‘Absolutely No Respect for Human Life’: Trump Compares Turkish Assault on Kurds to Two Kids Fighting in a Parking Lot; “The president is talking about genocidal slaughter and hundreds of thousands of war victims like it’s a playground squabble.”
During a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas Thursday night, President Donald Trump compared the Turkish assault on Kurds in Syria that he enabled—which has killed dozens and displaced an estimated 160,000 civilians—to two kids fighting in a parking lot.
“Sometimes you have to let ’em fight,” said Trump to cheers from his supporters. “Like two kids in a lot, you gotta let ’em fight, then you pull ’em apart.”
Trump’s callous and mocking remarks about an attack in which people were maimed, tortured, and executed left observers appalled.
“This little quip speaks volumes,” tweeted S.V. Dáte, White House correspondent for HuffPost. “The president is talking about genocidal slaughter and hundreds of thousands of war victims like it’s a playground squabble.”
The comments, wrote another critic, show the president “has absolutely no respect for human life.”
Trump just continues to embarrass and destroy the credibility of the United States, now at the cost of actual human lives.
