Trump: We’ve Taken Control Of Middle East Oil [VIDEO]

CBS News reports:

President Trump insisted Friday that Kurdish allies who were being forced from northern Syria to avoid slaughter are “very happy about the way things are going,” describing the already breached ceasefire brokered with Turkey like a business deal.

The president also said the U.S. has taken control of oil in the region, although it’s unclear what he meant by that. “We’ve taken control of the oil in the Middle East, the oil that we’re talking about. The oil that everybody was worried about. We have, the U.S. has control of that,” he said.

The Kurds were the biggest U.S. ally helping to defeat ISIS in northern Syria. Earlier this month, Mr. Trump ordered U.S. troops to pull out of the region. Shortly after, Turkey invaded, killing hundreds, displacing thousands and allowing ISIS prisoners to escape from detention facilities.
