Trump Threatens To 'Devastate' Turkish Economy Over Syrian Kurds

Trump threatens to 'devastate' Turkish economy over Syrian Kurds

US President Donald Trump has threatened to "devastate Turkey economically" if it attacks Kurdish forces in Syria following a planned pullout of US troops.

In two tweets on Sunday, Mr Trump said that he did not want the Kurds to provoke Turkey either.

US forces have fought alongside a Kurdish militia in northern Syria against the Islamic State (IS) group.

Turkey, however, regards the People's Protection Units (YPG) as terrorists.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has spoken angrily about American support for the group and vowed to crush it. Turkey's foreign minister has said the country "will not be deterred by any threat".

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Trump: We'll devastate Turkey economically if they 'hit Kurds'

The US president also demands a 20-mile safe zone after US troops leave Syria but does not say who should pay for or maintain it.

US President Donald Trump has warned Turkey that it faces economic devastation if it attacks Kurds after US troops leave Syria.

Mr Trump said on Twitter: "Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS [Islamic State] territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions.

"Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms.

"Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds.

"Create 20 mile safe zone."

Mr Trump gave no details as to who would create, enforce or pay for this safe zone.
