In the past few weeks, ABC News spurred controversy, as they lived up to their newly coined title of being ‘Fake News’!
In fact, ABC released the footage on Twitter and on their ABC News Network, of an alleged attack by Turkey on what they said was the innocent Kurdish civilians in the northern Syrian town of Tal Abyad! It aired on October 13, 2019, on World News Tonight, and then the next morning on World News Tonight and Good Morning America. However, within a few hours, it was revealed that the footage wasn’t all that they claimed! In fact, the footage was from a range shoot in Kentucky, despite ABC claiming that it was an attack that was slaughtering the Kurds in Northern Syria!
After they were exposed, ABC took down their video on their site, and they issued a correction and apology, but the footage continues to remain on Twitter, as they allow it to be pushed as truth on Social Media!
Then, on October 16th, President Trump slammed the ABC News Network, as they wrongfully criticized and blamed the President for the Turks attack on the Kurds, which the President didn’t allow to go unchallenged!
In fact, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl asked Trump whether he had “any regret for giving [Turkish president Recep Tayyip] Erdogan the green light to invade?” However, the President’s response was…
“I didn’t give him a green light, and he noted that he wrote a very powerful letter” to Erdogan opposing Turkey’s invasion of Syria, and even offered to release the letter if they would like! The President added…
“And when you ask a question like that, that’s very deceptive, Jon, it’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria, and it turned out that the bombing that you showed on television took place in Kentucky. So, you know. And I’m not even sure that ABC apologized for that. But certainly, it was a terrible thing. I think ABC owes an apology.”
Then, ABC’s Karl tried to change the topic, as he stated that…
Lindsey Graham just said of your remarks that you made in the Oval Office, that if you keep talking like that, “this will be disaster worse than Obama’s decision to leave Iraq.”
The President responded by stating that…
Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next thousand years. … I want to get out of the Middle East. The people of South Carolina don’t want us to get into a war with Turkey — a NATO member — or with Syria. Let them fight their own wars.”
Then, Trump added that…
“You should get your accounts correct. You shouldn’t be showing buildings blowing up in Kentucky and say[ing] it’s Syria because that really is fake news.”

In the end, the President made the right decision, as he moved 50 United States soldiers out of harm’s way, who were there as advisors, rather than soldiers of war! If he hadn’t, Turkey would have likely bombed the city, killing United States soldiers, and started yet another war, in a war that has been ongoing between the Turkish people and the Kurds for centuries!
Regardless, now the hate-Trump media, the Democrats, and war-hawk Republicans now are all-embracing for endless wars, are attacking the President, regardless of the truth, and regardless of the fact that most of them would have condemned him for starting yet another war, had he allowed the soldiers to stay, die, and ultimately costing America yet another major endless war in the Middle East
