"I have a little conflict of interest 'cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul," Trump told Breitbart radio during his campaign. "It's a tremendously successful job. It's called Trump Towers--two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it's two."

We withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in aid from Ukraine, potentially because Trump wanted the country to dig up some dirt on his 2020 rival. Are we now allowing Turkey to come in and massacre the Kurds, because of his business interests?

We don't know, and that's the point. We even can't trust our own president to put America's interests first. It's like Trump's telling take on Saudi Arabia: "They buy apartments from me," he said. "They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much."


this doesn't mean we're quitting Syria altogether, where we still have about 1,000 troops, and bringing Americans home, as Trump has suggested. Right now, we are simply getting out of the way of any Turkish attack.
