Mnuchin said, “We have placed financial institutions on notice that they should be cautious and that there could be sanctions.” 
He added, “These are very powerful sanctions. We hope we don’t have to use them, but we can shut down the Turkish economy if we need to.”
The diplomatic fight between Turkey and the US began when Turkey pressed ahead its military operation against Kurdish fighters in northeast Syria.
