  1. Trump finally has taken a giant step to pull the US troops out of Syria. History will judge him whether it is a right thing to do. The US can continue to provide weapons and technical support to the freedom fighters there without the need to put US troops on the ground.

  2. Great. Now Trump is going to get more people killed now that he's playing 'commander in chief'. Tactics? Hah! I doubt he knows the difference between tactics and strategy.

  3. This tragedy is being orchestrated by Putin through Trump for what? A Trump hotel in Moscow? Money for Trump to launder? Why can't Trump's supporters see reality? Ultimately, they will be the ones with blood on their hands, Kurdish blood and maybe even many other country's blood as well if World War III results.

  4. Msnbc logic lets go to war with turkey and some of the kurds are not our friends and some are and trump cleaned up obamas mess in defeating isis, so its time to leave if obama didn't try to help islamists to overthrow syria we wouldn't be talking about syria and iran and russia would not be involved.the civil war would of ended years ago.same in ukraine if obama adminastration wouldn't of helped nazi groups in ukraine and manipulate the people in western ukraine the coup wouldn't of happened and their would be no civil war and the country would not be in chaos.why isn't trump of the bad guy when the last couple decades d.c sold this country out and made poor foreign policy decisons.trump is trying to stop the sell out of america and have a more cautious foreign policy and he is hated.

  5. His distraction will cause deaths …..blood on Trumps hands and for what ? A change in the news cycle from the impeachment.
    Trump ……we see you for what you are.

  6. Trump gets a taste from every dictator. At this point, it may be practical to consider Mueller's failure to bring a case against Trump as our nation's most tragic political failure.

  7. BUT WHY? DID SYRIA REFUSE TO INVESTIGATE #JoeBiden FOR CORRUPTION?
    This #CollusionProfusion thing is getting old, Mr. President.

  8. Oh! has the president of Turkey on the telephone call agreed to find dirt on Mr. Biden? Mr. Trump is certainly pleasing Mr. Erdogan?? GET OUT AND VOTE 2020!!!

  9. Impeachment is not really the true answer…Article 25 is the correct answer. UNFIT TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S….or even the golfing association.

  10. If the Allies France and Germany are so concerned about The Kurds Why do they not replace the American Forces in Syria and see how that works out for them…………………..????

  11. How shameful for the US military who have been serving on the Syrian border…..they have to slink away because Orange Lord Little Hands(Putin's Puppet) want to distract from his frauds and lies. Is it any wonder the USA is no longer trusted. It is going to be a human tragedy and Isis will rise again to plague the world x

  12. By the time tRump is gone, history will look on his regime as not any less devastating than Hitler's in about the same amount of time and for roughly the same reasons and with the same backup.

  13. Lookin' out for number one as usual. A fine example of what happens when right wingnut radicals are elected round the world. They'll probably be transferred to Saudi Arabia refinery guard duty.

  14. So we abandon the Kurds who bore the brunt of defeating ISIS? How much lower can Trump take our nation? He has no honor and no American values!

  15. If Trump is concerned that impeachment might hurt his legacy, what does he think a Kurdish genocide on his record might do? We should all be ashamed at this betrayal.

  16. Surely this is enough. For crying out loud when are you Americans going to arrest and jail this traitor. How long before he sells you out too!

  17. THERE SHOULD BE A LIE DETECTOR TEST DESIGNED AND ADMINISTERED TO ALL SELECTED PRESIDENTS BEFORE THEY ASSUME OFFICE, THE STAKES ARE TOO HIGH TO ALLOW A NUT CASE TO SIT IN THAT CHAIR. THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY.

  18. Hope you republicans and trump supporters enjoy a bloodbath you goin to see one When Turkey invades in to Syria .. Our draft dodging president has no idea how important our allies are

  19. Russia's Unregistered Orange Agent pulled troops from Syria, doing Putin's bidding. The Impeachment Inquiry needs to investigate this, and all the other things that Drumpf has done on Putin's behalf. The scope should not be limited to the Ukraine, and artificial timelines should not be set. All six House committees should be allowed to do complete and thorough investigations, following the evidence wherever it leads.

    Pelosi finally called for the Inquiry, but she's still acting like a cowardly, establishment hack. She needs to call for a full House vote on the resolution to begin the Inquiry. If there are Dems still holding out, she needs to put the screws to them. And, she needs to allow the committees to do their jobs, and give them her full support.

  20. Isn't it obvious by now that Trump doesn't care about America's geopolitical interests? He cares about Trump, and that's it.

  21. Trump is under unrelenting pressure so conflict will be started to deflect the attention away or in this case to preserve the Presidency in the mist of conflict or war. So don't be surprised folks when Turkey invades and US troops are commanded to stop the invasion in an attempt to rally patriotism and deflect the attention away from the impeachment process.

  22. Erdogan must have said he would buy a condo from
    #dirtyoledon
    that's a fair trade isn't it?
    a peoples' existence for a few million in the demented waste-of-skin's
    bank account

  23. America needs to acknowledge that your president has far, far too much power. He is a dictator in all but name. Re-visit your laws now!

  24. This is the political betrayal.
    Turkey itching for a fight.
    The Kurds is betrayed.
    This is very dangerous games.
    To personal safety, far reaching consequences.

  25. I am of Turkish origin.
    Endogamy is a dictatorial leader that the majority of Turks want and have tried to get out of office.
    This is a highly corrupt government.
    This move is beyond detrimental to the region!

  26. The US has become traitors to its Allies today, thanks to Trump. How the common US citizen puts up with this so called president is anyones guess. It will take years to reverse the distrust in the US now. Great news for Putin, absolute shocking news for the US and as usual, the GOP does nothing.

  27. Be prepared for the starting acts of WW3. He doesn’t care about world peace or anything but himself. He has already destabilized the USA internally now it will start to destabilize globally.

  28. KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — As Rudy
    Giuliani was pushing Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one
    of Donald Trump's main political rivals, a group of individuals with
    ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the
    former Soviet republic.

    Their aims were profit, not politics. This circle of businessmen and
    Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying
    to install new management at the top of Ukraine's massive state gas
    company. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies
    controlled by Trump allies, according to two people with knowledge of
    their plans.

    Their plan hit a snag after Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko lost his reelection bid to Volodymyr Zelenskiy, whose conversation with Trump about former Vice President Joe Biden is now at the center of the House impeachment inquiry of Trump.

    But the effort to install a friendlier management team at the helm of
    the gas company, Naftogaz, would soon be taken up with Ukraine's new
    president by U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry, whose slate of candidates
    included a fellow Texan who is one of Perry's past political donors.

  29. americans are untrustworthy allies who elect morons as Presidents. This is only history repeating itself

  30. america words do not mean anything the iran us treaty was scraped the kurds allies left alone it seems foriegn policy depends on the president mood i wonder if his advisers has thing to do with it
    here is a question
    do you thing will come a time when usa abandon its number 1 allay israel?¿

  31. Grim? U.S. troops should never have been in syria. They occupied a foreign country in order for kurdish gypsies to steal syrian oil, terrorize the locals & create untold numbers of refugees, destroy the environment, the education system & many, many churches.

  32. You gotta wonder if Draft Dodger Donnie is a Dictator groupie? Does he offer blow jobs when he visits? Or does he volunteer to pick up the soap when they are in the shower? I guess America does leave them behind.

  33. lol @ warmongering networks like MSNBC getting flustered cause Trump wants to disengage from Syria. You SCUM!

  34. I am a Turkish American.
    Erdogan is a dictator that the Turkish people want out of office .
    He is in bed with Putin and the Iranians.
    This is absolutely unbelievable!
    This is going to cause such damage.

  35. Trump is doing what Bush was criticized for NOT doing and war mongering networks are attacking him for it. MSNBC, CNN etc NEVER challenge or question the case for war. Warmongering SCUM!

  36. America gets screwed day in and day out. If Republican's stay in step with Trump,I don't see how they can ever lead again.

  37. Why should any country trust America ? Any agreement made with them is on thin ice, any document signed is worthless. Do you think that their erstwhile allies would dare share intelligence with them when Trump will blurt it out to their enemies?

  38. Trump has gone upstairs in his big empty brain CELLS once again. And have left America with no standing in the world and America's word worthless.🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

  39. whats turkey doing for trump? theres foul afoot.we no longer protect our allies,but do the biding of the aggressors.the personal pay off must be a coup de gra for trump.he cares not for humanity as a whole.when the bombs fall on American soil,and they will, we should not expect help from those he is turning against us.hope they use google earth before sending the missiles our way,D,C. is where they want to zero in on.

  40. Remove him from office and put him in prison. He is destroying decades sacrifice and work. He is working for the enemies of our country. . He is a repugnant,disgraceful fool. He is taking this country down the drain.

  41. Wasn't Bin Laden an ally until the US left them behind, too?
    😑 I hope some inteligent people under these decision makers can make this go with as little damage as possible…

  42. PEOPLE: I beg of you because you Need to KNOW this: ​ This is yet another encouraged & orchestrated event by the US behind the scenes w/Turkey; so that the ISIS fighters can be saved, as they are & always have been supported financially & spiritually by the Wahabi Sunni extremists, which the Al Saud Royal family & totally supports in secret as much as possible.

    Trump w/his ongoing bromance w/Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, crown prince of Saudi, will NOT allow the ISIS caliphate followers to continue to be held by the Kurds. Having the Turks invade & destroy the Kurds will 'save face' for both the US & Saudi Arabia.

    The Kurds never had a chance; they have been manipulated by the US to make it Appear that we are supporting the 'War on Terrorism' [i.e. ISIS] when we are NOT. It is ALL 'smoke & mirrors' as they say; w/the US relationship w/the Al Saud family; and it always has been. Only Jimmy Carter had the courage to try to break away from their evil dominance over our economy & way of life; and the 'Powers that Be' made certain that he was humiliated
    and not re-elected.

    Start studying the dynamics of the Al Saud family to learn of all of the intricacies of the Middle East. THEY Do believe that THEY are the only ones who follow the teachings of Mohammed the Prophet correctly. They form & use 'offshoots' such as ISIS, Al Queda, etc. to do the dirty, war, terrorist work of Jihad for THEM. Their goal is to first conquer all
    other Non-Sunni Muslims, especially the Shiites, and eventually, their long term goal is
    to convert [by whatever forces it takes] & rule over ALL non-'Pure' Sunni peoples of ALL faiths.

    THIS is What & HOW Mohammed the Prophet did to become the 'Leader' that he became in the 700's. Bow down to Mohammed or die. You can start reading here: Wiki: ISIS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levanthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levant

  43. It's not"we" standing by watching and doing nothing- it's Trump and the fact-dodging Republican Party aiding and abetting him. They are not willing to stand up on their hind legs and stop him from destroying the world. The Kurds have fought and died, men, women and children, and are the ones who got rid of ISIS. Now, they have betrayed by Trump, a penny-ante wanna-be murderous dictator, to other murderous dictators, Erdogan, Assad and Putin. Trump has now ensured the slaughter of an entire ethnicity, in broad daylight on the world stage, and Republican senators handed him the guns. Unfortunately, they have until Nov. 2020 to complete the genocide and release captured ISIS fighters back into the world. Republican senators must be SOOO proud…

  44. why does anyone look for sence in anything Trump does? He simply does not understand what he is doing. Time to remove him from office.

  45. This Administration SUCKS SO BAD WE ALL SHOULD BE VERY AFRAID THAT OUR LIVES ARE IN THE HANDS OF A CROOKED CORRUPT COWARD LIKE TRUMP!!! ITS AMAZING HOW FAR AMERICA HAS WENT DOWN SINCE HE TOOK OFFICE SWEARING TO MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN😢😲😕

  46. I stand with @realDonaldTrump today as he once again fulfills his promises to stop our endless wars and have a true America First foreign policy.

  47. Turkey will destroy ISIS, Kurdish, and any other forces that oppose them.
    Unfortunately some of the Kurds were former allies that worked with the US forces there. We turned our backs on them and there is a price to pay for that: trust from any other force our troops are assisting around the world. Afghans are on notice now……… Good luck with your new insurgency Turkey

  48. America is supposed to stand by and for the no man left behind rule guess Trumps never heard of that one tho

  49. Drunk has just killed America. This will cascade. By Christmas. America's thanksgiving will be the last one. Good Luck USA>

  50. … just recalling about Graham defending the pres just yesterday. He should not be shocked today for his actions!! Come on Graham, yes it is appalling and you all must act quickly before he acts out again in pure anger and hatred! That's what he's about! He has been and will continue to do so… It's a given.

  51. You want to know why Trump is acting this way, simple, just find out who promessed Trump dirt on his opponants !!!

  52. All the lives that will be lost because of trump's decision to leave the Kurdish government to the peril of the Turkish military will be on trump, the same as when he and kushner sold out Jamal Khashoggi to MBS to be MURDERED…Those type of people (trump and kushner and the likes thereof) have a lot to answer for when their time comes for them to leave all their ILL-GOTTEN GAINS behind…lol

  53. Wouldn't be surprised if his last move before leaving office is an executive order to rename the country "Trumpland" 🙄

  54. I suppose Trump’s comment that he has “great and unmatched wisdom”, should be ignored? Just another day with Trump and the absent Republican Party. Something is escalating in Trump’s mind and echos of “he alone can fix everything”, is definitely what people say in mental institutions.

  55. Breaking news: Seventy-three House Republicans have backed a resolution to condemn House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) for fabricating a phone conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

  56. Putin told trump to do this, and he was able to make the announcement before anyone knew about it. The Kurds have been our allies for decades, and trump might as well have signed their death warrants. I don't see how trump can simply give part of another country to Turkey legally.

  57. I could guarantee you that when this loser gets impeached he's going to pull an Edward Snowden and run to Russia and hide
