"Dear Premier Khrushchev," the mock letter "from the archives" during the Cuban Missile Crisis began, "Don't be a d--k, ok? Get your missiles out of Cuba. ... Give you a jingle later. Hugs."

In his Oct. 9 letter to Erdoğan, first obtained by the Fox Business Network's Trish Regan, Trump adopted a similarly familiar tone.

"Let's work out a good deal!" Trump began. "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. I've already given you a little sample with respect to Pastor Brunson." Brunson was held as a prisoner in Turkey for two years before the Trump administration secured his release.

Trump continued: "Don't let the world down. ... History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen. Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool. I will call you later."

Sources close to Erdoğan told the BBC Thursday that the Turkish strongman "thoroughly rejected" the letter. Erdoğan reportedly took the letter warning against being a "fool" and tossed it "in the bin," the sources said.

But, Clinton's jab itself inspired a slew of mockery -- including a post that highlighted Clinton's October 2016 tweet, featuring a photo of herself as a little girl with the caption: "Happy birthday to this future president."

"I would love to see a 'round two' between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because I think we all remember, Sean, not too long ago, all the media said that she was going to be the next president. We see Donald Trump in the White House now."

Clinton herself had sparked a wave of speculation about a possible run with a pointed Oct. 8 tweet.

"I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren," the president wrote. "Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting 'C' Subpoena!"
