Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned the EU that if it continues threatening his country he will open the border gates and allow hundreds of thousands of migrants to flood into EU countries.
Serves him right. Wednesday the day he stepped off that plane, Biden’s trip to Turkey was ill fated. Intended to smooth relations frayed by last month’s botched coup, Biden’s visit instead showcased acrimony with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey sent low-ranking officials — including Ankara’s deputy mayor — to greet Biden at the airport. And even before the vice president’s visit ended, the Daily Sabah, a pro-Erdogan newspaper, declared that “Biden wasted a trip, Turkey wasted time.”
Saturday Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the U.S. to extradite a Muslim cleric living in Pennsylvania following a failed military coup.
Tuesday, Charles Krauthammer said on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that “all the happy talk”from the Obama administration about the success of airstrikes in Iraq is “complete nonsense” and noted that Syrian Kurdish fighters are engaged in a final stand against the Islamic State in the city of Kobani.
