Turkey’s Foreign Minister Just Trolled Trump During Interview, Calls Him A Joke
Speaking to the BBC’s HARDtalk this Friday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu couldn’t help but laugh at Donald Trump’s latest threat of sanctions over his country’s attack on Northern Syria.
Cavusoglu claimed that Trump’s erratic tweeting about the issues going on in Turkey and Syria are not doing anything to help the situation.
“Different voices, different positions are coming from the United States, because of the differences between the administration, the State Department, Pentagon, and this and that,” he said.
According to Cavusoglu, there was never a “green light” from the US for the invasion, claiming that the invasion was only launched after the US and the Kurds did not “honor their commitments,” leaving his country with no choice but to invade.
He also said that Trump’s sanctions were meaningless and Turkey has “taken enough measures” to ensure they have no effect on its economy.
