides European want us to pay for their war take us for sucker, we have no obligation to do so only morality. MAGA !

  15. Lol taking out Israeli-Secret-Intelligence-Service members being taken out and placed in different locations. – Corporate America-

  16. C. Rice is a middle of the road Republican that I would like to see run for President in the primaries. Her resume and experience are strong……………In a crowded Elliott Hall of Music at Purdue, two George W. Bush administration colleagues — Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of State, and Mitch Daniels, former director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget — sat down for conversation Wednesday night. A formal inquiry into a possible impeachment of President Donald Trump began a few weeks ago, led by current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Rice said she believed in the importance of whistleblowers and valued the protections surrounding them, but she said she has some reservations regarding the recent whistleblower attempt that brought about the current impeachment inquiry. “I will say, I’m a little uncomfortable with anonymous charges against the elected president of the United States,” Rice said. “I find that odd. I’m a little uncomfortable with third-hand charges against the president of the United States, because remember, impeachment would essentially overturn an election, and that’s a serious matter.”
    Rice said her hope was that whatever occurs with the impeachment inquiry could go on with “some dignity, rather than the kind of undignified things that we’re seeing currently.”

  17. This "dire warning" is of course only an act in . His real intentions he made clear by removing the troops. He knows – and everyone knows – that Erdogan would not be impressed at all and woul immediately start an invasion, but main issue is of course fooling fox news and the usual Trump supporters and pretending to be a tough leader… (not so tough on Putin actually who very much appreciates this decision…but this must only be a coincidence of course..)

  18. turkey just trying to make safety zone for refugees. if u want syrian refugees in your country than turkey wont make a safety zone.

  19. AT THIS POINT IN TIME, REPUBLICANS STILL DEFEND AND PROTECT THE TREASONOUS AND CRIMINAL PRESIDENT ~ NO MORE REPUBLICANS ~ VOTE BLUE ~ END CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON ~ REPUBLICANS ARE 90% OF THE PROBLEM ~ IS THIS WHAT OUR SOLDIERS ARE WILLING TO FIGHT AND DIE FOR ~ LET'S END THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

  20. Moves troops out of Turkey's way so they can do to the Kurds what they did to the Armenians, then pretends he'll do something if Turkey does what they said they would do. Eejit. As if he knows or understands history.

  21. Fifty troops was not too many to ensure the IS stays in Syria, and to protect the Kurdish U.S. allies. I support Pres. Trump, but this is a big mistake. ISIS will be accepted into Trudeau's Canada like other IS Fighters, then filter down here to attack us. When we wage war on foreign ground we do need to police war-torn and chaotic areas war created.

  22. Please since Bush Sr. middle east has always been a problem..Clinton failed to take it seriously..Bush Jr. knew then Obama Lord Almighty…do history check..Trump is correct why should Americans have to keep policing when it is causing trillions of dollars…Folks war is just exactly that WAR!!! NOTHING IS FAIR!! These people have been built on WAR in the middle east!!! Americans pay for the failures of other countries..America has cleaned up other countries messes just like going into Vietnam & Korea…Sick of America always bearing the weight to clean things up then these countries blaming us for the messes…Ooo by the way did you all know China bout millions in the stock market to break & cause us to crumble as a country but no one says a word about that….AMERICANS STOP FIGHTING..WE AS AMERICANS BETTER GET A GRIP..THE DEMS ARE TRULY DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY!!!

  23. No wonder Trump and his cronies senators hates and don't trust the FBI and CIA . Bcoz they know they are the one under surveillance ! Good Job !

  24. I’m thinking we should have stayed and protected the Kurds. You don’t turn your back on those who helped you! Betrayal is the most evil thing you can do to someone!

  25. buhuuu. Turkey is so scared. Trump is just a coward. What does he know of war? No one is his how family line has been in the army. Rich kids…..

  26. Tell me how usa has taken isis? It is 99% Kurds who has done the job. Now you want to give isis fighters to Turkey. Turkey is isis. I predict a world War 3. Trump you are the biggest mistake.

  27. If you want to help whoever you want in the Middle East Nobody is stopping you from going there. It has been done by civilians in the west. You are free to go in the warzone.

  28. America stay out of Middle East, and may be after 10 years, Middle east will welcome you with plutonium enriched long ranged missiles. Like what N.Korea is doing Now.

  29. Trump, his administration and his republican party have blood on their hands and god help the U.S. if we are ever invaded… our standing around the world and in this country is in shambles!

  30. Trump is smart. Why should America be inserting itself in a 100 year war between 2 groups that have hated each other forever.

  31. How can you even have the face to say that you are betraying the Kurds and their hopes for a country, when they fought so hard with so little…As usual, U.S. allying with the evil, bad, dark, demonic side, which as usual is some dictator. "Make America great again!" Yeah!

  32. You know, just when you think nothing more Trump can do will stun/shock you, he manages to!! Shameful! This is just getting ugly! Get him OUT OF OFFICE! I don't care WHOS in there just get TRUMP OUT! Put someone who's not half nuts!

  33. Idk why everyone hates him I literally hear business it’s so interesting for once cuz you can hear the tone and he sounds like the boss good job.

  34. Fox news is misinformation…there are few media sources left that Americans can trust. The Epoch Times and some others but we are surrounded by lies and liars! We've but little time…a spirit of deception is seeping over the country, we're seeing the mass suicide of a nation.

  35. This is a birthday gift by Trump to his master Putin, and his buddy Erdogan. Trump has a lot of investments in Turkey. After all where were the Kurds during Normandy? More importantly, where was Trump during Normandy?

  36. I think uncle Pooh-pin and trumpy are after the massive natural resources in isreal. Kurds wouldn’t never willingly let Russia through their territory so they have to go.

    Russia needs to get their grubby little hands on those resources, trumpy is in cahoots with his lover Pooh-pin and is self interested in enriching himself.

    Won’t happen straight away but Russia will go after those resources just a matter of time, they will control the road from Moscow to Damascus without the Kurds.

  37. Trump making the end game come on time we pointing fingers at him he just the breaking ground puppet..I'm seeing him making it real easy for ole hillery Clinton to pull a quick one..and win in 2020..cas these candidates kinda weird af

  38. The USA was always going to abandon the Kurds at some point, unless we want to be occupying Syria forever. Their biggest mistake was in thinking the USA, which is half way around the world, was going to be their eternal protector. They need to ally with Syria and Iran if they have any hope of survival. Getting the USA out of the picture will allow the natural way of things turn back to what it needs to be.

  39. Trump (Biff) made another slippery clown desision. Now Kurds are betrayed and invaded. He must have had a perfect conversation with Erdogan and maybe he has many perfect conversations with other dictators too. Making the world a perfect place for future generations. Biff 2020!

  40. Hate to be there. Hate to say it folks but we all know what will happen if we completely pull out and declare zero intervention on hostile forces in the middle east.

  41. anyone actually believe trump is bringing the troops back. hes simply relocating them. wouldnt want to disappoint Israel would we. MIGA 2020!!
