"There is a price we're paying for the period we're in", Erdogan said, referring to his country's plummeting currency.
"We will boycott USA electronic goods", Erdogan said in a televised speech, raising the stakes in a spat that has seen the Turkishlira plunge to record lows. But "thanks to God, our economy is functioning like clockwork", he maintained.
The Turkish lira has recently plummeted in value, falling to an all-time low of 7.24 to the dollar on Monday.

The business groups also urged diplomatic efforts with the United States and an improvement in relations with the European Union, which is Turkey's major trading partner. More than 30 percent of the lira's loss has come since June, when Erdogan took over the office with new sweeping powers. Erdogan's authoritarian hand has distanced the country from traditional Western allies and hit confidence. It also indicated it would lend money at interest rates above prevailing market rates, an effective tightening of monetary policy.
