Trump takes aim at Turkey after court rejects US pastor’s release appeal


>>PASTOR BRUNSON, THEY MADE UP THIS PHONY CHARGE THAT HE’ A SPY AND HE’S NOT A SPY. HE IS GOING THROUGH A TRIAL RIGHT NOW, IF YOU CALL IT A TRIAL. THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM BACK A LONG TIME AGO, AND TURKEY HAS, IN MY OPINION ACTED VERY, VERY BADLY. MELISSA: PRESIDENT TRUMP THREATENING MORE SANCTIONS ON TURKEY, SAYING THE U.S. WOULD NOT TOLERATE MISTREATMENT OF PASTOR BRUNSON. RETIRED GENERAL JACK KEANE IS HERE TO TELL WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. GENERAL, STRIKINGS ME TURKEY IS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR ALLY AND THEY ARE A MEMBER OF NATO BUT SEEMS LIKE THEY HAVE GONE A LONG WAY FROM THERE. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS.>>THEY SIT AT THE CONFLUENCE OF EUROPE AND THE MIDDLE EAST. NATO. THEY HAVE THE SECOND LARGEST ARMY BY FAR, MUCH LARGER THAN ANY OTHER EUROPEAN ARMY, MILITARY, NOT JUST ARMY. THE UNITED STATES OBVIOUSLY HAS THE LARGEST. BUT YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, YEARS THIS, STRAINED RELATIONSHIP. WHEN THE COUP TOOK PLACE AGAINST ERDOGAN IN 2016, HE WAS REALLY FRUSTRATED THAT THE UNITED STATES AND NOT A SINGLE NATO NATION CAME OUT TO SUPPORT HIM. TO PROVIDE MORAL SUPPORT FOR HIM AS HE WAS GOING THROUGH THAT. IT IS BECAUSE HE HAS BECOME AN AUTHORITARIAN LEADER, HE HAS TAKEN AWAY DEMOCRATIC VALUES APPRECIATE THAT THE THEY’RE MOVING IT. RELATIONS WITH TURKEY ARE AT AN ALL-TIME LOW. MELISSA: WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN FROM HERE? YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THE WAY YOU DESCRIBE IT, IT DOES SOUND LIKE, SO IT IS NATO, WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DEFENDING EACH OTHER. AT THE SAME TIME HE HAS TAKEN A BIG SHIFT. I DON’T KNOW, WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?>>I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS DOING THE RIGHT THING. THERE IS A TUG-OF-WAR HERE FOR SURE. THEY PUT A UNITED STATES CITIZEN WHO IS RESIDING IN TURKEY IN THEIR JAILHOUSE, PASTOR BRUNSON, BECAUSE WE HAVE A TURKISH INSPIRATIONAL LEADER OF THE COUP. FELLOW BY THE NAME OF GOULAN HE WANTS HIM BACK. WE’RE NOT GIVING HIM BACK BECAUSE WE HAVE NO EVIDENCE TO THE CLAIM THAT HE WAS A PARTICIPANT IN THAT COUP. THAT IS WHERE THIS TUG-OF-WAR WILL HAPPEN HERE, BECAUSE, ERDOGAN’S ECONOMY IS SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL. THEY HAVE MAJOR, MAJOR PROBLEMS. IF WE INCREASE TARIFFS AS WE’RE EXACERBATE THE SITUATION. I’M CONFIDENT THE PRESIDENT WILL THROTTLE BACK ON ALL OF THAT TO GET PASTOR BRUNSON OUT OF THERE, EVEN AFTER PASTOR BRUNSON COMES HOME, HE WILL COME HOME THIS, RELATIONSHIP WILL STILL BE STRAINED.>>SHIFTING GEARS BEFORE WE RUN OUT OF TIME, I WANT TO ASK YOU THAT THE PENTAGON IS REPORTING TO CONGRESS THAT THE CHINA IS LIKELY TRAINING PILOTS FOR STRIKES AGAINST THE U.S. AND ITS ALLIES IN THE PACIFIC. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS DEVELOPMENT IN GENERAL?>>WELL THE UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED THE AT END OF THE DECEMBER OF HIS FIRST YEAR, THE NATIONAL DEFENSE STRATEGY, BOTH IDENTIFY CHINA AS THE LONG-TERM STRATEGIC THREAT TO U.S. NATIONAL INTERESTS. CHINA’S GOALS, THEY ARE, THEY INCLUDE THE UNITED STATES IN THE WORLD TODAY. THEY WANT TO DOMINATE AND CONTROL THE ASIA-PACIFIC. AND THEY’RE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO DOING IT TO BE FRANK ABOUT IT, MELISSA. MELISSA: YEAH.>>SECONDLY THEY WANT TO REPLACE THE UNITED STATES AS PREEMINENT GLOBAL POWER IN THE WORLD TODAY. SO THEY ARE INCREASING THEIR FIGHTERS, THEY’RE INCREASING THEIR BOMBERS. THEY’RE INCREASING THEIR OPENING UP PORTS AND BASES LIKE THEY ARE CLEARLY ON THE MOVE. THEIR ECONOMIC ENGINE THAT THEY HAVE, AND THE CAPITAL INVESTMENTS THAT THEY’RE MAKING, I JUST CAME BACK FROM SOUTHEAST ASIA. WHAT THOSE LEADERS THERE WERE TELLING ME IS THAT THE UNITED STATES IS BEHIND, WAY BEHIND CHINA TERMS OF THE CAPITAL YEARS AND THE UNITED STATES

  1. Oh ho, Islam provokes the West, but we know that the Nazis and the Communists have perished.
    Islam will play a role in the Third World War and its followers will feel their greatest pain.

  2. The poor Americans believe that their government fights terrorism, while it is the United States with their allies Saudi Arabia that have indoctrinated and trained all these fanatical fighters to fight against the Soviets. Later in Bosnia, Kosovo, Irak, Syria … Americans love terrorists … They make them do their dirty work … Poor Americans who know neither the world, nor its history …

  3. The U.S. should bomb Erdogan with stealth bombers until he gives us the American pastor back.
    Erdogan supports terrorism and should be eliminated.
