Sen Rand Paul Claims Trump Has Made An Extraordinary Breakthrough.
Senator Rand Paul was interviewed on “America’s Newsroom” with host Bill Hemmer. They discussed how Trump brought peace to Syria through the use of sanctions on Turkey. Paul is hopeful and believes this could be a lasting peace for the war-stricken area.
“I think it is an extraordinary breakthrough the president is to be complimented. What a great statesman like speech. It is amazing that by allowing this to occur we actually have a realignment in Turkey, in Syria, that may actually lead to peace for the first time in eight years.”
“This is exactly why we must defeat the McConnell resolution,” Paul continued. “The McConnell resolution says that we would disallow President Trump from meeting with (Turkish leader Tayyip) Erdoğan. I think we need to see the world as it is. And, I think it’s important that the president meets with Erdoğan. His conversations, so far, I think are leading towards peace,”
Hemmer then asked if Paul trusted the leader of Turkey to hold up his end of the bargain now that the sanctions have been removed.
“I think trust has to be verified and it’s verified over time,” Paul replied. “A permanent ceasefire sounds great and I really appreciate the Trump being able to negotiate this.”
“I think there is a possibility that the Kurds have had many, many, lives saved here by the president’s action.”
“I think there’s also the possibility for the Kurds to negotiate a semi-autonomous region where they would share in oil receipts with the Assad government,” he explained. “But, it means that (Syrian President) Assad has to be part of the equation.”
Paul then talked about how he supported Trump’s actions in Syria as he felt this was another endless war that Obama got us stuck in.
“This is a war that was started with President Obama getting involved in a senseless way in the Middle East again,” Paul concluded. “But now, it looks like we may actually see a realignment and a possible peace plan that will come about because of President Trump’s decisive action.”

If this ceasefire is permanent as Paul hopes then this could the best possible outcome. American troops are out of harm’s way and we have saved the Kurds from the wrath of Turkey.
