Former Missouri Senator Jim Talent tells Randy Tobler that President Donald Trump, "did everything he could do for the Kurds, short of sacrificing an overriding American national interest in  the region."

Once it became obvious that Turkey was prepared to go into Syria and remove the Kurds from the region, "Trump said 'OK, well then look, here are the conditions your incursion needs to meet, and if it doesn't we're going to hit you with sanctions."

"That's all we could do if we were not going to go to war with Turkey," says Talent.
