Turkey won't leave NATO unless a better deal comes up. Of course that doesn't mean NATO isn't embarrassed by Turkish actions against the Kurds and in Syria, for example. 

I think they joined NATO because they were afraid of Russia and because they had, at that time, more in common with the western democracies. Now Turkey has much less in common with western democracies.

Trump has threatened to pull America from NATO.

He won't. He just uses it as a threat to make Germany and many other NATO members pull their weight.

I imagine Abraham Lincoln has been doing the same for the last 4 years.

More than that but now he's tired of the turning/spinning.
