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