Hillary Clinton on Sunday posted a parody letter on Twitter which supposedly sent by John F. Kennedy during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962, written in the style of US President Donald Trump’s letter to Turkey. The letter, which has been in the internet for some days on social media. It is written on mocked-up White House letter paper and it was addressed to Nikita Khrushchev, Russia’s then leader.
“Don’t be a dick, ok? Get your missiles out of Cuba,” the letter started with this.
“Everybody will say ‘Yay! Khrushchev! You’re the best!’ But if you don’t everybody will be like ‘what an asshole’ and call your garbage country ‘The Soviet Bunion’.” The letter added.

“You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy — and I will,” Trump wrote in a letter that many thought was fake until it was verified by the White House later.
“Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool,” Trump said, adding: “I will call you later.” The joke letter from Kennedy to Khrushchev ended with this: “You’re really busting my nuts here. Give you a jingle later” before concluded. “Hugs, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.” Clinton joked later, “found in the archives.”
In 1962 during Cuban missile crisis, Kennedy and Khrushchev faced off in a highly diplomatic siuationwhich threatened into nuclear war. The United States had decided Soviet missile installations in Cuba. This is near to the Florida coast, and Kennedy imposed a blockade of the island as well.
However, Soviet ships laden with nuclear missiles led to Cuba returned at the last minute after a secret agreement with Washington. Trump has defended his diplomacy in the Middle East at that time and also his military pullout from northern Syria, which eventually triggered Turkey’s cross-border attack against Kurdish military forces.
