Following over four hours of negotiations with Turkish President Recep Erdogan, Vice President Mike Pence announced that he had come to terms on a ceasefire in Syria with the Islamic leader.
Pence made the announcement with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a press conference in the Turkish capitol of Ansara. He confirmed that the deal has the full support of President Donald Trump, and will bring peace and stability to the region.
“I spoke to President Trump just a few moments ago. And I know the president is very grateful for President Erdogan’s willingness to step forward, to enact this cease fire, and to give an opportunity for a peaceful solution to this conflict that commenced one week ago,” Pence said at the press conference.
The deal was hatched a day after President Trump sent a stern letter to Erdogan imploring him to play ball in negotiations or be remembered as a “devil” throughout history.
“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,” Trump said in his letter to Erdogan.
“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 added.
The fake news jumped on a report that Erdogan trashed Trump’s letter shortly after receiving it in a likely attempt to sabotage peace negotiations before they could even get off the ground.
“President Erdogan received the letter, thoroughly rejected it and put it in the bin,” Turkish presidential sources allegedly told the BBC.
The fake news also remarked on how tense the initial encounter looked between Pence and Erdogan as the two leaders met for a photo op earlier today:

Despite the attempts by the fake news to sow division, it appears that Erdogan received the message loud and clear from the President’s letter. Trump’s use of tough rhetoric against the Muslim strong-man helped move Erdogan toward a deal. Trump believes that “millions of lives will be saved” because of this diplomatic triumph.

This deal could NEVER have been made 3 days ago. There needed to be some “tough” love in order to get it done. Great for everybody. Proud of all!

Trump’s decision to take troops out of harm’s way in Northern Syria shows that the U.S. does not have to spill blood in order to help solve conflicts in the Middle East.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
