Trump and Erdogan: Soul Brothers … and the future of America

 Turkey’s economic crisis is a glimpse into the future of Trump’s America

Turkey’s situation is what happens when you undermine independent institutions, trample over norms of good governance, ignore expert advice and give free rein to nepotism

Erdogan proclaims that phrases such as “democracy, freedom and rule of law” have “absolutely no value any longer”. Trump describes the media as the “enemy of the people” and attacks judicial decisions with which he disagrees. Erdogan has appointed his son-in-law, Berat Albayrak, as finance minister. Trump’s 37-year-old son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is his “senior advisor”.

Erdogan believes, despite all the evidence in the world, that low interest rates curb inflation, rather than stoking it. Donald Trump thinks, contrary to the view of every credible economist, that the US trade deficit can be eliminated by tariff hikes and trade wars, and that a current account surplus represents some kind of a national economic victory.

Erdogan says the United Nations has “collapsed” and describes the Dutch as “Nazi remnants”.

Trump labels the World Trade Organisation a “disaster” and talks of “shithole countries” in Africa.

Erdogan describes high interest rates as “the mother and father of all evil” and pledges to “take responsibility” for such issues.

Trump says he’s “not happy” about the Federal Reserve putting up the cost of borrowing.

  1. Wait and see what is Allah’s plan to both leaders. One is conservative Muslim and other is conservative Christian.

    Allah is the Most knowing every things, without Allah’s will cannot happen. Trust on God alone sincerly and truthfully.
    All love ❤️
