Trump Issues Harsh Sanctions Against Turkey Via Executive Order Over Invasion of Syria

Linkedin Share

Now that President Trump has decided to pull American troops out of the region of Northern Syria, both Democrats and many Republicans are crying foul. In other words, POTUS can literally do no right. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.

The nation of Turkey decided to act in a very silly manner once news of the pull-out made waves. Trump wasn’t thrilled will Erdogan’s invasion of Syria and has now announced he’ll be leveling sanctions against the nation.

Will this move by 45 cause Turkey to retreat in some way or another? Will it at least bring Erdogan to the table? Is Erdogan even willing to sit down and talk? So many questions. Here’s what’s up…

From Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he is imposing sanctions on Turkey over their invasion into Syria, saying: “I am fully prepared to swiftly destroy Turkey’s economy if Turkish leaders continue down this dangerous and destructive path.”

Trump’s statement comes after Turkey invaded northern Syria following the president’s decision to pull U.S. troops back from the area.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper told CBS News’ Margaret Brennan Sunday on “Face The Nation” that the decision to pull the troops back came after the administration learned that Turkey was planning on invading the area, regardless if U.S. forces were present.

Enter POTUS:

Some people want the United States to protect the 7,000 mile away Border of Syria, presided over by Bashar al-Assad, our enemy. At the same time, Syria and whoever they chose to help, wants naturally to protect the Kurds….
