    ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was quoted as saying on Friday that Ankara would retaliate against potential U.S. sanctions over its purchase of Russian defense systems and a natural gas pipeline. U.S. Congress has moved to impose sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of S-400 defense systems from Russia and related to Russia's TurkStream pipeline, which will carry Russian gas to Turkey. Asked about the various sanctions against Ankara, Erdogan repeated that the S-400 deal was already completed. "Now they are saying, 'we will impose sanctions against this' regarding TurkStream," he was quoted as saying. "This is a...

    President Trump is an able politician, but he is seldom praised for his subtlety. At the NATO summit in London, however, he carried the day by precisely those means: he used rhetorical legerdemain to outmaneuver his critics. Much as the media might like to pretend that the recently concluded NATO summit was about NATO when it wasn't. NATO is a sideshow. It is a moribund, rudderless organization — “brain dead” or “obsolete,” depending on whether you want to take your cue from the president of France or the USA.NATO was formed to contain the aggression of a certain nameless communist...

    First Lady Melania Trump looked as though she stepped off the Italian runway while strutting down Downing Street for a reception with Queen Elizabeth II. For her first evening in London, England since last summer, Mrs. Trump went big and bold in a voluminous off-the-runway yellow Compact Drap cape by Valentino. The $3,850 cape, from the Fall 2019 Collection, is a microcosm of creative director Pierpaolo Picciolis codes for Valentino striking colors, volume galore, and a childlike innocence. Mrs. Trump wore the Valentino piece over a custom knit dress by her personal couturier Herv Pierre in a purple-pink...

    President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron held a tense meeting Tuesday on the sidelines of a NATO summit, with Trump at one point telling the French leader he could send him some "ISIS fighters" if he wanted them. Would you like some nice ISIS fighters? I can give them to you, Trump said with a slight smile at the meeting, which was carried live on cable news. You can take every one you want. Lets be serious, Macron replied sternly, reasoning that most ISIS fighters came from Syria, Iraq and Iran and disputing Trumps common refrain that the terrorist...

    RUSH: The media today was going wild over Trumps comments from the NATO summit in London where he called Macrons comments about NATO being brain-dead insulting. And of course Trump is the guy who has said that NATO is useless, thats its worthless without in the United States. It is Trump who has said that none of these other member nations are paying anywhere near their fair share of the operating expenses and the upkeep. Now, for those of you who dont know, there arent actually dues. NATOs not some club where theyve got a general secretary and an IT...

    LONDON President Trump sat down in a gilded chair beside President Emmanuel Macron of France on Tuesday, prepared for what has become a ritual of sorts on his home turf at the White House: He holds forth as another leader is left to smile stoically through his jokes, jabs and insults. But Mr. Macron changed the script. By the time their 45-minute appearance at the American ambassadors residence in London was over, the French leader had managed a rare role reversal, putting Mr. Trump on the defensive about his vision for NATO and his handling of a military conflict...

    French President Emmanuel Macron warned in a new interview that NATO is undergoing "brain death" due to a lack of commitment from its primary benefactor, the United States. In an interview published Thursday with The Economist, Macron warned that the Trump administration's decision to conduct unilateral military actions such as the withdrawal of troops from Syria indicated that nations in the alliance were less committed to upholding longstanding mutual defense agreements. "What we are currently experiencing is the brain death of NATO," Macron said. "I don't know [whether Article Five remains in effect]," Macron said, referring to the collective defense...

Erdoğan committed to visiting Trump at the White House following a phone call between the two leaders on Wednesday. Trump tweeted that the two discussed the situation in Syria, "the ending of hostilities with the Kurds" and the Turkish capture of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters. He added that he looked forward to welcoming Erdoğan to the White House. Erdoğan had been expected to make the trip, but...

    Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., said that President Trump's Wednesday announcement of a "permanent ceasefire" between Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is an "extraordinary breakthrough." Speaking at the White House, the president said that the conditions had been met by both sides and that the U.S. is lifting sanctions on Ankara that were implemented following the invasion of northern Syria. "I do believe it will be permanent," he said. "This was an outcome created by us, the United States, and nobody else...we've done something very, very special."

    President Trump announced on Wednesday that conditions have been met between Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for what he called a " permanent ceasefire" between the two sides and that the United States is lifting sanctions on Ankara that were implemented following the invasion of northern Syria. Speaking at the White House, Trump said that while a "permanent ceasefire" will be tough to maintain in the volatile region, he hopes that it will last and end the conflict between Turkey and the Kurds. "I do believe it will be permanent," he said. "This was an outcome created...

    President Trump claimed Wednesday that the purported ‘escape‘ of hundreds of ISIS terrorists from a prison in northern Syria was purposefully manufactured in order to draw US troops back into the conflict there.While speaking in front of the press at the White House, Trump described the withdrawal of troops from Syria as “strategically brilliant,” adding that as far as ISIS is concerned “you have a lot of countries over there that hate ISIS as much as we do…So they can take care of ISIS.”“We have them captured. The United States captured them,” Trump urged before making the claim about the...

    Mitch McConnell said Thursday that he wants 'something even stronger' in the Senate than the House's resolution formally opposing Donald Trump's troop withdrawal from northern Syria last week. The Senate Majority Leader said he was 'encouraged' by the House, including 129 Republican members, voting to condemn the president's highly contested decision. 'I believe it's important that we make a strong forward-looking strategic statement. For that reason my preference would be for something even stronger than the resolution that the House passed yesterday which has some serious weaknesses,' McConnell said from the Senate floor Thursday. The vote Wednesday where more...

    Trump pulling troops from Syria has been controversial at best, and many people on both the Left and the Right have been concerned, angry, outraged, you name it. There are some talking heads saying this move will be far more damaging to Trumps presidency than even the fake impeachment nonsense Democrats have been pushing for three years. Breitbarts John Hayward put together a pretty eye-opening thread on Trumps decision in Syria and its definitely worth a read.

    New Day co-hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota on Thursday took turns reading out loud a letter that President Trump recently sent to Turkish President Recep Erdogan. The letter contained blunt language in which Trump urged Erdogan not to be a "tough guy" or a "fool." Berman then turned to Jim Acosta, CNN's White House correspondent, and Trump antagonist extraordinaire, and sneeringly said: "We have this letter with this language that isn't exactly at Ph.D. level."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
