Trump threatens to ‘obliterate’ Turkey’s economy over Syria

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — US President Donald Trump has defended his decision to pull US troops from northeast Syria, clearing the way for a Turkish assault and effectively abandoning the Kurdish fighters who helped them defeat The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) group.

Trump says he’s fulfilling a campaign promise to take the United States out of its involvement with wars overseas.

But after being criticised by Democrats and Republicans who say the decision will increase stability in the region Trump said he would “obliterate Turkey” economically if it went after the Kurds.
