Erdogan and Trump, Partners in Trump SOHO, Meet at Last (Updated)

Mainstream media gets nothing right, Trump and Erdogan are "mafia dons," and hardly national leaders at all

Turkish officials had billed Tuesday’s meeting as a pivotal moment for the two countries’ troubled relationship, and Trump, sticking to his script, made the expected noises in public. He commended Erdoğan as an important ally in fighting terrorism and singled out the Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK), which both powers regard as a terrorist faction, as a particular threat.

Ignoring his own state department, Trump stayed silent on Turkey’s poor human rights record, which deteriorated sharply after last July’s failed army coup. He promised to press ahead with US arms sales to Turkey, a Nato member. “We’ve had a great relationship and we will make it even better,” he said.

    what disgusting times these are.

    still don’t get how the s400 deal and Gazprom’s turkstream project articulate with all of this. is Putin with the bad guys too? also, where does the rat in ankara stand in matters concerning Iran? lastly, I know this is a ways into the future and anything can happen, but the new silk road project is supposedly planned to run through Turkey. any ideas if the rat in ankara will be on board with that?
