Turkey's Erdogan, a Foreign Leader Most Respected and Admired by Obama, Says Hitler’s Presidential System Is Worth Emulating

(TheDC) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan believes the Third Reich presidency of Adolf Hitler is a good example of the kind of executive power he would like to have.

In an interview late Thursday with reporters, Erdogan was asked if it is possible his proposed plan to transform the president from a ceremonial office to the role of chief executive could work without disrupting Turkeys unitary political structure.

“There are already examples in the world. You can see it when you look at Hitler’s Germany,” the head of state replied, according to Reuters. “There are later examples in various other countries.”

Is it any wonder why just 2 days ago the German human rights chief said that Turkey does NOT belong in the European Union?
