This is, apparently, the letter Trump sent to President Erdogan of Turkey; Trump mentioned it today during his press conference with Italy's Prime Minister. It was dated October 9th, a couple days after the Turkish assault on the Kurds had begun:
"Dear Mr. President:
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.
I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don't let the world down. You can make a great deal. General Mazloum is willing to negotiate with you, and his 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!
I will call you later."
"Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool! I will call you later."
It's so weird that didn't work...
