Trump’s withdrawal from Turkish border is: causing slaughter of our Kurdish allies rekindling ISIS pushing Kurds into alliance with Syria making Russia preeminent superpower in region. Just as worrying, Trump made this decision w/o consulting anyone. #DictatorDonald 

VP Pence says that, in a phone call earlier Monday, President Trump urged Turkish President Erdogan to end the invasion and agree to an immediate ceasefire. VP Pence said the president also spoke to leaders in the region, including Kurdish Gen. Mazloum.

Graham on Trump/Turkey: President Trump is trying to end the bloodshed through a negotiations deal addressing Turkey’s concerns about certain Kurdish elements near their border. At the same time, he wants to make sure our Kurdish allies are not abandoned.

“We know that we would have to make painful compromises with Moscow and Bashar al-Assad. But if we have to choose between compromises and the genocide of our people, we will surely choose life for our people,” Kurdish Commander Mazloum Abdi writes.

Just as a point of fact: the Kurdish forces lost 12,000 lives fighting ISIS so we didn’t have to. Trump abandoned them. For no good reason.

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.

Turkey almost killed the US soldiers in Syria that Trump said don’t even exist. Trump has betrayed the US military just as he has betrayed their Kurdish partners.

I just spoke to a distraught US Special Forces soldier who is among the 1000 or so US troops in Syria tonight who is serving alongside the SDF Kurdish forces. It was one of the hardest phone calls I have ever taken. "I am ashamed for the first time in my career."

Israel strongly condemns the Turkish invasion of the Kurdish areas in Syria and warns against the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds by Turkey and its proxies. Israel is prepared to extend humanitarian assistance to the gallant Kurdish people.

Kurdish'>Syria Kurdish official told us, reacting to Trump’s overnight decision.  “The Americans are traitors. They have abandoned us to a Turkish massacre. We can no longer fight against isis and have to defend ourselves. This could allow isis to return to the region.”

We may be in the process of leaving Syria, but in no way have we Abandoned the Kurds, who are special people and wonderful fighters. Likewise our relationship with Turkey, a NATO and Trading partner, has been very good. Turkey already has a large Kurdish population and fully....

Once again, @realDonaldTrump  is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease a foreign strongman – this time betraying our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS.

A sr military official told me US special forces troops distraught, upset, morally disturbed by having to tell their kurdish allies in Syria that, because of orders, their promises of defense won’t be kept.

Spoke to a professor with deep connections into Kurdish leadership in Syria. I asked him about the mood there after Trump announcement, his answer sent chills: Hurt, betrayed, and angry. They'll all be dead soon...
