Donald Trump has said the fighting which has broken out in northern Syria since he ordered American troops to step back from Kurdish areas is nothing to do with the US.
Instead, the President said things are “very nicely under control” in the region where the UN estimates more than 160,000 people have fled their homes in the last few days.
Mr Trump downplayed the crisis that followed his decision to pull out of Syria, which critics say amounted to giving Turkey a green light to invade Syria’s north-east, where it has been attacking Kurdish fighters whom Turkey views as terrorists.
