"Turkey's recent offensive against a key U.S. ally in Syria did not stop President Trump from honoring Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan with a White House visit and joint press conference. Throughout the afternoon on Wednesday, the president had approving words for the authoritarian leader, whose military invaded northern Syria and forced out America's Kurdish allies.
"I'm a big fan of the president, to tell you that, and I know that the ceasefire, while complicated is moving forward, and moving forward at a very rapid clip," Mr. Trump said during his joint news conference with Erdogan in the White House's East Room.
Following the first day of public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, Mr. Trump claimed he did not recall a conversation with U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland regarding "investigations," a conversation top diplomat to Ukraine Bill Taylor testified that an aide overheard. The president insisted that was the first time he heard of such a conversation. Mr. Trump said he had no time to watch a "minute" of the impeachment proceedings because he was too busy meeting with Erdogan. But the president did reiterate his desire to know who the anonymous whistleblower is."
