President Obama’s former ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said Thursday that President Trump had “endorsed ethnic cleansing” in comments made to White House reporters about Turkey’s military action in northern Syria.

Trump told reporters earlier Thursday that the Turkish government “had to have it cleaned out.” The remark referred to an area in northern Syria that is home to thousands of Kurdish civilians and some armed militia groups considered by the Turkish government to be terrorist groups. These Kurdish forces assisted a U.S.-backed coalition against the Islamic State (ISIS).

The article goes on to state the following:
