President Donald Trump reportedly excoriated members of the media on Monday after he was questioned about his decision to pull troops out of Kurdish areas of Syria.


"Plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflicts on their borders," Trump said, according to a pool report. "ISIS was all over the place... it was me who captured them."

After criticizing President Barack Obama, the president continued.

"I'm the one who did the capturing," Trump insisted. "I'm the one who knows more about it than you people or fake pundits."
