Donald Trump said he abandoned the Kurds because they ‘didn’t help in WW2’ – 5 appalled reactions

Donald Trump shocked the world with his announcement that he was withdrawing US troops from Syria.

The move put America’s Kurdish allies in immediate peril, with Turkey commencing airstrikes on the territory amid expectations that it would soon advance to take complete control of the area.

Faced with a backlash from all sides at home and abroad, the so-called president thought he’d better try to justify what he’d done. And this is what he said.

He did, he really did.

‘Now, the Kurds are righting for their land, just so you understand they are fighting for their land. And as somebody wrote in a very very powerful article today, they didn’t help us in the Second World War, they didn’t help us with Normandy as an example, they mentioned the names of different battles, but they’re there to help us with their land, and that’s a different thing.’

And these 5 appalled reactions say it all.

This chap put it perfectly.

If you prefer it a little bit more NSFW.

To conclude.
