Win-Win For Turkey: Trump Pulls F-35 Sale From Turkey After Russian S-400 Missile Defense Purchase

July 16 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the United States will not sell Turkey any F-35 jets after the Middle Eastern country purchased a Russian missile defense system.

Speaking to reporters during a Cabinet meeting, Trump made good on his administration's threat not to sell the F-35 Lightning II jets to Turkey.

"It's a very tough situation that they're in. And it's a very tough situation that we've been placed in the United States," he said. "And we are now telling Turkey ... we're not going to sell you the F-35 fighter jets."

The decision came after Turkey decided to take delivery of nine S-400 Triumph surface-to-air missile defense systems from Russia last week. The system is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range ones. The S-400 system can hit targets at a distance of around 250 miles and at an altitude up to around 22 miles.

1. It would have been a HUGE mistake

in fact stupid to sell our top line fighter to a country that has enemy hardware that can learn to defeat it...
Not a win for Turkey at all!
They got a second rate missile system that can't defeat the F35.
And we still have flying hardware that can't be seen by the Russian shit.
