Trump Attempts To Intimidate Erdogan In A Personal Letter


US President Donald Trump sent out a letter addressed to his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan in regards to Turkey’s incursion into NorthEastern Syria

The letter, issued from the White House and featuring Trump’s signature, was sent to Erdogan in Ankara, three days after Trump had pulled US troops out of the Kurdish-dominated region which was assumed to be a ‘go ahead’ for an invasion by Turkish forces.

Trump skipped all formalities and cut to the chase with the blatant threat of destroying the Turkish economy if Erdogan chose to proceed with his attack plan.

Trump punctuated his letter to the Turkish leader with light emotional blackmail, imploring Erdogan to “not let the world down”,”don’t be a fool, a tough guy, a devil”, and the like.

He also mentioned that General Mazloum would be willing to negotiate and make concessions. A letter from the General to Trump was also mentioned but not disclosed.

“History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way,” said Trump in the letter.

He finished the address by adding that he would call Erdogan later.
