Senator Graham Goes Scorched Earth On Turkish President
Earlier this year Trump decided to withdraw troops from northern Syria leaving the Kurds to fend for themselves against Turkey. The move upset many as the Kurds helped us take down the terrorist group ISIS. We stopped Turkey from continuing their invasion by threatening sanctions. Turkish President Erdogan recently visited the White House, so Trump gave the Senate a chance to voice their concerns directly to the Turkish president. Senator Lindsey Graham did not hold back.
“South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham ripped into Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a tense Oval Office meeting Wednesday over the country’s invasion of Syria and attacks on America’s Kurdish allies, according to aides and the senator himself.
While in Washington, Erdogan met with President Trump and several Republican senators at the White House. Fox News is told there were “a lot of people with a lot of gripes” during the meeting. At one point, according to aides, Graham “called Erdogan out on his B.S. that Turkey has been fighting ISIS.” While all the senators expressed their issues with Erdogan, Graham was said to be “on the more aggressive side.”
According to sources, Graham told Erdogan, “You have done something no one thought was possible. You have united the US … against [Turkey].”
“Erdogan pulled out his iPad to show the senators a propaganda video depicting the Kurds as terrorists.
On Thursday, Graham confirmed the video incident and said he asked Erdogan, “Do you want me to get the Kurds to play a video about what your forces have done?”
He said he was especially infuriated by Erdogan’s claim to have done the heavy lifting in the battle against ISIS, considering all the casualties sustained by Kurdish forces.”
Graham really let him have it. Where was Turkey when we needed them to fight ISIS?
