Sultan Erdogan apparently did not like Trump’s letter threatening to destroy his economy and reportedly “tossed it” in the trash:
FOX NEWS – Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had a simple response to President Trump’s Oct. 9 letter warning him against taking action along the Syrian border: He threw it “in the bin.”
Sources close to Erdogan confirmed to the BBC Thursday that the Turkish strongman “thoroughly rejected” the letter in which Trump threatened to “[destroy] the Turkish economy” if he took military action in Syria following his announcement several days earlier to withdraw all U.S. troops from the northeast of Syria.
Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said.
The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.”
I would imagine he didn’t like it, as the entire world saw his response to the letter as he began bombing Kurdish areas. After all, Trump had already said he was pulling out and that was what Erdogan wanted.
Honestly, if it weren’t for the Kurds making alliances with Assad and Russia, Erdogan would still be bombing his way through the north, running roughshod over the Kurds.
Right now VP Mike Pence and SOS Mike Pompeo are supposed to be meeting with Erdogan to demand an immediate ceasefire, which Erdogan reportedly said yesterday he will not accept. We’ll let you know what happens…
