Trump says he will wipe out Turkey’s economy if it wipes out the Syrian Kurds

Asked by a reporter if he was concerned Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will wipe out the Kurds, Trump replied: “I will wipe out his economy if that happens.”

“I’ve already done it once with Pastor Brunson,” Trump said referring to U.S. sanctions slapped on Turkey over the detention of an American. “I hope that he will act rationally,” he said.

Trump also said that the United States has told Turkey how he feels about the conflict and that he is speaking to ‘both sides.’

Turkey attacked Kurdish militia positions in northeast Syria on Wednesday, pounding them with air strikes and artillery barrages in a cross-border military operation just days after U.S. troops pulled back from the area.
