On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that he could no longer “keep track” of the United States President Donald Trump’s Twitter posts as tensions escalate over Ankara’s attack against the Kurdish Militants in Northern Syria, reported source.
President Erdogan told sources that “when we take a look at Mr. Trump’s Twitter posts, we can no longer follow them. We cannot keep track.”
Last week, Turkey has started an operation to drive back Syrian Kurdish Militants from Northern Syria, after the United States has decided to pull out 1000 troops of the region.
This withdrawal was considered as a green-light for the White House for the Turkish attack.
After facing a massive backlash at home, President Trump has issued a series of conflicting statements, at times threatening Ankara, and at others, recommended the United States had no role in the war between Northern Syria and Turkey.
President Trump announced in a typically contradictory tweet, “Big sanctions on Turkey coming! Do people really think we should go to war with NATO member Turkey? Never-ending wars will end!”
During an interview with the Turkish Journalist, President Erdogan has shared an anecdote from his telephonic conversation with the US President this week.
President Erdogan has said that “I told Trump: ‘You get very angry with the media from time to time. You are now under their influence. Don’t listen to them, you are a strong leader. This does not befit a strong leader’.”
