Trump dismisses Turkey’s invasion of Syria, says Kurds are ‘no angels’

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Wednesday downplayed the escalating tensions in the Middle East in the aftermath of his abrupt withdrawal of American troops from northeastern Syria.

“It’s not our border,” Trump said speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, referring to Kurdish forces that, until recently, fought side by side with the United States forces as “no angels.”

“If Russia wants to get involved with Syria, that’s really up to them,” Trump continued. “We shouldn’t be losing lives over it.”
