Donald Trump just compared the ethnic cleansing of our heroic allies the Kurds to two kids in a schoolyard fight. Lightly adding that sometimes you just have to let them fight and then pull them apart. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkey’s dictator Recep Erdogan will be dividing the Kurds’ state in five days. Listen to Trump.
The U.S. president has caused war crimes against the Kurds. There are 160,000 people, half of them were kids, who have five days to escape from their homeland. Even so, the bombing and gunfire continued. Trump’s ignorant words caused this horrific cascading chain of events.
Trump was caught on camera casually saying that the Turks needed to “clean out” the area where the Kurds had established themselves. That was the definition of “ethnic cleansing. He tweeted about “minor sniper fire” during the Kurds’ flight:
‘Just spoke to President @RTErdoganof Turkey. He told me there was minor sniper and mortar fire that was quickly eliminated. He very much wants the ceasefire, or pause, to work. Likewise, the Kurds want it, and the ultimate solution, to happen. Too bad there wasn’t…..’
He continued insisting “there is goodwill on both sides:”
‘…..this thinking years ago. Instead, it was always held together with very weak bandaids, & in an artificial manner. There is good will (sic) on both sides & a really good chance for success. The U.S. has secured the Oil, & the ISIS Fighters are double secured by Kurds & Turkey….’
Then, POTUS added that our European Nations will “take the ISIS fighters:”
‘….I have just been notified that some European Nations are now willing, for the first time, to take the ISIS Fighters that came from their nations. This is good news, but should have been done after WE captured them. Anyway, big progress being made!!!!’
After that, the commander-in-chief tweeted about promoting “peace and stability:”
In a typical fallback position, he complained about people’s horror at what he carnage wrought:
‘Can you believe I am doing this important work for our Country, and have to deal with Corrupt Adam Schiff and the Do Nothing (sic) Democrats at the same time? It was not intended to be this way for a President!’
