Turkey should put up a Trump border fence and send the refugees back. I saw pictures of refugees going from Turkey into Greece and they were all military aged young men. If asked nicely, I am sure POTUS will show them how to do it!!
Pull Turkey’s NATO membership . We can’t let it drag US into that conflict.
