Our priority is to have you turn over the money to the people.

Now I heard that somewhere what does it mean please explain.

    If you heard it, you need to work on your grasp of spoken English (unless your writing one-word turnover was just a typo). The pronunciation of the verb (to turn over the page) and noun (bake an apple turnover) forms are very different. In the cited context, hand over would probably be at least as likely (or maybe return, if that's more accurate). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Dec 4 '17 at 18:49

    Maybe it's just my opinion, but I feel that when you turn something over to someone else, it's more likely to be something they don't want and/or weren't expecting (such as some responsibility that you're ducking out of). But if you hand it over, it's more likely to be something they asked for (perhaps repeatedly, and you've finally yielded). Thus the mugger says Hand over the money!, not Turn over the money! – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Dec 4 '17 at 18:58
  • Sorry they weren't talking about money, they were talking about the iron man suit do you want me to paste the clip link here – fusion Dec 4 '17 at 19:00

    I've found the text here, where it's correctly transcribed (turn over is two words, effectively a phrasal verb roughly equivalent to hand over). If you have a link to Senator Stern actually speaking those words, I'm sure you'll agree it's two separate words. But yes please - edit your text to include a link. I don't see why you changed the thing demanded from the Iron Man weapon to the money anyway, to be honest. – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Dec 4 '17 at 19:08

It means that their priority is to make sure that he gives away his money to the people.
