The US should not be rewarding the man who committed war crimes with an invite to the WH. Trump’s persistence in wining & dining Erdogan shows a shocking disregard for Turkish aggression in Syria & attacks on our Kurdish partners.

....Also talked about their Border with Syria, the eradication of terrorism, the ending of hostilities with the Kurds, and many other topics. Look forward to seeing President Erdogan next Wednesday, November 13th at the @WhiteHouse  !

At request of this administration the Kurds served as the primary ground fighters against ISIS in Syria so U.S. troops wouldn’t have to. Then cut deal with Erdogan allowing him to wipe them out. Damage to our reputation & national interest will be extraordinary & long lasting.

President Trump's capitulation to Erdogan over Syria is an unmitigated disaster and may lead to a resurgence of ISIS. Trump's impulsive decision to withdraw our forces and betray our Kurdish allies has done incalculable damage to our national security and standing in the world.

Erdogan calls> @realDonald Trump caves, says 28 troops coming home>Turkey invades>ISIS prisoners escape>Kurds killed>Putin moves in>ISIS re-energized, threatens oil>Trump reportedly moving 500 troops + tanks back into Syria to guard oil. This isn’t leadership. It’s weakness.

President @realDonaldTrump ’s betrayal of the Kurds has given 3 dictators—Putin, Assad, and Erdogan—a free hand to expand their dark shadow over Syria. It’s bad for America and for our partners the Kurds. Why is he kowtowing to dictators?

Worth emphasising the scale of the disaster Trump has wrought in the week since his call with Erdogan. 1. Revived Isis. 2. Cemented Assad’s grip on Syria. 3. Handed Russia yet another geopolitical windfall. 4. Betrayed the Kurds. 5. Immeasurably harmed US power. Thread 1.

CNN Exclusive: Turkey says Trump knew ‘precisely’ about scope of N. Syria operation. “President Trump and President Erdogan have reached an understanding over precisely what this operation is,” Gulnur Aybet, Senior Adviser to the President of Turkey told @camanpour 

Syria is complicated, but this is simple. A week ago, our Kurdish partners were secure, ISIS was at bay, and hundreds of their fighters were detained. Then the President talked to Erdogan late one night, and disaster was unleashed. Now we’re scrambling to contain the damage.

European nations are some of our closest allies. Our security is intertwined. If Trump's impulsive capitulation to Erdogan leads to a resurgence of ISIS, it threatens everyone- in Syria, in Europe, and here at home. America may not have a friend left after this presidency.
