[REDACTED COMMENTS: PLACEHOLDER]
I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal. General Mazloum is willing to negotiate with you, and he is willing to make concessions that they would never have made in the past. I am confidentially enclosing a copy of his letter to me, just received.
This prompted me to pull the official version in his public remarks:
Cumhurbaşkanı Erdoğan, ABD Başkanı Trump ile ilgili olarak “Benimle olan münasebetlerinde samimi. Bugüne kadar mümkün olduğunca dürüst davrandı” açıklamasında bulundu.
“Trump has been sincere in his dealings with me. He has been as honest as possible up to now. Of course I have nothing to share, but not. There is, for example, a cover letter from the terrorist who sent him the letter he sent me. it is not appropriate for a terrorist to make a letter in addition to his cover. I condemn this attitude. I have said something to Putin: I do not sit at a table with a terrorist, I will never accept what is at the head of any terrorist organization, as I have ever read, I know, that I have learned that there is war between states. So here “You don’t sit down and negotiate with the head of a terrorist organization, but you sit between states and negotiate.”
He didn’t just rebuff the proposal, he condemned it’s very attitude. Woof.
Humanitarian Crisis Concerns
Just so we can be clear about the kind of things he’s involving himself in that he’s so indignant about.
I mean, there was already a refugee crisis before this latest development in the conflict occurred.
Also, the International Red Cross Tweeted about Iraq today. Probably not a coincidence given the situation there; this is their first Tweet about Iraq and in over two weeks, at least.
Things are going to get worse before they get better.
