Trump to impose sanctions on Turkey over actions in Syria

Source: Politico | October 14, 2019 | Evan Semones

President Donald Trump announced Monday that he will issue an executive order imposing “powerful” sanctions against Turkey for its incursion into northeast Syria.

“The United States will aggressively use economic sanctions to target those who enable, facilitate, and finance these heinous acts in Syria,” Trump said in a statement. “I am fully prepared to swiftly destroy Turkey’s economy if Turkish leaders continue down this dangerous and destructive path.”

Trump has come under fire for his decision to pull back U.S. troops from northeast Syria, leaving top Pentagon officials and national security leaders caught off guard.

    Pence has absolutely no conscience. Trump and the GOP OWN this. Don’t put lipstick on a pig and try to sell it to us as a beauty queen. They really have a very low opinion of our intelligence. The only people who are going to fall for this are Trump’s true believers because they have to. The rest of us can smell the stench and hear the oinking from one end of the country to the other. And we know exactly where it is coming from.
