Trump calls Turkish president a fool in leaked letter

Donald Trump

A letter written by US President Donald Trump to Reception Erdogan has been leaked.

The letter sees Trump issuing a warning to the Turkish president whom he advised not to be a fool in his dealings in Northern Syria.

Trump wrote: “Let’s work out a good deal!” Mr Trump said. “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.

“I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal.

“History will look upon you favourably if you get this done the right and humane way. It 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”, added Trump. Recall that Trump pulled US forces from northern Syria in the heat of the escalation between Turkey and the Kurdish forces.
