President Trump Promises Sanctions On Turkey

Daily Mail: Donald Trump clobbers Fox News host for saying Turks are 'carving up the Kurds right now and we're just moving out' as he promises 'big sanctions on Turkey' for Syria invasion

* 'Fox & Friends' co-host Brian Kilmeade complained on the air that Turkey is 'carving up the Kurds'
* He blamed Donald Trump for withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria
* President was watching, and vented on Twitter that Kurds may be releasing ISIS prisoners on purpose in order to draw him back in
* Trump complained that European nations whose citizens joined ISIS and were later captured in Syria should take them back

Donald Trump lashed out at a Fox News Channel host on Monday for saying Turkey is 'carving up the Kurds' after the president ordered American forces to begin 'moving out' of Syria.

'Brian Kilmeade over at @foxandfriends got it all wrong,' the president complained on Twitter. He also claimed Kurds in northern Syria 'may be releasing some' ISIS fighters from their prisons as a tactic to draw the U.S. military back in.

The militants, he said, would be '[e]asily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came, but they should move quickly.'
