The Trump administration helped broker an international agreement this week ending violent clashes between Turkey and Kurdish forces in northern Syria; with the President hailing the deal as a “great day for civilization.”
The resolution comes after years of Obama officials and senior aides -including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry- saying “Assad Must Go” on multiple occasions.
“The world will not waiver, Assad must go,” said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“We agree, that Assad needs to go,” added then-President Barack Obama.

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