TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Pro-Kurdish protesters gathered outside the White House Wednesday to censure Erdogan's visit and slam Trump’s abandoning of Kurds ahead of Turkey's assault on Syria.
"America Stand With Your Kurdish Allies," read one sign, according to Reuters.
"We've been friends for a long time, almost from Day 1. We understand each others' country. We understand where we are coming from," Trump told Erdogan in the Oval Office. "We're also talking about the trade deal...Frankly, we're going to be expanding our trade relationship very significantly."
The meeting was held amid Turkey’s decision to purchase the Russian S-400 system, which the US says could aid Russian intelligence and threaten a vital American aircraft, the F-35 fighter jet.
