Trump said Turkey had committed to “ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place – and we will hold them to this commitment.”

“Turkey has committed to protecting civilians, protecting religious minorities, including Christians, and ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place — and we will hold them to this commitment,” Trump said. “In addition, Turkey is now responsible for ensuring all ISIS fighters being held captive remain in prison and that ISIS does not reconstitute in any way, shape, or form.”

Speaking to reporters, Trump said he will “wipe out” Turkey’s economy if Erdoğan tries to take out the Kurds.
