Trump said in a press conference on Oct 10 (or so), referring to the Kurds:

as someone wrote in this very, very powerful article today, they didn't help us in the second world war, they didn't help us with Normandy [...]

What's the article he is referring to? Of course, we need an educated guess, but if his time reference is correct, there can't be that many candidates...

Apparently the press was curious too... After a hint that it was a Townhall article, it didn't take long to locate it. It's penned by Kurt Schlichter, and it does say pretty much what Trump said:

I generally like the Kurds. I generally dislike the Turks. But they’ve been killing each other for a long time and no one has yet offered a sufficient reason why America should stick its troops in the crossfire between them. [...]

The Kurds helped destroy ISIS, true. It’s also true that the Kurds would have fought ISIS anyway, since the psycho caliphate was right next door. Let’s be honest – the Kurds didn’t show up for us at Normandy or Inchon or Khe Sanh or Kandahar.
