As Turkish currency hit a record low of around 7 to the US dollar, President Tayyip Erdogan hit back at Trump administration and said he expected attacks on Turkey’s economy to continue.

Erdogan told reporters in Ankara today: “You act on one side as a strategic partner, but on the other, you fire bullets into the foot of your strategic partner. We are together in Nato and then you seek to stab your strategic partner in the back.”

Last week, the US President had escalated a diplomatic feud by doubling tariffs on steel and aluminum on Turkey.
