Harry Dunn's parents and their respective partners have travelled to Washington

President Trump has told the family of Harry Dunn that their case is compelling, but the American driver involved in Harry's fatal crash will remain in the US.

Following the meeting at the White House Harry's mum and dad told Sky News that the president had been respectful and said that their case was compelling and he would look at it again.

However he reiterated that the American position was unchanged and the American woman involved in Harry's fatal accident, Anne Sacoolas, would be staying in the US.

Mrs Sacoolas was also at the White House and offered to meet Harry's parents, but the offer was declined.

TMI: DJT Jr "likes it when I (Kimberly Guilfoyle) play nurse once in a while"

Jonathan Lemire ✔ @JonLemire

Kimberly Guilfoyle begins in San Antonio by saying she has known both President Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr for about 14 years but adds that "I know Donald Trump Jr a little bit better, let's just get out of the way right now."

A mix of laughs and groans from the crowd.

She now adds that, when diagnosing the Democrats as "losing it," that while she is "not a doctor, Junior likes it when I play nurse once in a while"

At one point during call, Erdogan complained about Graham to Trump without knowing Graham was in the room, per people briefed on call.

Mark Hertling: it's not a theoretical civil-military relations issue, it's real, it's shameful

Mark Hertling ✔ @MarkHertling

This “shocking dynamic” from @RichardEngel won’t be forgotten. It will be a major issue of discussion for military professionals for years to come. But now, it’s not a theoretical civil-military relations issue, it’s real, it’s tough for those on the ground, and it’s shameful.

Richard Engel ✔ @RichardEngel

This is a shocking dynamic that history will not forget. The Kurds say they are facing ethnic cleansing by a NATO country, Turkey, as US forces nearby have NO ORDERS TO HELP, only orders to defend themselves and leave Northern Syria.

Erdogan says Turkey will never declare ceasefire in northern Syria: NTV

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-syria-security-turkey-usa-erdogan/erdogan-says-turkey-will-never-declare-ceasefire-in-northern-syria-ntv-idUSKBN1WU2SZ

OCTOBER 15, 2019 / 5:03 PM / UPDATED 13 MINUTES AGO

ANKARA (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan told U.S. President Donald Trump that Turkey will never declare a ceasefire in northeastern Syria, and added that he was not worried about U.S. sanctions over Ankara’s offensive, broadcaster NTV reported on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters on a flight back from Baku, Erdogan said talks with Washington and Moscow on Syria’s Kobani and Manbij towns continued, and added it was “not negative” for the Syrian army to enter Manbij as long as militants in the area were cleared, NTV said.

He also said he told Trump that Turkey would “not negotiate with a terrorist organization” in response to Trump’s mediation offer.

Separately, the Turkish presidency said on Tuesday that Erdogan told Russian President Vladimir Putin in a phone call that Turkey’s incursion into northeastern Syria would contribute to counter-terrorism efforts, Syria’s territorial integrity, and a political solution process.
