BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – A Turkish businesswoman fired back against the U.S. over their recent sanctions by hanging a large poster of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over Trump Towers this week.

The large banner was placed near the top of the Trump Towers building in the large city of Istanbul in the northern part of the country.

This response by the unnamed businesswoman comes just days after the U.S. announced that they were sanctioning some Turkish officials over the detention of the American pastor Andrew Brunson.

Brunson, who had been living in Turkey for years, was detained by the Turkish authorities for allegedly supporting the 2016 coup against Erdogan.

Recently, the American pastor was moved from a prison to his home, where he will remain under house arrest until his case is settled.

Nationalist Turks are pathetically immature, like uneducated children.

Patriotism is loving your country, nationalism is hating all others.
Nationalists have always been as retarded as sectarianists.
ErdoGollum is both, so he’s double retard.
Note that Turkish economy is on the brink to melting down…
It’s even why this creep advance elections : there are realy grim times to come : even if there was 7%+ growth, having taken huge loans with 17.75% interest rates was suicidal!
If the Yanks want to sink Turkish economy, they’ll just have to push the 1st domino… In fact, they may not even need to push it : investors are already fleeing while the Turkish Lira is collapsing.

Turkey is not the only developing country struggling because of financial market problems. But crucial Turkish firms owe money in foreign currencies. This can break the Turkish growth.

Well, this large banner, once cutted, will provide toilet paper for the tower for many years to come 😉

President Erdogan: “We expect that our joint efforts with the United States on Manbij will continue unaffected by other problems between us”
=> Well, since Yanks gave the greenlight to SDF to help SAA at cleansing Idlib, Afrin, etc from terrorists/Turkish proxies, for sure (irony) joint efforts in Manbij will be unaffected 😉
