WATCH: Next To Merkel, Trump Boasts About Stealing Northern Syria’s Oil

JakeThomas

President Trump said the U.S. has "soldiers where the oil is" in Northern Syria, adding, "That's the way I like it."

In this clip, President Donald Trump, standing next to Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, engages in both self-pity and boastfulness when he discusses the troop pullout from Northern Syria and the theft of the region’s oil:

"Maybe someday they'll give me credit, but probably not ... that border is a mess for long time. We pulled our soldiers out and took over the oil. We have soldiers where the oil is -- that's the way I like it."

...the bottom line, "is it's about the oil." The lives of our Kurdish allies don't matter. The fact that Russia has moved into the region (even taking over a former US base) doesn't matter. All he cares about is profit and his own image.

I keep questioning why is a despotic regime like Turkey, which has a policy of genocide and ethnic cleansing, a member of NATO? Why are we bowing to them when like Mr. Trump, they only care about themselves and not other members of the Organisation (Namely Poland and Estonia which are threatened by Russian adventurism).
