Trump likens Turkish attack on Kurds to schoolyard fight

While speaking at a rally in Dallas, Trump described his approach to the situation between the Turks and Kurds — a long-simmering conflict that exploded into a military attack after the President gave the green light to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier this month — as “unconventional.”

“Sometimes you have to let them fight a little while,” Trump said.

“Sometimes you have to let them fight. It’s like two kids in a lot, you got to let them fight and then you pull them apart.”
