BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – French President Emmanuel Macron went on the attack against his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday, as he claimed the latter’s country was working with the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist group.

“When I look at Turkey, they are fighting against those who fought with us, shoulder to shoulder, against ISIS. Sometimes they were with ISIS proxies,’’ Macron said, making reference to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who Ankara considers a terrorist group.

While Macron went on the attack, U.S. President Donald Trump pointed out that Turkey and America currently have “good relations”, despite Washington’s agitation over Ankara’s S-400 acquisition.

“We have a very good relations with Turkey and with President Erdoğan… I can’t speak for the president of France. We pulled our soldiers out, we said you can patrol your own borders now,’’ Trump said.

En lo único que le doy razón a Macrón, Espero que Rusia abra los ojos con la afirmación del presidente Francés?


Not only Russia. Time for many to fücking WAKE UP!


Ah, there are no Macron Towers in Turkey…
And frankly, the association between the Erdogan regime ans ISIS is an open secret!
The only reason that no leaders went public was the hope to keep Turkey in NATO, or not to lose the Trump Towers…
Macron just setted a cat amongst the pigeons
