Former US Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tried to do her best to be amusing on Twitter this weekend, by posting a fake letter from President John F. Kennedy to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev dated 16 October 1962 in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Clinton shared the fake White House letter, dated October 16, 1962, to Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
Hillary Clinton is in on the joke. "Get your missiles out of Cuba", the fake letter read.
Wrote Trump: "Let's work out a good deal!" Everybody will say "Yay Khrushchev! Khrushchev! You're the best!' But if you don't everybody will be like 'what an a--' and call your garbage country 'The Soviet Bunion'". "Give you a jingle later".
Perhaps the soon-to-be Democratic frontrunner was trying to evoke nostalgia for that bygone era of American politics when USA presidents didn't write silly letters to foreign leaders, and instead engaged in more noble behaviors, like forcing their intern mistresses to service their White House staff members and counting on the national media to keep it quiet.
2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has tweeted a parody of President Trump's letter to the Turkish President.
Concluding the letter, Trump says, "Don't be a tough guy".
According to Fox News, the letter made its first appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show last week. "It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen".
The fake letter is written on official White House letterhead and is dated October 16, 1962. Erdogan told reporters he would respond to the letter "when the time comes".
