«Bad Idea» , Says Trump As Turkey Launches Military Operation In Syria.

Washington:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday described Turkey's incursion into northern Syria as a "bad idea."

Trump -- who pulled out US troops from the area in what was interpreted as a green light for Turkey to assault Kurdish militias previously allied with the United States -- insisted that Washington "does not endorse this attack."

The president said Turkey had committed to "ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place -- and we will hold them to this commitment."
