Turkey: a partner in crisis, by Ömer Taşpinar Of all NATO allies, Turkey represents the most daunting challenge for the Trump administration. In the wake of a failed military coup in July 2016, the autocratic trend in Ankara took a turn for the worse. One year on, an overwhelming majority of the population considers the United States to be their country’s greatest security threat. In the context of a worsening “clash of civilizations,” even more important than Turkey’s geostrategic position is what it represents as the most institutionally westernized Muslim country in the world.
