Turkey’s President Erdogan threw Trump’s wild letter threatening him over Syria in the trash

Recommended Posts

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threw away a letter from President Donald Trump in which he warned his counterpart of the consequences of military invasion in Syria, the BBC reported Thursday.

In the October 9 letter, Trump threatened to destroy the Turkish economy if Erdogan did not comply with US wishes and strike a deal with Kurdish forces in Syria.

He also told Erdogan not to be a “tough guy” or a “fool” in Syria.

Turkish presidential sources told the BBC on Thursday: “President Erdogan received the letter, thoroughly rejected it and put it in the bin.”

Trump’s letter departs from the conventional language of diplomatic correspondence, and has prompted widespread ridicule and critcism.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threw a letter from US President Donald Trump warning him of the consequences of his military incursion into Syria “in the bin,” the BBC reported on Thursday, citing unnamed Turkish government sources.

On Wednesday, a letter written by Trump to Erdogan on October 9 was leaked amid heightened criticism of Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria, which effectively greenlit Turkey’s military incursion into the region to fight Kurdish forces known as the YPG. The YPG and US were allies in the fight against ISIS in Syria.

“Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!” the letter said. Its stark departure from the conventional language of international diplomacy left many to wonder whether it was genuine. The White House has confirmed the authenticity of the letter.

Trump also threatened to destroy the Turkish economy if Erdogan did not halt the invasion. “I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy – and I will,” he said.

At that point we would be hopeless, I would actually need to get medical attention from the pure panic.

The real power move would be to bulldoze Trump Towers Istanbul if Trump doesn't win re-election.

He is gonna win, despite all the polls. His stand against China is the key for 2nd term. Others are not important anymore.

But I thought he was supposed to be the best deal maker ever? Pathetic.

Since he showed he can't be trusted, people don't value deals with him anymore.
