President Trump’s hotel in D.C. abruptly canceled a prayer event for the Kurdish people that was scheduled for this week, according to The Washington Post.
The event, “A Night of Prayer for the Kurds,” was planned by Frontier Alliance International (FAI), a nonprofit Christian organization that provides medical aid in the Middle East, The Post reports.
The hotel told FAI administrator Charlene Struebing that they were canceling the event due to “security concerns.”
“They said they’ve gotten a lot of security concerns and they couldn’t accommodate enough security,” Struebing told the Post.
However, a D.C. Police Department spokesperson told the newspaper that it had not “received any information regarding potential security threats or concerns with this event.”
The group’s intentions follow Trump’s recent policy move to remove U.S. troops from the northeastern border of Syria, leaving the Christian Kurds to fend for themselves as Turkish forces launch a massive attack on their position.
