Trump Said He Wants To Mediate Between Turkey And The Kurds

President Donald Trump hopes to mediate between Turkey and the Kurds.

According to Reuters, this comes after Turkey’s offensive on U.S.-allied Kurds in northeast Syria.

Trump said the U.S. has three options: send in troops, hurt Turkey financially or mediate a deal.

He said Turkey knows where he stands in the situation and doesn’t think Americans want more soldiers deployed.

Trump said: “We are going to possibly do something very very tough with respect to sanctions and other financial things.
