U.S. support for Kurdish rebel groups fighting Islamic State fighters in northern Syria is another major difficulty, given Turkey's battle against a Kurdish insurgency in its own country.

"They made up this phoney charge that he's a spy", Trump said.

A higher court in Izmir upheld a lower-court decision that rejected the lifting of Brunson's house arrest, according to the state-run Anadolu agency and the newspaper HaberTurk. It's not clear how much more they'd be willing to contribute if the USA just keeps making things worse.

"I think that Turkey is so integrated into the global economic system that it has realized it can not afford to have bad ties with both the United States and Europe", Soner Cagaptay, Director of the Turkish Research Program at The Washington Institute, explained to The Media Line. Those sanctions caused great turmoil in financial markets, and contributed to the huge slump seen by the Turkish lira in the last two weeks.

The Trump administration said it would use a section of USA law that allows for tariffs on national security grounds to impose the increased duties.

Police say she drove to the bridge on Thursday but right now they have more questions than answers about this crime. A member of the Tampa police dive team found the girl's unconscious body about 75 feet from shore.

"They should have given him back a long time ago, and Turkey has in my opinion acted very, very badly", Trump told reporters at the White House, referring to Brunson.

The U.S. doubled its tariffs on metal imports from Turkey earlier this month.

Turkey has since imposed retaliatory tariffs on the U.S.

USA stocks suffered their worst day in seven weeks after the move, and the lira gained 7 percent against the dollar.

Officials reportedly know Brunson's release is the first step to alleviating the diplomatic and economic crises sparked between the two countries, but are aiming for further negotiation with the US.

He later tweeted: "Turkey has taken advantage of the United States for many years".

Erdogan has moved to shore up alliances in Europe and the Middle East, easing pressure on the battered lira, as the standoff with the USA has deepened.

Wall Street stocks had risen strongly on Thursday following news of the resumption of trade talks between the United States and China but some analysts suggested on Friday that the rally was exaggerated.

"There was considerable risk aversion through the early part of the week with fears of Turkish contagion weighing on risk assets and that seems to have reversed somewhat here", said Karl Schamotta, a strategist at Cambridge Global Payments in Toronto.
