Trump: US doesn't 'endorse' Turkey's assault on Syria
President Donald Trump said Wednesday the U.S. does not endorse Turkey's military assault on Syria, calling the operation a "bad idea."

 

Trump's written statement was issued hours after Turkey, a NATO ally, launched an offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria, who have helped the U.S. against the Islamic State but are viewed by Turkey as terrorists. Trump's recent decision to pull back U.S. troops leaves those fighters vulnerable.

 

"The United States does not endorse this attack and has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea," Trump said.
