Trump Defends Decision to Pull Out US Troops, Says Kurdish Allies Are ‘Much Safer Right Now’

Trump

WASHINGTON, DC – President Trump is defending his troop pull-out decision from Syria. That move essentially opened the door for Turkish forces to begin their deadly invasion against the Kurds along Syria’s northeast border.

President Trump said today, “Our soldiers are not in harm’s way – as they shouldn’t be – as two countries fight over land that has nothing to do with us. And the Kurds are much safer right now, but the Kurds know how to fight and as I said, they’re not angels, they’re not angels.”

His comments come as Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo head out to the region to try to negotiate a cease-fire with Turkey’s authoritarian leader, President Erdogan.
