Trump Sent Batshit Crazy Letter To President Of Turkey

The New Yorker reports:

After President Trump gave Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan the green light to invade northern Syria last weekend, thus unleashing chaos in the region, Trump wrote him a very strange letter, obtained by Fox Business’s Trish Regan.

The message’s theme – that Erdogan should show military restraint – was straightforward, but the prose style and phrasing, which includes the lines “Don’t be a tough guy. Be smart!” are so surpassingly weird in a high-level diplomatic context that many wondered if the note was authentic. It is.
