I do know that Recep Erdoğan rigged his election to end democracy.

Hey Steven, do you think, for this reason Trump likes this man?

I think President Trump is not a nation builder.

Agreed... He is for the Trump brand. What do you expect from a businessman?

TRUMP is defriending a person that is in the middle of destroying democracy in his country to Win, win, win. Do you want that to happen here in this country?

I see no evidence of "befriending".

I saw your video Ron. Piss poor reporting as usual.

According to accounts by both Trump and Erdogan, the two also discussed the U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base in response to the April 4 chemical weapons attack on civilians in Idlib province. Trump thanked Erdogan for Turkey’s support of the retaliatory action. The leaders agreed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should be held accountable for the chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, and they talked about the ongoing campaign to counter the Islamic State.

OK! You saw this report, "GREAT!!!"

I did not ask you a thing about what you thought about your rating of this report.

The question is STEVEN for the second time is: Why is Trump propping up an autocrat, this autocrat?


Friday, April 21st 2017 at 10:29AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Trump is not "propping up" an "autocrat". Rephrase your question so that it doesn't require me to accept your premise, and I may be able to answer it.

And if you were honest Ron, you'd let your viewers know that all Chris Hayes was doing was whining AGAIN about the Trump business holdings.
Friday, April 21st 2017 at 11:50AM
Steve Williams
I don't have to rephrase a thing STEVEN, Why would Trump place a call to the Turkish leader to congratulate this autocrat winning a heavily disputed referendum that would greatly expand his powers and destroy the Democratic process in his own country?

The word autocrat came up in this report, do you know what an autocrat is?

Would you like this form of Government for this country? Win, win, win!

YOUR WORDS: And if you were honest Ron, you'd let your viewers know that all Chris Hayes was doing was whining AGAIN about the Trump business holdings.

Would you want our president to be beholden to a person or persons like this autocrat?

Not this Turkish autocrat.

An autocracy is a system of government in which supreme power is concentrated in the hands of one person, whose decisions are subject to neither external legal restraints nor regularized mechanisms of popular control (except perhaps for the implicit threat of a coup d'état or mass insurrection).[1] Absolute monarchy (such as Saudi Arabia) and dictatorship are the main historical forms of autocracy.

Do you want this form of government for The U.S.?

Why would Trump place a call to the Turkish leader to congratulate this autocrat winning a heavily disputed referendum that would greatly expand his powers and destroy the Democratic process in his own country?

The word autocrat came up in this report, do you know what an autocrat is? YOU LOOK UP THE WORD AUTOCRAT UP: An autocracy is a system of government in which supreme power is concentrated in the hands of one person, whose decisions are subject to neither external legal restraints nor regularized mechanisms of popular control (except perhaps for the implicit threat of a coup d'état or mass insurrection).[1] Absolute monarchy (such as Saudi Arabia) and dictatorship are the main historical forms of autocracy.

Now in your own words, what does this mean to you.

Would you like this form of Government for this country? Win, win, win!

YOUR WORDS: And if you were honest Ron, you'd let your viewers know that all Chris Hayes was doing was whining AGAIN about the Trump business holdings.

Would you want our president to be beholden to a person or persons like this autocrat?

I disagree he's an autocrat.

President Trump isn't beholden to any foreign power, autocrat or otherwise.
