“Trump opened the gates of hell for the Kurds” MSNBC’s Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel said as he reported from the Kurdish territory. They have been forced to flee and they are he said “terrified.” Then, this bombshell dropped.
When CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale came upon one of Donald Trump’s off-the-cuff remarks, he was stunned. The president may have just explained what was beneath his horrendous betrayal of our heroic allies the Kurds of northern Syria.
Trump has been exceptionally pleased about how he mishandled the debacle between Syria, the Kurds, and Turkey. He announced that “we’ve” whoever “we’ve” is taken control of the oil in the Middle East, according to Facebook:
Trump’s strange statement intrigued White House Bureau chief for VOAN Steve Herman tweeted what Trump said:
‘”A little bit of hard love” and “a lot of pain for a couple of days” with #Turkey and #Syria, says @POTUS, contending “the Kurds are very happy about it.”‘
Then, the president added the zinger, “We’ve taken control of the oil in the Middle East:”
‘We’ve taken control of the oil in the Middle East, the oil that we’re talking about, the oil that everybody was worried about. We have the U.S. control of that. There are no shots being fired, and a lot of people are doing a lot of things,” despite the supposed “ceasefire” that lasted less than 24 hours.’
POTUS continued on Facebook about his “deal:”
‘This is a deal that should been made 15 years, 10 ago, over the last number of years under the Obama administration. The real numbers is over one million people were killed. We have lost no, not a drop of blood since we’ve started, what I’ve started, and it was, so far it’s working out.’
The former leader of the free world added in another tweet that “the Kurds” wanted “the ultimate solution to happen:
‘Just spoke to President @RTErdogan of 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…..’
‘…..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….’
At that point, the president took a little time to thank retiring Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who will retire at the end of the year. Perry was also one of the self-described Three Amigos who were implementing Trump’s illegal Ukraine escapade:
‘I want to thank Secretary of Energy Rick Perry for the outstanding job he has done. He will be leaving at the end of the year to pursue other interests. Rick was a great Governor of Texas and a great Secretary of Energy….’
Then, Trump announced his nomination to replace the Secretary of Energy:
‘….He is also my friend! At the same time, I am pleased to nominate Deputy Secretary Dan Brouillette to be the new Secretary of Energy. Dan’s experience in the sector is unparalleled. A total professional, I have no doubt that Dan will do a great job!’
