Trump calls Turkey's military offensive in Syria 'a bad idea' after allowing invasion

The comment was made in a statement released by the White House, in which he claimed Turkey is committed to ensuring the safety of civilians, in spite of concerns that the country will target Kurdish fighters who helped fight against the Isis insurgency there.
