Trump says he will 'wipe out' Turkey's economy if it wipes out the Syrian Kurds

Asked by a reporter on Wednesday (October 9) if he was concerned Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will wipe out the Kurds, Trump replied: "I will wipe out his economy if that happens." "I've already done it once with Pastor Brunson," Trump said referring to U.S. sanctions slapped on Turkey over the detention of an American.

"I hope that he will act rationally," he said at the White House.

Turkey attacked Kurdish militia positions in northeast Syria on Wednesday, pounding them with air strikes and artillery barrages in a cross-border military operation just days after U.S. troops pulled back from the area.
