Turkey's Erdogan threw Trump's 'don't be a fool' letter in the trash and considered it 'the final straw' before launching his offensive in Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan trashed a letter from Donald Trump which urged him not to 'be a fool' over Syria, it was revealed today.

Turkish officials told the BBC that the letter was 'thoroughly rejected' by Erdogan last week, who promptly placed it in the trash and considered it 'the final straw'.

In Trump's October 9 letter, written as Erdogan's forces prepared to cross into Syria, the president wrote: 'History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen ... Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!'
