"The PKK, which is a part of the Kurds, as you know, is probably, worse at terror and more of a terrorist threat in my ways than ISIS.

"So it's a very, semi-complicated -- not too complicated if you're smart -- but it's a semi-complicated problem," Trump said. "I think it is a problem that we have very nicely under control."
