Donald Trump Address on U.S. Military Action Against ISIS Leader
Donald Trump delivered an address to the nation in which he declared that U.S. Special Forces conducted an operation in northern Syria that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Trump spoke for a number of minutes before taking numerous questions from the press. During the question and answer session, Trump routinely embellished and exaggerated details that were later proved to be not true. He also claimed that al-Baghdadi's death was more important than the death of Osama bin Laden in 2011.
Donald Trump Statement on Turkey-Syria Border Ceasefire
Donald Trump delivered a statement on a ceasefire between Turkey and Syria in northeast Syria, taking full credit for a deal already brokered by Turkey and Russia that didn't have any input from the United States. Trump said that he wants to “[l]et someone else fight over this long bloodstained sand,” seemingly ignoring the fact that hundreds of US soldiers are still stationed in the area. His speech was met with widespread condemnation from members from not just Democrats, but members of his own party who lamented Americas abandonment of the Kurd's, who have been longtime allies in the fight against ISIS.
