No surprise!
Interesting when set against the GOPs claim that 'it was investigating corruption not interference'

China says 'it's interference and we're not doing it'

seems it's only the GOP think it doesn't qualify as interference.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
President Trump on Wednesday sought to distance himself from a Turkish military operation against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria, days after he drew bipartisan backlash for announcing U.S. troops would vacate the area.

"This morning, Turkey, a NATO member, invaded Syria. The United States does not endorse this attack and has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea," Trump said in a statement issued by the White House.
He does not have the courage to stand behind his own decisions.

Another Trump lie

we've long ago left politics behind, this has come down to a simple decision between right and wrong.

One can only assume the reason some people still support him is that he is the perfect reflection of their sense of honour and their moral, ethical and spiritual values.

It's not virtue signalling to say 'maybe you ought not to stand by when your allies are getting the shit bombed out of them'

That's a pretty good article about what Trump is up to:

Does Trump just get weirder? Neither him nor the Kurds were of fighting age then.
Trump's grandfather was German, he didn't help with D-Day so should Trump be punished? (Rhetorical question).

How many troops did Trump pull out in the last 3 days from Syria? He says 50

Zero.

He's merely moving them elsewhere, out of the way of the Turkish military.

He had the military halve the number of soldiers in Syria, down to 1k, earlier this year, but there's no reduction now. And remember, instead of keeping out he intensified the conflict at other times, for instance by launching a massive missile attack.

And now Trump's response
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll.
Whoever their Pollster is, they suck.
But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days.
LOL!

The trick was a few US soldiers were stationed in Kurd occupied areas so Erdogan would not attack and so not risk killing one with huge US retaliation.

Now that safety line is gone

I read 100, the point is that the ones left will not engage and Erdogan is free to bomb the crap out of areas away from the US troops.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

But then he did give some consolation

"As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I've done before!),"

I had to double-check that (sorry omtatsat ) and Trump actually wrote that!

It's also not entirely true. God is just as wise.
On the other hand, God needed 7 days to create the world where Trump would have ordered it on Amazon and delivered within 24 hours.

Trump claimed that he was more humble than Jesus. So then it must be true.
