I saw many Syrian refugees begging on the streets of Istanbul when I was in Turkey earlier this summer. Little girls would come running up to me asking for lira, sometimes emphatically. I gave on several occasions, but it was impossible to give to everyone. I also visited Bodrum, the resort town where the Syrian boy recently washed up on the beach, making headlines around the world. When I was there, it wasn't yet obvious that Bodrum was about to become Ground Zero for the refugee crisis. It's strange to know I was just walking those beaches and swimming in those waters.

Perhaps Trump could use some of his billions to buy himself a clue about the desperation that drives people into these situations.
