Is Trump applying all of these tariffs to other countries when they are at a point of weakness to emphasize American businesses/products within the US and ultimately leveraging better import/export deals for the US?

Turkey is unique - they have become a rogue NATO ally that has American hostages, and signed a deal with Russia for their missile defense system.

The US congress has been threatening to withhold the F35 fighter from delivery to Turkey and impose sanctions if they do not release Pastor Brunson. The tariffs were simply expediting the issues since Brunson was not released last week.

Erderon loaded their legislature with his croonies last year and they approved a new Constitution. Since there was a "new" constitution, then he could run for office again and extend his term which was up under the old constitution.

This guy is a pretty bad guy.
