‘Don’t be a fool!’ Trump threatens to destroy Turkey’s economy over Syria invasion in letter to Erdogan

Oct 18 2019

ARK News: US President Donald Trump urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to make a deal with the Syrian Kurds in a letter, warning history will condemn him as “the devil” and the US will destroy Turkey’s economy if he refuses.

“You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy - and I will,” Trump threatened in the letter, dated October 9.

The US president implores Erdogan to “make a great deal” with the Syrian Democratic Forces, noting Kurdish General Mazloum Kobani Abdi is “willing to make concessions that they never would have made in the past.”

Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!
