President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he believes the United States and Russia should be at the “front lines” of the ongoing Syrian civil war.
In a CNN interview with Jake Tapper that aired Wednesday, Trump said he would be on “the front lines” in the fight against ISIS, which he said has taken the lives of at least 500 people and wounded more than 4,000.
“I’m in favor of it,” Trump said.
“I think if we’re in the Middle East, I think we should be there.
I’m very much for it.
I think it’s a bad idea for us to be at this point in time.
I want to be there, I don’t want to go anywhere else.
I don´t want to have a situation where we´re fighting on both sides.
I know the military guys are doing a great job and I know they have great capabilities, but we have to be on both ends of the spectrum. “
We are not fighting on either side, we are fighting on ISIS.
But it has to be done in a way that doesn’t kill people. “
The military is very capable, they have very good weapons, and I believe in that.
But it has to be done in a way that doesn’t kill people.
“What we are doing is going after ISIS. “
They are killing people, they are torturing people, and they are killing the Kurds, who are the people who are fighting the Islamic State, who we know are on the other side of this, because they have done a great deal of fighting for the people.””

The president also said he supports Russia´s position that it has “no role” in Syria, a position he said is not backed up by facts.
“Russia has no role in Syria.
Russia has no part to play,” Trump told Tapper.
“Russia is just an ally.
They have no role to play there.
And Russia has been in Syria for a long time.
It was an ally of the United Kingdom.
Russia was a major player.
And I think that if we want to make a deal, if we are going to have any chance of getting this done, then Russia has to have some role.
“They will go in, they will take the oil. “
They will take out the oil, but the price will come down, they may be very nice to Russia, but that is not a role they are in, but if we do have a chance of having a chance at having a real deal, we have got to make it fair and we have gotta make it humane. “
They will go in, they will take the oil.
“But we have a lot of other things to do in the world besides the Middle Eastern. “
“Syria is a very big problem, and it has got to be resolved. “
And that is one of the things I would love to do, to work with Russia to get it done. “
Syria is a very big problem, and it has got to be resolved.
In his CNN interview, Trump also said that he would take military action to help Syrian Kurdish fighters fight ISIS, but added that it would be done “in a very humane way.”””
There is a lot going on in the World, and this is one thing we can’t ignore.”
In his CNN interview, Trump also said that he would take military action to help Syrian Kurdish fighters fight ISIS, but added that it would be done “in a very humane way.”
“The Kurds have been doing a fantastic job.
We are taking them out.
They cannot be the main force in Syria,” Trump continued.
They can do it, and the Kurds will take care of themselves. “
Now, they can take the Kurds out of Syria.
They can do it, and the Kurds will take care of themselves.
But if we have that big of a fight, they would take care, and that is something I am going to try and get done.
And if it does not work out, then I would not do it.”
Asked by Tapper if he believed the United Arab Emirates would take action to assist the Kurds in Syria in the event of Russian-backed forces attacking, Trump responded, “Well, we will see what happens.
I mean, we’re talking about a very, very complicated situation.
But we have other things going on.”
Trump also said the United State should work with Iran to end the U.S. economic embargo against the country.
“We will see how that works out.
We have got a lot to do.
We will see if it works out,” he said.
The president’s comments came a day after Iran said it would “actively work with” the United Sates to remove the U,S.
