CBS News Wednesday, 9 October 2019 ()
After Turkish forces launched airstrikes on Kurdish fighters in northeast Syria, President Trump said the U.S. was "speaking to both sides and seeing what can be made of it." He acknowledged that ISIS fighters in the area could be "escaping to Europe," but he went on to complain that the U.S. was providing security that he said was the responsibility of Europe as well as Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
