Tuesday Top News Executive Summary

Turkey sanctioned, ABC broadcasts fake news, CNN’s vendetta exposed, and more.

Above the Fold


TURKEY SANCTIONED: According to Reuters, “President Donald Trump imposed sanctions on Turkey on Monday and demanded the NATO ally stop a military incursion in northeast Syria.” At the same time, “The Pentagon on Monday announced the official withdrawal of U.S. forces from northeastern Syria,” The Hill reports.

ABC’S FAKE NEWS: “ABC News aired footage claiming to show a Turkish attack on a Syrian border town that was actually from a 2017 video of an American shooting range,” The Washington Free Beacon reveals. Regardless of anyone’s position on Trump’s Syria policy, engineering a crisis is way beyond the pale.
