US Senator Chuck Schumer called on the Trump administration to back an independent Kurdish state Wednesday after 93% of Kurds voted Monday in favor of independence from Iraq

"The United States should stand for self-determination for our strongest partners. The Kurds are one of the largest ethnic groups in the Middle East without a homeland and they have fought long and hard for one. Despite this, the Kurds continue to get a raw deal and are told to wait for tomorrow, which is why it’s past due that the world, led by the United States, immediately back a political process to address the aspirations of the Kurds," read a statement from the senator's office.
