SOT, Donald Trump, President of the United States: "Mike [Pence] is getting ready to make a big trip. He'll be leaving tomorrow. We have a delegation leading today. And Mike [Pompeo] is heading it up with Secretary Pompeo. They'll be leaving tomorrow. And we're having very strong talks with a lot of people. We want to bring our soldiers back home after so many years. And they're the greatest warriors in the world. They're policing. They're not a police force; they're a different kind of a force. We want to bring our soldiers back home. And we're being very tough on Turkey and a lot of others. They have to maintain their own properties now. They have to maintain peace and safety. And we'll see what happens — the delegation. We're asking for a ceasefire. We put the strongest sanctions that you can imagine, but they get a lot. We have a lot in store if they don't — if they don't have an impact, including massive tariffs on steel. They ship a lot of steel to the United States. They make a lot of money shipping steel. They won't be making so much money."

SOT, Donald Trump, President of the United States: "Robert Lighthizer, how are you doing with trade with other countries? Doing all right? All he does is contracts. He does contracts. In fact, he probably wants to leave now because he's got another contract. We just did one with Japan. We just did one with South Korea. China is happening. Mexico, Canada is happening, if they can ever get it approved. I doubt they will because it's Nancy Pelosi. They're too busy working on impeachment. And, by the way, we just hit the greatest economy we've ever had. "Let's impeach the President." Isn't that a good idea? I wouldn't worry about it, fellas. I wouldn't worry about it. Don't — don't worry too much. How are we doing, Roy? Okay in the Senate? I hear we're looking very good. I hear our senators — they're the greatest."

"We're asking for a ceasefire. We put the strongest sanctions that you can imagine, but they get a lot. We have a lot in store if they don't — if they don't have an impact, including massive tariffs on steel."
Turkey started a military offensive dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring' began on October 9, after US troops were withdrawn, with the aim of creating a 'safe zone' in northern Syria cleared of Kurdish forces.
