Trump on the Kurds: "They didn't help us in the second World War"

President Donald Trump said that yesterday, even though more than 10,000 Kurds have died helping us fight ISIS.

It used to be that presidents and presidential candidates would argue for their policies by pointing out that "the Cold War is over" (for instance, George W. Bush and Obama have both said those exact words). Now, Trump doesn't want to admit that World War II is over.

He's fine tuning his new slogan: Make America Neville Chamberlain Again.

Technically WWI ended in 2010, whenGermany finally discharged the last of its obligations under the treaty of Versailles. So Trump would be on firmer ground pointing out the Kurds didn’t help defeat the Kaiser.
