President Trump announced a “permanent ceasefire” between Turkey and Kurdish forces in northern Syria Wednesday; lifting sanctions on Ankara that were imposed following their invasion of the war-torn country.

“President Trump announced on Wednesday that conditions have been met between Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for what he called a ‘permanent ceasefire’ between the two sides and that the United States is lifting sanctions on Ankara that were implemented following the invasion of northern Syria,” reports Fox News.

“I do believe it will be permanent,” said the President. “This was an outcome created by us, the United States, and nobody else…we’ve done something very, very special”

“Big success on the Turkey/Syria Border. Safe Zone created! Ceasefire has held and combat missions have ended. Kurds are safe and have worked very nicely with us. Captured ISIS prisoners secured. I will be making a statement at 11:00 A.M. from the White House. Thank you!” Trump teased on social media before the announcement.

Hillary Unhinged: Clinton Says Trump’s Foreign Policy a ‘Sickening Betrayal’ of His ‘Oath of Office’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.07.19

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton escalated her all-out assault on President Trump Monday; viciously accusing the Commander-in-Chief of “betraying his oath of office.”

“Let us be clear: The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests. His decision is a sickening betrayal both of the Kurds and his oath of office,” posted Clinton on social media.

Clinton made similar statements during a speaking event over the weekend; labeling Donald Trump an “illegitimate president.”

“The President said that he wished China would also investigate the Bidens… Now, it’s in the open. You know, Trump knows he’s an illegitimate president who got illegitimate foreign help,” said Clinton while promoting her new book.

BREAKING NOW: Pence, Pompeo Announce New Turkey-Syria Cease Fire Agreement

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.17.19

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence announced a joint agreement with Turkey that will end violence against Kurds in northern Syria; a move President Trump hailed as a “great day for civilization.”


“The deal is for a 120-hour cease-fire, during which time the Kurdish-led forces could pull back from the roughly 20-mile wide safe zone on the Turkish-Syrian border. All Turkish military operations under the recent offensive known as Operation Peace Spring will pause during that time, and the operation itself will come to an end entirely upon the completion of the Kurdish withdrawal, under the terms of the deal,” reports Fox News.

“This is a great day for civilization,” Trump tweeted after the announcement. “I am proud of the United States for sticking by me in following a necessary, but somewhat unconventional, path. People have been trying to make this ‘Deal’ for many years. Millions of lives will be saved. Congratulations to ALL!”

“Turkey and the United States agree on the priority of respecting vulnerable human life, human rights, and particularly the protection of religious and ethnic communities in the region,” the vice president added.
