‘It Was Me Who Captured Them’: Trump Trashes Obama, Takes Credit For Personally Capturing ISIS





President Trump on Monday defended his widely condemned decision to abruptly withdraw US troops from Syria and abandon the Kurds, who were American allies in the fight against ISIS.

“Plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflicts on their borders,” Trump told reporters at a cabinet meeting Monday in the White House, according to a pool report.

“ISIS was all over the place… it was me…who captured them,” Trump claimed.



After criticizing President Barack Obama, Trump went so far as to say it was his administration that wiped out the ISIS caliphate in Syria.

“We. We. Not Obama. We captured them,” Trump repeatedly claimed.

“I’m the one who did the capturing,” Trump insisted. “I’m the one who knows more about it than you people or fake pundits.”

On his unpopular decision to abandon the Kurds in northeast Syria, Trump said we have a “good relationship with the Kurds, but we never agreed to protect the Kurds.”




Trump said the US supported them for 3½ to 4 years but “we never agreed to protect the Kurds for the rest of their lives.”
