US newspaper: Trump failed to isolate and subjugate Turkey
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump's efforts to isolate and subjugate Turkey have failed, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday, as Ankara has yet to release the captive US priest, Andrew Brunson, despite US sanctions and public threats.
A report by the newspaper that Trump when he tried to pressure Turkey this month for the release of US pastor Andrew Branson, was betting that punitive economic measures and public reprimands would force the Turkish president to retreat quickly.
The newspaper pointed out that more than three weeks after the start of the crisis, "Rev. Bronson is still under house arrest, did not kneel Erdogan."
She said that while the Turkish lira had fallen sharply, Erdogan had angered the local public toward the United States and portrayed his country as a victim of deliberate sabotage, distracting attention from Turkey's economic problems.
Turkey had received timely support from outside allies, which undermined Trump's efforts to isolate Turkey. The visit included a visit by the Russian foreign minister to Ankara, a telephone conversation between Erdogan and French President Emmanuel Macaron, and Qatar pledged to invest $ 15 billion in the Turkish economy.
The newspaper pointed to the Turkish President, Erdogan, on Saturday, which was strongly critical of the White House, where he stressed that his country "will not give up to those who say that they are strategic partners and they turn them into a strategic goal."
"The US-Turkish conflict was costly to Turkey, but Erdogan's ability to take advantage of the crisis raises questions as to whether Trump underestimated the Turkish leader, who is clever in tactics, and deeply convinced that the forces," said Leslie Hintz, professor of international relations at Johns Hopkins University. The West is keen to block Turkey because of its status as a strong Islamic state. "
"Trump played for Erdogan, because the harsh measures taken by the United States, along with Trump's reckless tweets, seemed to aim to destroy Erdogan's efforts and Turkish officials to reassure the people and the markets," Hintz said. Trump played the role of destabilizing force for Turkey's stability.
"Erdogan's focus on external enemies when faced with internal challenges was part of his policy, but the difference this time is that there is strong evidence of aggressive intentions against Turkey," said Soly Ozil, a professor of international relations at Istanbul's Kadir Haas University. The cruel aim is to cut the back of Turkey.
Ozil added that the impact of US sanctions is to assure many Turks that what is happening is not just an economic crisis, but an economic war waged by the United States against their country.
On Turkey's recent moves toward rapprochement with European leaders, Ozil said these moves did not necessarily mean warmer relations with the EU, but more concerned with sending a message to the United States.
