Trump: Kurds ‘are not angels’

WASHINGTON, Oct 16, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – President Donald Trump disparaged the
Kurds on Wednesday, saying the US allies in the war against Islamic State in
Syria “are not angels.”

Trump, who has come under intense criticism for abandoning the Kurds in
the face of a Turkish offensive in northern Syria, told reporters at the
White House that “The Kurds are very well protected.”

“By the way, they are not angels,” he added.
