Just days after Trump paved the way for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to begin genocide of the Kurds, more than 100,000 men, women, and children have been displaced. The number of casualties is unknown as bombs reign down on Kurdish villages, and mortar rounds strike American posts, now void of U.S. soldiers, after Trump acted upon the Turkish dictator/president’s request.
Everyone predicted what has become a reality. The Pentagon has issued statements which offer fear that Erdogan will continue his goal of ethnic cleansing. The Kurds are rightfully angry that our illegitimate president deserted an ally that fought bravely for the last four+ years to defeat ISIS.
CNN reports that the leader of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces complained to a U.S. diplomat that America is “leaving us to be slaughtered” And, in terms that are hard to argue, the Kurdish leader added, “You have sold us. This is immoral.”
This is the type of thing that happens when millions of ignorant voters elect a man without morals or principles. This con man has made a fool of every man and women who supported him. The biggest mistake in American history is now defiling the White House sheets with ‘secret sauce,’ and the grease from Kentucky Fried Chicken. This is an unforgivable sin, and those very supporters of the worst man in the world are the ones who are now paying for their crimes against real Americans. Trump’s failed policies are harming the lives of the working class as never before.
