    "It was unconventional what I did. Sometimes you have to let them fight a little while. Sometimes you have to let them fight like two kids. Then you pull them apart... Without a little tough love, they would never have made this deal."
    -- Trump

    "For many, many years, Turkey, in all fairness, they've had a legitimate problem...They had terrorists, they had a lot of people in there they couldn't have...and they had to have it cleaned out...This outcome is something they've been trying to get for 10 years...What Turkey is getting now is, they're not going to have to kill millions of people, and millions of people aren't going to have to kill them...Great day for the Kurds. It's a really great day for civilization...We've gotten everything we could have ever dreamed of...Everybody is happy...This is an amazing outcome...We will be watching. We will be in charge."
    -- Trump

    "You don't want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don't want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy -- and I will...History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen. Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool! I will call you later."
    -- from Trump letter to Turkey's President Erdogan

    "Our soldiers are not in harm's way, as they shouldn't be, as two countries fight over land that has nothing to do with us. And the Kurds are much safer now."
    -- Trump

    "I hope President Trump is right in his belief that Turkey's invasion of Syria is of no concern to us, abandoning the Kurds won't come back to haunt us, ISIS won't reemerge, and Iran will not fill the vacuum created by this decision."
    -- Sen. Lindsey Graham

    "Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next thousand years."
    -- Trump

    "What we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court, and Chairman Schiff is acting like a malicious Captain Kangaroo."
    -- Rep. Matt Gaetz

    "My childhood was forever traumatized by watching the death penalty trials on 'Captain Kangaroo.' Also scarred by watching the terrorist Dennis the Menace; Lassie, the first trans star, a male dog passing as female; the crime family Andy's Gang; and lone shooter Quick Draw McGraw."
    -- Elayne Boosler

    "I have a little conflict of interest 'cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul. It's a tremendously successful job. It's called Trump Towers -- two towers, instead of one; not the usual one, it's two."
    -- Donald Trump, 2015

    "From the day I announced I was running for President, I have never had a good Fox News poll. Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But Fox News is also much different than it used to be in the good old days... Fox News doesn't deliver for us anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I'm President!"
    -- Trump

    "The Kurds are fighting for their land...They didn't help us in the Second World War. They didn't help us with Normandy, as an example....But they're there to help us with their land. It's a different thing."
    -- Trump

    "Nancy Pelosi knew of all the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan 'Whistleblower' and lawyer. This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle' Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess this means that they, along with all of those that evilly 'Colluded' with them, must all be immediately impeached!"
    -- Trump
