Trump: US never agreed to protect Syrian Kurd allies 'for the rest of their lives'

Source: ABC News

President Donald Trump on Monday, again defending his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria -- clearing the way for Turkish forces to attack U.S.-allied Syrian Kurds -- said, “We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives."

"We have a good relationship with the Kurds, but we never agreed to protect the Kurds. We have fought with them for three-and-a-half to four years. We never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives," Trump said speaking to reporters at a White House Cabinet meeting for more than an hour Monday afternoon.

“We’re bringing our soldiers back home and it’s going to probably work, but if it doesn’t work, you’re going to have people fighting like they’ve been fighting for 300 years, it’s very simple,” Trump said.

He added, "So far there hasn’t been one drop of blood shed during this entire period by an American soldier, nobody was killed, nobody cut their finger, no nothing, and they’re leaving."

1. Hey, Trump

Read a little bit of history. Or have Ivanka read it to you.

You're an idiot.

3. You don't abandon your allies at the drop of a hat. Our military bases were left unattended

so that we had to BOMB them.

And while not a drop of AMERICAN blood has been shed, shall we ask the Kurds about how their blood is doing?

10. You yanked the rug out from under them, Puppet Sharpie.

You didn't do it because you wanted "to bring the troops home." That was another one of your blatant lies, and the troops have been assigned to other foreign danger zones.

You did it because Vladimir told you to do it.

13. Another

big lie, he has war crimes on the list now. I wish he just would have a health emergency. Unleashing ISIS about 65,000 are going to unleash their hate on the West.
