Corker on Turkey: ‘Concerning’ a NATO Ally Is Moving More Towards Authoritarianism
CORKER: "You think about Turkey ten years ago. What a model, what a model for the Muslim world as far as how they were. And over the last ten years under Erdogan’s leadership it’s going in a very negative direction. To me it’s certainly not something to applaud. It is concerning that we have a NATO ally that is moving towards a lesser democracy within its own country. And it’s not — in my opinion, it’s not something to congratulate him on."
