I read it last night and thought it was so incredibly awful that there was no way it could be real, but the White House verified its authenticity.Okay.... can we talk about this letter?
Trump wrote a letter warning Erdogan not to be a 'tough guy' over Syria, telling him history will look upon him 'forever as the devil if good things don't happen'Trump also said in the aggressive letter to Turkish President Erdogan he didn't want to be "responsible for destroying the Turkish economy."www.businessinsider.com
Holy.... geez I just don't know how he can see these things as wins for him. Is he really that blind to reality? Wowza...
NPR's Steve Inskeep interviewed Erdogan adviser Gulnur Aybet this morning. She said that 1) the letter was not taken seriously; 2) the letter lacked "diplomatic finesse"; 3) Turkey's response to the letter was the invasion; 4) the letter was interpreted as a request to negotiate with a terrorist as if they were a NATO partner. https://www.wnyc.org/story/erdogan-adviser-on-turkeys-attacks-in-syria (click forward to 3:40).
