Trump "We have a great relationship with the Kurds," he began. "We're with them now, we get along with them."

Then he kept talking: "And, by the way, I think the president [Erdogan], he may have some factions within the Kurds, but I think the president has a great relationship with the Kurds," Trump continued. "Many Kurds live currently in Turkey, and they're happy and they're taken care of."

Erdogan's pushed back on Turkey's conflicts with the Kurds, maintaining that the Kurdish forces in Syria are "terrorist organizations."

"These are terrorist organizations and they are the offshoots of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers' Party)," Erdogan said.

btw, Erdogan is a dictatorship and are now buying weapons from Russia, although they are a member of NATO.

Turkey removes four more Kurdish mayors over alleged terror links

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey removed four more mayors on Wednesday as part of a widening government crackdown on the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), bringing to 20 the number of mayors who have been dismissed after being elected earlier this year.

Trump's policies have been a debacle. There isn't a cohesive thread or guiding principle set that he is following. It seemsto be like he is winging his decisions or making them to help another country or ??. The best analogy I've heard is that we have a 6 year old Anthony Fremont running policy and anyone who disagrees with him is sent out to the cornfield. (ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...fe_(The_Twilight_Zone) >>>>>>> The closing narration for that episode goes: No comment here, no comment at all. We only wanted to introduce you to one of our very special citizens, little Anthony Fremont, age 6, who lives in a village called Peaksville, in a place that used to be Ohio. And, if by some strange chance, you should run across him, you had best think only good thoughts. Anything less than that is handled at your own risk, because if you do meet Anthony, you can be sure of one thing: you have entered The Twilight Zone.

North Korea is back with the threats too.

Not that any of this is surprising, we knew Trump was incapable long before he ever took office.

He did. His friend Kim told him don't worry about my media presence, the threats, the new alliance with our mutual friend Putin or our oldest fried China, just know that we are bothers from other mothers and that's just the party line to keep the masses occupied. Oh yeah let's never put anything in writing.

As I understand it, the Russian S-400 is a superior system. The Turkish dictator wants the best, and he's much tougher than the american baby king.

I'm keeping missile shield from Russia, says Erdogan

President Erdogan of Turkey rejected an appeal by President Trump yesterday to abandon his purchase of a Russian missile defence system.

Despite the enthusiasm the two men showed when they met in the White House, it became clear that they had failed to restore the battered relationship between the two Nato allies.

Mr Trump dismissed recent criticism of Mr Erdogan by congressmen and gave his counterpart a warm reception. The Turkish president said as he flew home, however, that he would not give up the Russian S-400 missile system, although he was happy to buy the US Patriot system.

Installation of the S-400 system, which has begun, has come to symbolise Turkey's growing closeness to Russia.
