President Donald Trump is prepared to use military force if ''needed,'' Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday when he was asked about Turkey’s attack on Kurds in northern Syria.

''We prefer peace to war,'' Pompeo told CNBC’s Wilfred Frost in a taped interview that aired on ''Closing Bell'' on Monday. ''But in the event that kinetic action or military action is needed, you should know that President Trump is fully prepared to undertake that action.''
