Wow. Sounds like Erdogan is trying really hard to one-up tRump.


Trump would likely call these “good ideas”.


“I’ve had these ideas all along. HILLARY WAS GOING TO DO IT TO YOU. OBAMA WAS! BUT I STOPPED IT. Now, I’m doing it to you. So it’s okay now.”

Make Turkey Great Again.



Joking aaide, Erdogan does indeed want to make Turkey great again.



TrTurkin, it’s not just for breakfast anymore.


I think I spotted a few fingers in that mix.

Two measures are critical to reversing the democratic regression in Turkey America.

Fixed that Washington Post quote.
