Rep. Ro Khanna: Does Trump care about non-American lives?

As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Representative Ro Khanna is a lead supporter of the resolution to condemn President Trump’s recent actions in northern Syria. As many as 300,000 civilians have been displaced in Turkey’s assault on Kurdish-controlled areas, which was virtually greenlit by Trump when he abruptly withdrew U.S. troops stationed at the Turkey-Syria border. The House resolution rebuking the move passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 354 to 60. “We have a tremendous amount of leverage with Turkey. We could have gotten a deal with Erdogan that would have prevented this kind of invasion. We give them military support, we give them economic support, they are a NATO ally — there was no consideration of that with the Trump administration,” says Khanna. Trump’s remarks reveal “what he is thinking, and that he does not have any concern for non-American life.”
