Now Clinton has taken to Twitter to mock a letter that Trump sent to Turkish president Erdogan. Trump’s 16 October letter to the Turkish premier – which called on Erdogan not to “be a tough guy” or a “fool” – was seen as so strange that the White House was forced to confirm its legitimacy after US outlets presumed the letter was a hoax.
