Look at this little dictator dictate to the President. This is exactly the kind of intimidation that Trump is standing up to in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
“I am calling on the whole world: never sell your democratic will in return for petty dollars,” Erdogan said.
For once I agree with him. All the countries that receive billions in US foreign aid but don’t like this decision should send back our money immediately.
Erdogan accused Trump of making “threats”.
This thuggish caliph is the one doing the threatening
“Turkish President Erdogan says US must immediately scrap Jerusalem decision,” Agence France-Presse, December 22, 2017:
Ankara, Turkey: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday asked US President Donald Trump to reverse his decision recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital after a UN vote overwhelming rejected the move.
Erdogan had earlier called on UN member states not to be swayed by Trump’s threat to cut funding for countries that backed the motion at the UN General Assembly.
“We welcome with great pleasure the UN General Assembly’s overwhelming support… We expect the Trump administration to rescind without further delay its unfortunate decision, whose illegality has been clearly established,” Erdogan said on Twitter.
“I am calling on the whole world: never sell your democratic will in return for petty dollars,” he had said in a televised speech in Ankara before the vote.
The US decision on December 6 broke with international consensus and unleashed protests across the Muslim world, prompting a flurry of appeals to the United Nations.
At an emergency session Thursday, the UN General Assembly adopted the motion rejecting Trump’s decision by 128 votes to nine, with 35 abstentions.
The measure was sent to the General Assembly after it was vetoed by the United States at the Security Council on Monday, though all other 14 council members voted in favour.
Trump warned that Washington would closely watch how nations voted, suggesting there could even be reprisals for countries that backed the motion which was put forward by Yemen and Turkey on behalf of Arab and Muslim countries.
