CONFIRMED: Insane Letter From Trump to Erdogan Admits He Knew Pullout Would Lead to ‘Slaughter of Thousands’

Published

on

A Fox News anchor posted what appeared to be a parody of a letter President Donald Trump might have written to the President of Turkey, admitting to knowing that if he pulled U.S. troops out of Syria “slaughtering of thousands of people.”

NCRM has independently confirmed via the White House the letter is real, not a parody. Other news outlets have also verified the letter is real.

Many were initially confused by the language of the letter. In it, Trump writes, “Don’t be a tough guy, don’t be a fool.”

“Let’s work out a deal! You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be destroying the Turkish economy—and I will,” Trump also wrote. “Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal.”

Here is the letter, first posted by Fox Business’ Trish Regan:

UPDATE:
LA Times reporter says Trump shared the letter with Senator Schumer during this meeting which Speaker Pelosi cut short.

Biden and Harris Deliver Uplifting Speeches in First Joint Appearance – and Slam ‘Whining’ and ‘Failed’ Trump (Video)

Published

on

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris walked out on stage literally in lockstep, their legs moving in sync. The former vice president appeared in a Wilmington, Delaware high school, both wearing masks, Biden graciously urging Harris to walk in front of him as he approached the podium.

“I knew we were in a battle of the soul of the nation,” the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said as he delivered a positive, motivating speech. “That’s why I decided to run. I’m proud now to have Senator Harris at my side in that battle.”

Biden announced on Tuesday he chose Senator Kamala Harris to be his vice-presidential running mate.

“America is crying out for leadership,” Harris said minutes later. “Yet we have a president who is more concerned about himself than the people who elected him.”

Biden did not shy away from knocking President Donald Trump. “Whining is what Donald Trump does best,” he said.

Biden knocked Trump on the economy – and on his work ethic.

Harris slammed Trump’s egotism.

And his “failed” government:

Both in their speeches mentioned today is the 3-year anniversary of the horrific Charlottesville “Unite the Right” white supremacist and neo-Nazi march, during which an anti-racism activist, 32-year old Heather Heyer, was murdered.

Esper Out? Trump Has Had More Defense Secretaries Than Any Other President – He’s About to Need Another One

Published

on

Turnover in the Trump administration is legendary, far more than under any U.S. president in history. President Donald Trump has already installed five Secretaries of Defense, including three in an “acting” capacity. In the history of the Dept. of Defense, no president has had as many Defense Secretaries, even those Commanders-in-Chief who served two terms.

On Wednesday Bloomberg News reported Trump has been talking about replacing Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.

Astonishingly, the White House responded to the report, and did not deny it.

“President Trump has assembled an incredible team at the White House and across the federal government who have accomplished undeniable successes on behalf of the American people,” the White House said in a statement to CBS News, all of which is a lie.

“We have no personnel announcements at this time nor would it be appropriate to speculate about changes after the election or in a 2nd term.”

Bloomberg News adds: “One person said Esper has told people close to him that he intends to leave regardless of the election’s outcome, meaning he could exit the administration about two months before Trump does, if the president loses.”

“Trump has been frustrated that Esper, who became secretary in July 2019, hasn’t done more to publicly defend him on key issues, including reports that Russia paid Taliban fighters ‘bounties’ for the killing of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.”

Sec. Esper tweeted this after Bloomberg’s report was published. A warning?

Regardless, Esper’s role as Defense Secretary is apparently soon coming to an end.

Watch: Repeated Hatch Act Violator Kellyanne Conway Attacks Kamala Harris for Upholding Law Trump Also Supports

Published

on

The Hatch Act is a federal law that bans certain federal government officials from engaging in political activities while in their role as executive branch employees.

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway is the poster child for breaking that federal law. Her violations have become so blatant that last year the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) recommended to President Donald Trump that Conway should be fired for violating that law. Trump refused, and Conway continues to ignore it, as she did just minutes ago.

Speaking to reporters in her role as a presidential aide Conway, standing in from of the White House, attacked presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

Not only did Conway attack Harris, she did so for Harris upholding the law – a law Conway’s boss, President Donald Trump supports.

Kamala Harris “put people away for marijuana use and then she let go, people, gave plea deals to defendants who had done far worse than marijuana use. She is going to be expected to answer for that record,” Conway told reporters Wednesday.

President Donald Trump supports keeping marijuana as an illegal substance – he even supports executing drug dealers. Joe Biden has suggested he would legalize marijuana, and supports states that do.

Watch:

“I think that this country, we can do two things,” Conway also told reporters. “I think we can stand up and take a moment to applaud when history is made, and then take a moment to say why somebody who seems forward looking would actually bring us backwards as a nation through her record, and her policies and her beliefs. But she’s part of a ticket that has that problem. Sen. Harris cannot cure the flaws and the inadequacies at the top of the ticket.”

Conway did not mention  her boss.
