My wife is from there, and it is indeed really bad. Her parents have talked about moving to the US, but mostly as an emergency if things become intolerable. But they sent my sister-in-law to school in NY because they don't think she should stay either. My mother-in-law was staying with us when Trump was elected, and her cynical response was "Well, now you know what we've been going through."
I don't think Europe was ever serious about EU membership, even last year, and Erdoğan mostly used the talks as an excuse to dismantle the secular army that opposed him. I don't see things changing for the better anytime soon, the main opposition party is old and inept. There was a glimmer of hope when his party lost elections a couple of years ago, but then he never formed a government and restarted a war with the Kurds to inflame everyone's nationalist tendencies, and it worked, snap elections brought them back to power. People are so gullible.
