This article predicts a new low in Turko-American relations if the upcoming summit between Messrs Trump and Erdogan were to fail, and offers Trump policy suggestions to ease Erdogan’s concerns regarding Syrian Kurds. It makes sense, but the policy advice involves strong commitment form White House to Syria and substantive course change from Erdogan on the Kurdish issue which may cost him votes in the 2019 election cycle.
