President Donald Trump issued a stern warning letter to Turkish President Recep Erdogan on Wednesday urging him to cut a deal and not do anything foolish in Northern Syria.
“Let’s work out a good deal! 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. I’ve already given you a little sample with respect to Pastor Brunson,” Trump said in his letter.
Trump was referencing Pastor Andrew Brunson, a Christian political prisoner who was held hostage in Turkey for two years. Trump helped to maneuver the Turkish government with sanctions, which facilitated Brunson’s release last year.
“We’re grateful to the president, members of Congress and diplomatic leaders who continued to put pressure on Turkey to secure the freedom of Pastor Brunson,” said Jay Sekulow, who served as Brunson’s attorney, following his client’s release.
Trump has a history of using strength against the Turkish government when it goes rogue, and he makes it clear in his letter that he will not hesitate to do it again if it becomes necessary.
“I have worked hard to solve some of your problems,” Trump continued. “Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal. General Mazloum is willing to negotiate with you, and he is willing to make concessions that they would never have made in the past. I am confidentially enclosing a copy of his letter to me, just received.”
“History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!” Trump concluded.

Erdogan will reportedly meet with Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today to discuss a possible deal.
“At this point, the vice president and I are planning to take off later this afternoon,” Pompeo said during an interview with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo today.
“And we have every expectation that we will meet with President Erdogan. And it’s important, Maria, we need to have this conversation with him directly,” he added.
While Trump is getting ready to place economic sanctions on Turkey, he has remained firm on his stance against bringing troops back into Syria.
“If Turkey goes into Syria, that’s between Turkey and Syria,” he told reporters in the Oval Office on Wednesday. “It’s not between Turkey and the United States, like a lot of stupid people would like us to — would like you to believe.”
“If Russia wants to get involved with Syria, that’s really up to them,” Trump added. “They have a problem with Turkey. They have a problem at a border. It’s not our border. We shouldn’t be losing lives over it.”

UPDATE: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Moved to ICU, Condition ‘Worsening’ After Coronavirus Diagnosis
Johnson was put in the ICU on Monday.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been moved to the intensive care unit after being hospitalized following his diagnosis with COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus.
Johnson was brought to St Thomas’ Hospital on Sunday night merely “as a precaution” because his coronavirus symptoms were not clearing up. Johnson’s administration initially tried to downplay his illness to keep the public from being alarmed.
“Since Sunday evening, the Prime Minister has been under the care of doctors at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, after being admitted with persistent symptoms of coronavirus,” a spokesman said.
However, Johnson’s health is quickly deteriorating, and the government has been forced to admit the seriousness of the Prime Minister’s medical situation.
“Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital,” the spokesman said.
“The PM has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is the First Secretary of State, to deputise for him where necessary. The PM is receiving excellent care, and thanks all NHS staff for their hard work and dedication,” they added.
Johnson addressed the British people on his Twitter account earlier today, indicating that he is still on the job regardless of his worsening condition.
“Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went into hospital for some routine tests as I’m still experiencing coronavirus symptoms. I’m in good spirits and keeping in touch with my team, as we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe,” Johnson wrote in a tweet.
Politicians from all sides of the aisle are wishing Johnson the best as he fights for his life in the ICU while afflicted with the oft-deadly coronavirus.
“Terribly sad news. All the country’s thoughts are with the Prime Minister and his family during this incredibly difficult time,” new Labour leader Keir Starmer wrote in a tweet.
Scotland First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote in a tweet: “My thoughts are with the PM and his family – sending him every good wish.”
“My thoughts tonight are with @BorisJohnson and @carriesymonds. I know he’ll be getting the best care possible and will come out of this even stronger,” tweeted Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
“Praying for the Prime Minister’s swift recovery tonight,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan wrote in a tweet.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor Johnson’s condition and provide updates as his health improves or worsens.
