Trump Exposed the Left with Syria Decision

RUSH: Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo are conducting a press conference as we speak. They are in the U.S. embassy in Ankara, Turkey. They have announced a ceasefire in Syria. Turkey and the United States have agreed to a ceasefire. That means that Pence and Pompeo went over there and told Erdogan, “Stop it. You didn’t have a green light, you know you didn’t have a green light, and stop it,” and it has been stopped. There is a ceasefire. The Kurds are no longer being fired on. Details as they are made public.

RUSH: This is the president this afternoon just moments ago in Fort Worth.

THE PRESIDENT: This is an outcome — regardless of how the press would like to damp it down. This was something that they’ve been trying to get for 10 years. They couldn’t get it without a little rough love, as I called it. I just put out, “They needed a little bit of that at the beginning,” and then everybody said, “Wow, this is tougher than we thought.” When those guns start shooting, they tend to do things. This is an incredible outcome. This outcome is something they’ve been trying to get for 10 years, everybody, and they couldn’t get it — other administrations — and they never would have been able to get it unless you went somewhat unconventional. I guess I’m an unconventional person.

RUSH: He went on to say that sanctions work and that the sanctions are gonna be removed as soon as everything is finalized, and he pointed out… He took a lot of heat for this, including from a lot of Republicans, but he said, “This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats, it’s about our nation,” and he said in this little ceasefire that we just got today, after pulling out the troops, “We got everything we dreamed of,” bringing our troops home, getting ISIS. “Kurds are very happy with the solution,” he said, and you heard him call it “tough love” and “unconventional.”

He said, “This program got results.” He said, “Previous administrations’ people have been trying for this for a decade, but we got it done.” And the press is going to try to discount Trump’s role in this. And what they’re actually gonna do… You mark my words: They’re gonna try to say that the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is the guy who saved Trump’s bacon.
