Amid escalating attacks by the Turkish military against Kurdish forces in northern Syrian towns, President Trump posted a series of statements on Twitter Sunday morning.

Turkey launched their attack after President Trump suddenly pulled U.S. troops out of the area last week.

The Kurds, who have been America’s allies in the fight against ISIS, were guarding thousands of ISIS fighters and their families being held in prisons and camps. Sunday morning it was reported that at least 750 ISIS affiliates escaped from a camp where they were being held.  This follows an earlier incident where at least five ISIS fighters had escaped from a prison. The Kurds have stated that guarding the ISIS fighters in prison is now no longer a priority.

President Trump posted the following tweets Sunday morning:

Very smart not to be involved in the intense fighting along the Turkish Border, for a change. Those that mistakenly got us into the Middle East Wars are still pushing to fight. They have no idea what a bad decision they have made. Why are they not asking for a Declaration of War?

Do you remember two years ago when Iraq was going to fight the Kurds in a different part of Syria. Many people wanted us to fight with the Kurds against Iraq, who we just fought for. I said no, and the Kurds left the fight, twice. Now the same thing is happening with Turkey……

…..The Kurds and Turkey have been fighting for many years. Turkey considers the PKK the worst terrorists of all. Others may want to come in and fight for one side or the other. Let them! We are monitoring the situation closely. Endless Wars!

Republican senator Lindsey Graham, once a staunch supporter of Trump, has blasted him for his decision to pull U.S. troops away from Syria and allow Turkey to invade.  Trump tweeted:

Dealing with @LindseyGrahamSC and many members of Congress, including Democrats, about imposing powerful Sanctions on Turkey. Treasury is ready to go, additional legislation may be sought. There is great consensus on this. Turkey has asked that it not be done. Stay tuned!
