As Joe Biden gets ready to enter White House, US warns India, sanctions Turkey, here's why

In the waning days of Mr. Trump’s presidency, his advisers have run out of patience and, with Congress, are breaking up the White House bromance with Mr. Erdogan in favor of a tough-love strategy toward Turkey. My latest:

"Western diplomats and analysts say there are increasing signs, though, that Turkey’s NATO partners are wary of Erdogan’s adventurism and go-it-alone strategy. Impatience is likely to build quickly next year when U.S. President-elect Joe Biden enters the White House."

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.

Big success on the Turkey/Syria Border. Safe Zone created! Ceasefire has held and combat missions have ended. Kurds are safe and have worked very nicely with us. Captured ISIS prisoners secured. I will be making a statement at 11:00 A.M. from the White House. Thank you!

CORRECTION: A previous tweet misquoted President Trump saying Turkey's invasion into northern Syria “is not our problem.” He said, “They have a problem at a border — it's not our border,” as well as “it’s not between Turkey and the US," according to White House transcript.

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.”
