Sen. Hawley supports Trump’s actions with Turkey

Republican and Democratic lawmakers ripped President Trump’s decision to pull American troops out of northern Syria. Missouri U.S. Senator Josh Hawley was not one of them.

The Republican said on 93.9 The Eagle’s This Morning with Gordon Deal on Wednesday that strong international sanctions can keep Turkey from slaughtering Kurds.

“We can walk and chew gum. We can hold the Turks accountable, while also reducing our overall troop presence in the region and getting focused on the threats that are really pressing to us, which are counter-terrorism and ultimately China.”

Turkey agreed this week to permanently stop fighting Kurdish forces in Syria.
