McConnell expresses ‘uneasiness’ at Erdogan’s White House visit


Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Ky

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said in a speech on the Senate floor that he had an “uneasiness” at seeing Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan honored with a White House visit on Nov. 13. But McConnell also urged Congress to “remain clear-eyed” about U.S. “vital interests” in the Middle East. McConnell’s statement comes after the U.S. withdrew support for Kurdish allies during ongoing fighting with Turkey along Syria’s northern border. McConnell said, “It is important for the region and the fight against ISIS that Turkey’s incursion into Syria not further jeopardize the anti-terrorism campaign of the Syrian Democratic Forces.”
