Did we betray the Kurds for Trump Towers?

Yes, that's exactly what we did.

https://www.nj.com/opinion/2019/10/did-we-betray-the-kurds-for-trump-towers-editorial.html?fbclid=IwAR36avB64wgcpItXsRu-4MATvK-0NjrvjOS4cpAK0toYh9QJ3Wq5-jDUZLw

It blindsided the Pentagon, and both houses of Congress: The Kurds were our strongest allies in taking back territory from ISIS. Yet Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan considers them terrorists.

And astonishingly, Trump is now abandoning them to die.

It makes you wonder what exactly was said during that phone conversation, too. Trump is an admirer of strongmen, and has a lucrative property in Istanbul, one he’s acknowledged could affect his decision-making.

“I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” Trump told Breitbart radio during his campaign. “It’s a tremendously successful job. It’s called Trump Towers—two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it’s two.”

2. Arghhhhhhh!

If that is true, then I really hope that Kurdish rebels blow up Trump towers in revenge. He would deserve it. I can't believe that motherfucker would sacrifice the lives of our allies to save his personal real estate interests in Turkey.

Actually, yes I can. I do believe he would do that and he has. I hate that motherfucker more than words can say. There is no level of hell that is too low for him.

5. There is no "little" conflict of interest

There is or there isn't. He has once again confessed to a crime.

7. They're not his buildings, he just leases his name to the real owner(s)

Lot more likely he is trying to please Unkle Vlad, get some pipelines going, etc.
