‘The Tougher’ They Are, ‘The Better I Get Along With Them’

NEW YORK — Appearing on the Today show Monday, Bob Woodward shared new audio from a Jan. 22 conversation he had with President Donald Trump in which the president boasted about his relationship with Turkey’s autocratic leader Recip Tayyip Erdogan.

“I get along very well with Erdogan,” Trump told Woodward. “Even though you’re not supposed to, because everyone says ‘What a horrible guy.’ But for me it works out good. I can tell you that the relationships I have, the tougher and meaner they are, the better I get along with them. You’ll explain that to me some day, OK? But maybe it’s not a bad thing. The easy ones are the ones I maybe don’t like as much, or don’t get along with as much.”

Woodward noted the shocking nature of Trump admitting to aligning himself with leaders such as Turkey’s president, while simultaneously having tense relationships with longtime allies.

“He is the face of the United States to the world,” Woodward said. “And he has said — and there it is — ‘Hey, look. I get along with these bad guys, but not the good guys.’”

  1. Dear President Trump:

    Erdogan is not “tough.”

    He’s psychotic.

    There’s a difference.

    Try not to be like Erdogan in that regard.

    And try not to give in to him.

    It makes you look like a fool.

    You’re an American, after all, not a Turk, just in case you haven’t realized that yet.

  2. Erdogan is a terrorist, and the de facto caliph of the Islamic State (ISIS). He is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and several million refugees. He deserves nothing short of execution.
