The bottom line on the “deal” with Turkey that @realDonaldTrump is so shamelessly congratulating himself about: Unless it clearly protects Kurds—as opposed to allowing new horrors—it won’t fly with Congress and anti-Turkey sanctions will return harder than ever....
Trump doesn’t seem to understand that our Kurdish allies are very popular with Congress, prompting a rare alliance between Lindsey Graham and Nancy Pelosi. Erdogan, meanwhile, is very unpopular. Trump seems to think his approach to crisis has succeeded. Another huge mistake....
Sen. Graham tells me tonight that congressional Rs and Ds should insist that deal serves our allies before they sign off. That seems right....
