Pres­i­dent Trump has said that he hopes to me­di­ate be­tween Turkey and the Syr­ian Kurds, and also threat­ened to pun­ish Ankara if its of­fen­sive in north­east Syria goes beyond lim­its. Trump tweeted on Thurs­day that the US has three op­tions re­gard­ing the sit­u­a­tion in Syria: “Send in thou­sands of troops and win mil­i­tar­ily, hit Turkey very hard fi­nan­cially and with sanc­tions, or me­di­ate a deal be­tween Turkey and the Kurds,” Xinhua news agency re­ported. “I hope we can me­di­ate,” Trump told the press later when he was asked about the three op­tions.
