Hollywood’s Lindsay Lohan asks Trump to join her in Turkey and Syria
ISTANBULLinday Lohan, a Hollywood star known for her colorful lifestyle, asked U.S. President-elect Donald Trump over Twitter on Nov. 13 to join her in Turkey.
“Please, let me help you. #worldisbiggerthanfive come to Istanbul and Syria with me. You can see it first hand,” she stated via Twitter.
A spokesman for Lohan said she had an eye-opening experience while recently in Turkey and wanted to show the whole world what is really happening in the country.
Lohan visited Syrian refugees in the Sultanbeyli district of Istanbul on Sept. 26, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.
Lohan gave presents to Syrian children during her visit to a house, bursting into tears after she saw the refugees’ situation.
The actress also took to social media to express her feelings about the visit before leaving the country.
The actress has started to share pictures of herself at a refugee camp in Turkey with the hashtag “the world is bigger than five,” a motto frequently used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in reference to the U.N. Security Council’s permanent members.
In addition, Lohan visited a refugee camp in the Nizip district of the southeastern province of Gaziantep. Lohan met with Syrian refugees during her visit and shared a photo over Instagram of herself and an aid personnel working in the camp.
“I met a wonderful aid worker (Azize) at The Refugee Camp in Antep,” Lohan wrote on Oct. 8.
“She saw that my eyes lit up when I told her that her headscarf is beautiful. She waved to me and said, come with me, I followed her and she gifted it to me. I was so moved and touched by this that I wanted to wear it in appreciation for all of the generosity and love I received from everyone at the camp,” she said.
