Pence says Trump spoke to Erdogan and asked for immediate ceasefire
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] US President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
on Monday urged his Ottoman Turkish counterpart His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
to "stop the invasion" of Syria, Vice President Mike Pence said.

Trump pressed the Ottoman Turkish leader in a telephone call to "stop the invasion, to enact an immediate ceasefire and to begin negotiations with Kurdish forces in Syria," Pence told news hounds, adding that he would be traveling urgently to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
at the president’s request.

"He’s directed me to lead a delegation. I will be leaving as quickly as possible to travel into the region to pursue a ceasefire and negotiated settlement," Pence said.

"The United States of America did not give a green light for Turkey to invade Syria," Pence said to news hounds in front of the White House.

Pence said Trump had been firm with Erdogan on the phone.

"The United States of America simply is not going to tolerate Turkey’s invasion in Syria any further. We are calling on Turkey to stand down, end the violence and come to the negotiating table," Pence told news hounds.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who joined Pence, said the Treasury Department was taking economic action against Ottoman Turkish ministries and senior Ottoman Turkish government officials in response to the country’s military operations in Syria.
