The day Turkish forces crossed the border of Syria; Donald Trump sent a letter to Turkish President and warned him not to be “a fool, a tough guy”.

The White House released a letter that was written by Donald Trump, which says, “History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way” the letter reads. “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.”

Further adding his favorite catchphrase, he said, “Let’s work out a good deal!”

He added, “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.”

The letter was dated 9 October; the day turkey launched its offensive against the Kurds.

however, many international Newspapers consider the letter as bizarre, nasty, brash, and lacking any political delicacy.

Nothing to do with us

Kelly Magsamen, a former official who worked with both administrations under Bush and Obama said, “Having helped draft a few presidential letters to foreign leaders, I want you to know that this is not what they normally look like”.

On Wednesday he told, “It has nothing to do with us”, as Trump is doing everything on his own whether it’s his efforts to mediate the conflict in Syria or withdrawing troops.

“I view the situation on the Turkish border with Syria to be, for the United States, strategically brilliant,” the president said.

The way how the letter got out it clearly shows that American Foreign policy is in Trump’s hands and is run by his own unembellished words. However, President Erdogan is upset about the whole thing. “I will call you later,” the commander in chief ends the letter.

  • Salam dear, the writer of this blog.
    You mentioned more than once this phrase “offensive against the Kurds”… Which is very biased. These subtle details are crucial to build perceptions. In reality Turkey hasn’t started “offensive against kurds” but only against the miscreants who have foreign anti-muslim agendas.
