Trump tweeted out this morning that he’s going to call Turkey’s Erdogan about bringing peace in the Middle East:
Will be speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey this morning about bringing peace to the mess that I inherited in the Middle East. I will get it all done, but what a mistake, in lives and dollars (6 trillion), to be there in the first place!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
This is the man who helped create ISIS and is trying to revive the Ottoman Empire that Western powers finally crushed in 1923.
This is the man who has arrested many journalists and shut down every critical media outlet in Turkey in order to take control of the country, which he did earlier this year when the people barely voted to rewrite the Constitution and make him Sultan.
This is the man who has now undone Ataturk’s legacy of creating a secular Turkey but gutting the army which was there to prevent Turkey from turning Islamic. It is now very Islamic.
And this is the man Trump is calling to bring peace to the Middle East? Ugh.
In related news, more golf!
After Turkey call I will be heading over to Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter, to play golf (quickly) with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson. Then back to Mar-a-Lago for talks on bringing even more jobs and companies back to the USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 24, 2017
