Apparently Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, felt the best place for Donald Trump’s WWE style “trash talking” letter was in the trash!

Fox News is reporting that the letter, which they first released, in which the president urged Erdogan “not to be a fool,” wound up in the trash bin. According to sources, Erdogan had a simple response to President Trump’s Oct. 9 letter warning him against taking action along the Syrian border: He threw it “in the bin.”

Sources close to Erdogan confirmed to the BBC Thursday that the Turkish strongman “thoroughly rejected” the letter in which Trump threatened to “[destroy] the Turkish economy” if he took military action in Syria following his announcement several days earlier to withdraw all U.S. troops from the northeast of Syria.

Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said.

The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.”

Turkish forces last Wednesday carried out airstrikes and later announced ground troops had invaded northeastern Syria.

Nearly all U.S. troops there have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks, something critics said was the “green light” for Erdogan to act.

“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,” the letter continued.

“History will look upon you favorably 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,” Trump warned.

Turkey Agrees to Ceasefire

And yet, despite his seeming disdain at Trump’s letter, and his cross-border incursion anyway on the day he received it, on Thursday, October 10, Vice-President Mike Pence announced that Erdogan agreed to a US brokered ceasefire. ABC News is reporting that Turkey has agreed to a ceasefire in northern Syria between its forces and their allied rebels and U.S.-backed Syrian Kurds. Pence met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier on Thursday to push for the ceasefire.

“It will be a pause in military operation for 120 hours, while the United States facilitates the withdrawal of YPG (the People’s Protection Units) from the affected areas in the safe zone. And once that is completed, Turkey has agreed to a permanent ceasefire and the United States of America will work with Turkey — will work with nations around the world — to make sure peace and stability are the order of the day in this safe zone,” Pence said at a news conference.

  1. The USA has been involved with peace programs in the middle east for over 20 years. Now it is time to get out and bring them home. Sanction and stop all aide to Countries that don’t satisfy our goals and objectives. Protect Israel at all costs. Any aggressive Country must be severely sanctioned. Iran, Russia and Turkey deserve a keen eye!

  2. Yes , I guess Turkeys President did not like it. To bad, Turkey are not strong in economy so he don’t has many choices. Only thing is if Russia gets involved and Helping Turkey , that’s will be bad. Can’t understand people when like to spend money on war instead helping there on people.

  3. No one should be alarmed at the Turkish domestic reaction to President Trump’s letter to Erdogan.
    The “Ottoman dreamer” would hardly laud the message received from the White House. Erdogan would not divulge all of the content of Trump’s letter, which Trump can certainly reinforce with actions he promised, if Erdogan decides to play dictator outside the limits of Turkey. That would come in the form of Turkish economic hardship, choreographed by Trump, if Erdogan steps out of his dream-contrived world of himself restoring the Ottoman Empire of more than one hundred years ago.
    It was about that time that Turkey lost much of what became of the nations once known of on Europe’s map of early 1900’s and of the Mid-east, plus nations west of Suez which the Turkish military’s iron fist also commanded via the strength of Ottoman military forces reinforcing the Ottoman installed governments along the No. African coast. Resulting also from Turkish (Ottoman)military dictation were today’s Balkan countries where Turkish-Islamic forces kept those nations under control for Islam. To this day, a few of them still exist, such as Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, much of Bulgaria the traditional entrance into the E.U. from the mid-east. For those reasons, Erdogan imagines himself as the conqueror in waiting for another Islamic conquest of Europe.
    Going back in time over a hundred years ago or more, the Ottoman conquest feasted its eyes upon Czarist Russia, which failed miserably. But, it did lead to large Islamic influence in Russia’s Caucasus, where Chechen irregular forces have agitated, bringing frequent Russian military campaigns to assert Russian domination.
    Erdogan cannot control the Kurds, who believe in restoring Kurdistan, resulting in outbreaks of blood-shed in a never-ending war against Turkey which they suspect would reintroduce Turkish genocide.
    Turkey did so in the early 1900’s when it exiled Turkish-Christian Armenians, forcing them to march into the Caucasus in which many Armenians died in this forced march from hunger, disease, and brutal Turkish military. From that moment in time until today, Turkey denies the genocide it perpetrated upon Armenian Christians. Erdogan looks upon that history as glorious for the former Ottoman Empire.
