Remember when Erdogan’s goons beat the loving shit out of a bunch of protesters outside the White House and got away with it?
White House confirms authenticity of Trump letter to Erdogan, dated 10/9: “History... will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool! I will call you later.” First reported by Fox Business.
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.
President @realDonaldTrump held a joint press conference with President Erdogan at the White House this afternoon. Turkey is a NATO ally and strategic partner, and diplomacy between our nations is essential to securing a peaceful, prosperous future for our citizens.
While President Trump storms out of White House meetings with Democrats, he rolls out the red carpet for autocrats. President Trump continues to demonstrate an uncanny ability to get rolled by autocrats like Erdogan and Putin without getting a thing in return.
EXCLUSIVE: The White House says that it “has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea.” But a senior adviser to Erdogan, @Gulnuray , tells me: “President Trump and President Erdogan have reached an understanding over precisely what this operation is.”
