Trump announced the beginning of withdrawal of troops from Syria and threatened Turkey
The US President Donald trump has threatened Turkey with ruin, if after the departure of American troops from Syria Ankara in the course of their operations will be attacking the Syrian Kurds. About this he wrote on Monday, January 14 in Moscow, on Twitter.
The American leader said that the upcoming withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, “long overdue”, while he clearly outlined what will happen to Turkey if it continued to attack Syrian Kurds, who are us allies in the region.
“We emptied Turkey economically in that case, if they attack the Kurds,” said the White house.
Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining territorial caliphate ISIS hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms. Turkey Will devastate economically if they hit Kurds. Create a 20 mile safe zone….

Trump also lamented the fact that Russia, Iran and Syria have become the biggest beneficiaries of the long-term policy of the United States to destroy ISIS (a terrorist group banned in Russia) in Syria.
We also win, but it’s time to bring our troops home. Stop the endless war!
On 12 January it was reported that Turkish authorities continued redeployment of armored vehicles to the military units stationed on the border with the Syrian Arab Republic. 20 January 2018 Turkey is “operation Olive branch” in Syria, which is directed against forces of the Kurds.
As the newspaper The Wall Street Journal, January 5, Turkey is ready to assume primary responsibility in the fight against ISIS in Syria after the U.S. decision to withdraw its contingent. Against this background, Ankara has asked Washington to provide military support.
Order the complete removal of American troops from Syrian President trump gave in December 2018, saying the defeat of the forces of the terrorist group.
At the beginning of 2019, he agreed to extend the deadline for the withdrawal of us troops up to four months, and later said that was never a supporter of any hasty withdrawal of US troops from Syria.
