The Kurds didn’t help us in Normandy, but Trump didn’t help us in Vietnam either. What’s the difference?

Trump is right, where were they and where were they at Gettysburg and I want to know where they were when I had a fight with Darren Clark and his brother at school when I was 9 years old.  If stupidity ever becomes valuable we could make a fortune mining his head.He will go down as the most corrupt and stupid president ever, the name Trump will become infamous and his grandchildren will suffer, while his children will just write books about how bad a father he was.

I’m Kurd and l don’t care if Trump pull out USA solider out of Syria, but Trump has no right to give Turkey green light to attack the Kurdish for what the Kurdish have fighting for! WeKurdish just fight for justice, human rights and freedom. The problem is with USA presidents is? That they have always played the BIG DADDY for the world.All the USA presidents love to be a rule of the world and they are. So, Trumps words for the world is first and last words. The world listens, because USAsince the world war 1 have taking a… Read more »

That’s easy for Trump to say , the only battle he has ever had is with his hair, ego and bankruptcy.A disgusting sad decision. To betray those that potentially have saved so many. Absolutely flabbergasted. I will Certainly change my attitude towards Trump now. I love America but I dislike Trump.
