PRESIDENT TRUMP laid out the welcome mat this week for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the strongman apparently felt so much at home he thought it okay for his thugs to beat up peaceful demonstrators.

Hawkish Republican Senator John McCain demanded the Turkish ambassador's expulsion after Mr Erdogan's bodyguards attacked pro-PYD demonstrators outside the embassy residence on Tuesday afternoon.

Police called the violence a "brutal attack on peaceful protesters". Another wrenches a woman's neck and throws her to the ground. A man with a bullhorn is repeatedly kicked in the face. Video shows people pushing past police to confront a small group of protesters across the street in Sheridan Circle.

"Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest", State spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

Politicians weighed in as well.

"We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America", McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". "We do not do this here", Sen. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior", McCain initially tweeted after the incident.

Sen. Patrick Leahy's tweet said "We've got to come back to American values".

"We have every intention to pursue charges against the other individuals involved", read a DC Metro Police statement.

The Turkish Embassy said Wednesday night, though, that the demonstration was "unpermitted and provocative".

The security detail, he continued, violated American laws on United States ground, and that can not happen.

Police Chief Peter Newsham said on Wednesday the violence was "not something we tolerate in our city".

The background of the two men arrested wasn't immediately clear. A bodyguard was standing next to the car's open door and was updating the president on the situation, and Erdogan in turn was giving orders.

"We are concerned by the violent incidents involving protestors and Turkish security personnel Tuesday evening".

"This is what happens in Turkey - this is not what happens in the US", he told the paper.

Turkey considers the People's Protection Units, or YPG, in Syria a terror organisation and an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged a three- decade-long insurgency against the Turkish state.

Cavusoglu said Turkey received USA assurances that arms sent to the YPG would only be used against IS and not against Turkey, with a promise to support Turkey's fight against the PKK.

Earlier in the day, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the Trump administration understood Turkey's position against the YPG.

Erdogan responded that there is there is no place for any Kurdish "terrorist organizations" in any agreement about the region's future.
