Turkish president threatens US over Trump's insulting letter: When the time comes necessary steps...

.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Friday warned the United States that it would pay a price for the letter send by President Donald Trump that warned him that history “will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen” in northern Syria.

The letter, which also advised Erdoğan to not “be a tough guy” or “a fool,” was widely ridiculed in the media for sounding childish. Erdoğan, however, said on Friday that he took the president’s letter as a serious insult to his stature as a world leader.

As reported by the BBC’s Jon Sopel, Erdoğan called out the president’s letter for being out of line with standard diplomatic protocol, and he suggested his country would not forget how the president showed them such little respect.

When the time comes necessary steps will be taken,” the Turkish president said, according to Sopel.

Wow. #Erdogan tells news conference the letter sent by @realDonaldTrump telling him not to be a ‘tough guy’ wasn’t in line with diplomatic or political customs. He said they wouldn’t forget the lack of respect. “When the time comes necessary steps will be taken”

4. Trump: Talk LOUDLY and carry a weak schtick

America's head of state is an ignorant bully, and like most bullies will back down when challenged.

He's making America less than a paper tiger -- more like a paper mache' clown.
