RAGING Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan chucked Donald Trump’s controversial “don’t be a tough guy” letter within the BIN, it has been claimed.
Trump informed Erdogan that he would “destroy” the Turkish economic system if he stepped out of line, including: “Don’t be a fool!”
Trump added that he wished to “work out a good deal” and that his counterpart in Ankara was vulnerable to being seen in historical past as “the devil”.
Penned on October 9, the terse letter – leaked on Wednesday – was despatched simply as Trump introduced the shock withdrawal of US troops in northeast Syria.
However a Turkish authorities supply informed the BBC: “President Erdogan received the letter, thoroughly rejected it and put it in the bin.”
Mr Trump wrote: “You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy – and I will.”
‘DON’T LET THE WORLD DOWN’
He added: “I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal.”
The letter, first revealed by Fox Information host Trish Regan, provides: “History will look upon you favourably if you get this done the right and humane way.”
Final week’s sudden removing of the American army presence in northern Syria was seen by US allies the Kurds – a sworn enemy of Turkey – as a stab within the again.

Turkey swiftly deployed troops over the Syrian border to grab Kurdish Syrian Democratic Entrance (SDF) positions in a sequence of bloody battles.
Russia has since crammed the void left by the departing American troops – brokering an alliance between the SDF and forces aligned to the Syrian authorities.
The awkward deal between Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad – a detailed ally of Moscow – and the courageous anti-ISIS SDF successfully leaves the destiny of the Kurds within the untrustworthy fingers of Vladimir Putin.
