US could mediate 'deal' between Turks and Kurds: Trump

Washington (Web Desk): US President Donald Trump has suggested that Washington could mediate between Turkey and Kurdish groups.

"We have one of three choices: Send in thousands of troops and win Militarily, hit Turkey very hard Financially and with Sanctions, or mediate a deal between Turkey and the Kurds!" Trump tweeted.

“We defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate and no longer have any troops in the area under attack by Turkey, in Syria. We did our job perfectly! Now Turkey is attacking the Kurds, who have been fighting each other for 200 years...,” the US president added.

Trump’s suggestion came after Ankara launched a military offensive against Kurds who until recently were backed by the United States.
