Armenian American singer and actress Cher tweeted in response to Turkey’s attacks on northeastern Syria.

Her tweets regarding the conflict began on October 9, when she wrote, “Trump & ERDOGAN ARE [the] SAME.” Cher compared the situation in Syria, that the Kurds, Armenians, and Assyrians are facing, to that of the immigrants – seeking asylum – that are being “locked in cages” in America.
