"Although Turkey’s opposition is extremely unlikely to work with the Biden administration against Erdoğan, they will quietly welcome any sharp criticism and pressure from the Biden White House in the hope it will force Erdoğan to take democratising steps."

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son-in-law, known for his ties to the Trump White House, said he was leaving his job. Turkey’s tumbling lira is thought to be a major reason, but the U.S. election may be involved too.

TRPresidentTrump’s departure from the White House leaves a large hole in President Erdogan’s US policy. Despite some tough words Mr Trump has, almost single-handedly, held back sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of the Russian S-400 missile defence system

Ten days after Erdogan visits Trump in the White House, Turkey flies NATO aircraft to test its new Russian S400 missile system, as Turkish-backed extremists reportedly continue operations in NE Syria. Embarrassing.

Erdogan tried a similar gambit with VP Joe Biden in a meeting at the UNGA in September 2016. Biden said, sorry, the White House can’t intervene in a criminal matter. #Protip : Right answer.

If the president cares so deeply about rooting out corruption, why did he bring Erdogan to the White House just last week & why would he meet with Putin privately on multiple occasions? His investigation was never about corruption. It was always about personal, political gain.

New: As Sen. Graham was leaving the Oval Office, senior White House staff asked him to return to the Senate and block the Armenian genocide resolution — a measure that would have infuriated Erdoğan.

Erdogan threatened Europe last week with releasing ISIS fighters into Europe along with 4 million refugees flooding them. Now Trump is hosting him at the White House. I really don’t think it’s just Putin who has him by the balls anymore.
