Interesting ?? Trump is listed as the owner or partial owner of over 100 businesses in Turkey. That, of course, would have NO BEARING on his decisions on Turkey and the Kurds .................. RIGHT ??

AND WHOOP! There it is. Now we know. Grab your car keys cuz we're riding down memory lane to 2015.
Here's our Lord and Savior:
In 2015, while running for president, Trump gave an interview to Stephen Bannon, not yet his campaign manager, in which he talked about Turkey. Right away, he admitted that his business interests in the country would make it difficult for him to deal with Turkey with a clear mind.
“I have a little conflict of interest ’cause I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” Trump told Bannon during a Breitbart radio show. “It’s a tremendously successful job. It’s called Trump Towers—two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it’s two.”
Those Trump Towers are a pair of glass buildings in Istanbul that have borne Trump’s name since 2012. Trump doesn’t own the buildings—the situation might be less complicated if he did. Instead, Trump licenses his brand to the building’s actual owner, Turkish business magnate Aydin Dogan, who has been described as the single largest payer of taxes in Turkey. He’s a one-time antagonist of Erdogan who is now in step with the strongman.
When he ran for office, Trump said he would handle conflicts of interest like this by turning over his businesses to his children. He didn’t. Instead, he simply stepped away from the daily operations of his business empire, but he retains full ownership of almost all of the assets, including the licensing company that collects royalties from Dogan.

What is really laughable, but predictable, is the "outrage" Turkey has expressed over the Kurds killing Turkish civilians after responding to the bombings by Turkey.

How long do you think it will be before trump "destroys" Turkeys economy for ignoring his warnings?
Boy howdy--Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has GOT TRUMP'S number and he's going to keep ringing his bell. Meanwhile, back at the golf course Trump's his usual bluster and blab....so scary....cuz he's going to "totally destroy and obliterate"....yadda yadda.
Does anyone really buy that load of bull?

Considering his two towers, and his other businesses there, I would think he would probably sell tickets to the right wingers so they could watch the slaughter. Maybe he could build a wall around the area, and call it an arena.
