Despite Erdogan's Claims, WH Says Trump Has No Plans to Visit Turkey

Despite Erdogan's Claims, WH Says Trump Has No Plans to Visit Turkey

For more than a month, there have been reports emerging from Turkey that President Donald Trump will visit there over the summer and meet with its President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Quoting an unnamed “Turkish official,” the Middle East Eye reported in May that “Trump will visit Turkey later this year” and that ” [d]etails of the visit were agreed in a call on Tuesday between Ibrahim Kalin, a senior aide to [Erdogan], and U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton.”

But as of last week, White House sources told Newsmax there was “nothing firm at this time.” 

The comment from our sources differs little from that of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders last month.  At that time, she told Newsmax there were no plans for Trump and Erdogan to meet but emphasized “the President and Erdogan have had a good relationship.”

The latest questions about a Trump-Erdogan summit come amid reports that Turkey will soon start receiving S-400 missiles from Russia. The U.S. has long opposed the deal because it fears this would permit Russia to obtain critical data about the next generation of F-35 fighter aircraft Turkey is already obtaining from the U.S.
