In an exclusive Sunday morning interview with ABC chief anchor and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos on This Week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo subjected himself to a grilling from a network intent on pinning genocide on the Trump administration.
Immediately after introducing Pompeo to his viewers, Stephanopoulos jumped right to trying to link President Trump’s decision to pull out of Syria with an assumed genocide of the Syrian Kurds by invading Turkish forces:
And we are joined now by the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo. Thank you for joining us this morning, Secretary Pompeo. And let me begin with what we just heard from that Kurdish commander; says the Kurds are not happy, that this is a betrayal that she fears will lead to genocide.
Pompeo schooled his hostile host by sharing a recent report he received, “within the last half-hour,” that there was very little fighting and the ceasefire was holding.
“A little, sporadic smalls fire, a mortar or two. But we got wounded out of a town called Ras al-Ain last night and we're hoping that the SDF forces will move out of those towns and this cease-fire that the Turkish leaders and the SDF leaders agreed to while we were on the ground in Ankara will hold,” he explained.
