Donald Trump’s style of correspondence in his letter to President Tayyip Erdoğan has generally been seen as disrespectful, not only in Turkey but in the USA too, where the letter baffled many when it was released.
Because Americans enjoy the freedom to mock at their president, content of Trump’s letter has become an object of derision in comedy shows on televisions. Things have reached a pretty pass that prime-time newscasters have finished some of their programs with the last sentence of the letter bursting into laughter.
It is a bizarre letter indeed. . .
How could a president dare to use such a style of correspondence in a letter to another president?
I’ve been thinking over this question for days.
Some people in our country are angry because Trump’s letter wasn’t retaliated with the same tone. They think that Trump should have been given a dose of his own medicine, instead of being content with saying in public that the letter had been ‘tossed straight into the bin’.
