Putin and Erdogan are alike uninteresting

HI, Tovey.

In my book, Mahmud Abbas is nothing but a vicious murderer, who should never have been allowed into Israel. He lived most of his life in Egypt, from where he funded the Munich Massacre. Concerning Russia (where Abbas wrote his thesis denying the Holocaust), you said,

"Russia is not going to entertain western influences messing with their own ambitions of aligning with Turkey. Erdoǧan and Putin have already had that discussion and apparent agreement. What could/would the American Administrative Chief Executive truly offer to counter that?"

Putin and Erdogan are both dictators of corrupt Oligarchies. What they say seldom jibes with truth; and they both conduct policies according to their personal whims. I find them both uninteresting.

The GOP convention is on. Gottago...
