Turkey’s Erdogan is a Foe, Not a Friend

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

President Trump meets today with Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is intent on becoming the next Caliph, or ruler, of a new Sharia-supremacist empire. Ironically, Topic A of their conversation is supposed to be bilateral cooperation in destroying the Islamic State – a group that also seeks the restoration of the Caliphate and has enjoyed Erdogan’s support.

Mr. Trump has been working hard to establish a personal rapport with foreign leaders – even those with agendas directly at odds with America’s. It would be a serious mistake, however, to paper over differences with Erdogan’s Turkey, which has ceased to be a reliable ally – whether with respect to the global jihad or just about anything else.

Indeed, Erdogan is playing for the other side. He must be held accountable – not rewarded – for collaborating with U.S. adversaries abroad and helping subversive Muslim Brotherhood groups here.
