Trump Lifts Sanctions On Turkey, Claims Victory ‘Against All Evidence’ | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC

 

President Trump, during a press conference, said he is lifting sanctions that were placed on Turkey in response to their invasion of northern Syria. "Let someone else fight over this long blood-stained sand," he said of the region, acknowledging that "a few" ISIS prisoners escaped after the U.S.'s withdrawal. While Trump claimed that they have all been captured, U.S. Special. Rep for Syria Jeffrey told Congress Tuesday morning that over 100 ISIS prisoners escaped custody, and "we do not know where they are." MSNBC's Kristen Welker reports. Aired on 10/23/19.

      @Darrin Fry the Middle East is a mess so how long this ceasefire holds is anyone’s guess.. the bottom line though is the US has helped facilitate a peaceful resolution, it is now up to the Turks and Kurds to do the right thing

      What’s even worse is all of the world leader’s and countries all know he is ball face lieing to everyone in America. Let that sink in as a thought as how the world views America and what they must think of trump as a (So called American leader) it’s a total disgrace to the nation’s people’s as well as our leaders many of which must work with them and there leader’s knowing that the president is total lier and con.

  3. He just handed Russia the keys to the entire Middle East including the resources and sole Authority in the region. Trump is a traitor of the highest magnitude.

    Its wat Russia wanted turnip to do.

  6. Again, Putin is calling the shots for this weak so-called president.

      @Frank Goozie A little lesson in the art of war. The closest county always has the advantage . In this case Russia. Congrats you just created your next wave of terrorist.

      @cajun tacos How is that short bus because you have had a GOP majority both houses for a decade .

    • Thank God for Putin!!! Less dead americans,which makes democrats very angry

  7. Up to his eyes in meaninglessly-shed blood and splattering all of us.

    • Logical Con: Trump literally, “started a war,” or perhaps you didn’t notice Turkey’s invasion of a foreign country, just now. You’re so screwed up, with Trump Propaganda, that you don’t even make sense to Normals. . .

    • Ceren Ada Solakoğlu : The irony, nay tragedy, of this, is that Putin was SO CLOSE to economic collapse in 2016, that he was looking at a potential Coup in Russia. He was looking to pull out of the Middle East. Trump revived Russia’s fortunes, and spread Putin over the globe. Trump will get us all killed

    • Logical Conservative | October 24, 2019 at 2:59 AM | Reply

      @Ash Roskell LOL no, dum dum. The Kurds and Turkish had a conflict long before the US showed up. True or false? (don’t worry. I know you’re a coward and won’t answer. You probably don’t even know)

    • laura begay do you remember when Obama gave hundreds of millions of dollars in arms to Syrian rebels only for them to train a dozen men, and be destroyed and all their arms stolen. Syria was never ours to determine if Putin could help them or not. We made enough mistakes with our wars, and your solution is to continue them. Real smart…

    • Ash Roskell you can’t blame someone for some else’s actions. Obama literally started a war in Libya. Bush started wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Trump is ending our entanglements and your mad at him for it. Do u see your delusions??

    Trump is just following orders from his boss, Putin.

  9. What a joke this administration has been there still isis running around that escaped and this man since day one has been all about me he needs a win now but only his stupid supporters believe him at this poimt

    Oh you had a “victory”? Did you have this “victory” when you were kicked out of the house? Did you have this “victory” when everyone laughed at you at the UN? Tell me when this “victory” will be thrown away into your secret server..

      @Konrad Leyk Yes they are, but I was taught by my Mother to always considering the source. I pay little attention to Low IQ trumpies.

    • last time I was here you guys were crying it’s a pause not a ceasefire. oh let me guess, it’s still a pause

    • Varekai Ascendant | October 23, 2019 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @MilkCow Why don’t you visit the front lines and ask someone if it’s a ceasefire or a pause?
      There is NO such thing as a ‘cease fire’ it just an opportunity to reload and go at it again.

    • Dorian Shades of gray | October 23, 2019 at 10:17 PM | Reply

      @Varekai Ascendant the Middle East is a mess, Trump is not responsible for the tribal warring between the Turks and Kurds that has been going on for centuries. He has brokered a cease fire to facilitate a peaceful resolution, it is now in the hands of the Turks and the Kurds to maintain this relative state of peace.

    • Varekai Ascendant | October 23, 2019 at 11:01 PM | Reply

      @Dorian Shades of gray are you really that stupid? rhetorical
      WHAT CEASEFIRE?!
      THE TURKS NEVER STOPPED SHELLING THE KURD’S!

      DONALD TRUMP BETRAYED OUR ALLIES AND ALLOWED TURKISH MILITARY TO SLAUGHTER INNOCENT KURDISH PEOPLE, THE KURD’S WERE THE ONES THAT WERE GOING AFTER ISIS. IN PULLING OUT OUR TROOPS WE ALLOWED ISIS SOLDIERS TO ESCAPE FROM PRISONS. NOW THEY ARE NOW FREE TO ATTACK AMERICANS. NOT TO MENTION THE KURD’S THAT WILL SEEK REVENGE FOR THE BETRAYAL.
      AT least 100 evil ISIS terrorists have been freed from prison camps in Syria after American troops pulled out of the war zone, US officials said. Earlier this month.

    When Putin talks Erdogan listens an Trump crouches

    • Ann van de Kew : Fossil Fuels = Money, in this case. America, Turkey, Syria, Iran, Venezuela; all OIL rich and with Putin’s Puppets, running them for him, with Saudi Arabia next on the menu. And, here’s the kicker. Russia was SO broke in 2016, that they were seriously contemplating a full withdrawal from the Middle East. Trump revived the Russian economy, when Hillary was going to push them OUT. And, we KNOW what Trump Trolls will say to that; but, NO! Putin would NOT have gone to, “war,” over it. He couldn’t AFFORD it . . . SMH ✌️👍

    • IsThatTrue OrDidYouHearItOnFOX : The paid, foreign ones would. Most of the domestics are over committed, having given real MONEY to one of the many Trump collections. They’d let America burn, because the propaganda has got to them, and they just can’t BEAR to hear a, “liberal,” say, “We told you so.” . . . SMH ✌️👍

    • Randy Smith : No, it’s about Putin having control over the Middle East. America will WELCOME its Kurdish allies with OPEN ARMS, won’t we? They DID sacrifice their very COUNTRY for us, right? We can’t exactly, “refuse,” them a HOME, when we OWE THEM so much MORE THEN THAT, right? . . . SMH

    • B K : You sound like a 9 year old. You’re the REASON America has HAD IT with Treason Trump 😉

  12. Can’t wait to see this monster in his orange shirt and pants.

      @Jam Who
      Joseph Biden is no threat anyway, he can barely talk. Trump being afraid of Biden is like Godzilla being afraid of Bambi. There is no motive other than Trump trying to enforce the law.

      @Conchetta Harris if you are going to pretend you are an American and have any business sticking your nose in our politics at least work on your accent. There’s no reason it should show through your typing

    • How dare TRUMP not send white men to die to protect brown foreigners!!!!

  15. Oh my what a covfefe he’s made of that.

  16. He is a dullard, lifting sanctions, claiming victory. This is really bad

    • Yup cause orange man bad!

    • What is bad about it? Are there facts behind your statement or just feelings as usual? The Kurds will get a homeland in Syria out of this for the first time in 100 years. We get out unharmed and russia was already in Syria and we used actual diplomacy instead of bombs so where is this bad please explain?

    • Ugly German Truths | October 24, 2019 at 4:17 AM | Reply

      @Frank Goozie What is keeping trump from reneging on his word AGAIN if he feels like it? He just broke the trust of an ally to allegedly bring american troops “home”… now they are not even going. And what was Trumps role in achieving a treaty between Russia and Turkey exactly? Diplomacy? WHat Diplomacy… There was nobody to mafia strongarm into supporting his campaign for him, so of course he did not use -blackmail- “diplomacy”

    • Yes, ISIS will probably try to get air flights to NYC and Wash, D.C. to finish the work they left 18 years ago. All this will be on Trumpsky`s watch.

  17. As Peloise said, “All roads lead to Putin.”

    • VulcanTrixter27 is another Pro Russian Trump supporter. These people are promoting foreign interference in our democratic process, they have turned their back on the constitution, the law and the republic. Trump supporters are the most unpatriotic people in American history. Keep plugging Russia

    • @VulcanTrixter27 YOU KNOW NOTHING, YOU ARE NOTHING!

    • David V : Did you know that Putin was seriously considering a withdrawal from the Middle East, altogether, in 2016? His economy was on the brink of collapse, and the Trump plan was a Hail Mary. Now, Trump has revived Russia’s fortunes, transformed their economy, and made them reliant on Fossil Fuel Globalism. Saudi Arabia is Putin’s next plan. Hence, his Puppet Trump is, “protecting his interests, “ there. And, Putin has control over Turkey, Syria, Iran and Venezuela, too. Where else is there OIL and GAS?

    • VulcanTrixter: You mean, Russia is scared to take on American troops, so the, “ceasefire,” was just a ruse to get them out of the way, so they don’t witness their, “allies,” being slaughtered, right? You either HATE America, or you’re too stupid to admit Trump has betrayed us?

    • David V : P.S. What I said, in my last comment: It’s all in Rachel’s new book. I got it on iTunes, with her reading it to me. It’s awesome, but disturbing 👍
