Donald Trump says U.S. won’t extradite Muslim cleric to Turkey
Editor’s Note: Someone needs to inform President Trump that Fethullah Gulen is funding global Islamic terrorism through U.S. charter schools. Trump should either extradite Gulen or have him investigated more thoroughly & sent to Gitmo.
“It’s not under consideration,” Mr. Trump told reporters.
The Turkish government is seeking the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, a foe of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Mr. Erdogan accuses Mr. Gulen of masterminding a failed coup against him in 2016.
Mr. Gulen lives in Pennsylvania and is a permanent legal resident of the U.S. He denies Turkey’s accusations.
A news report surfaced earlier this week that the administration had examined options for extraditing Mr. Gulen.
“We’re having a very good moment with Turkey,” Mr. Trump told reporters. “I get along very, very well with the president, he’s a friend of mine. He’s a strong man, he’s a tough man, and he’s a smart man.”
