Erdogan Supporters in Violent Clash with Protesters in Washington

Turkey's President Erdogan delivers a statement to reporters alongside Trump after their meeting at the White House in Washington

And that's what we saw playing out later that day near the Turkish embassy grounds, when otherwise peaceful protesters were set upon by Turkish government thugs. He spoke by phone on Wednesday night after he was released pending a June court hearing.

Turkey has forcefully protested the Trump administration's decision to arm a Syrian Kurdish force for an assault on the Islamic State-held city of Raqqa. He said police were examining video to identify those responsible.

The Associated Press says they spoke with a congressional aide, who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity to discuss the situation. Ayten Necmi, 49, of Woodside, New York, was charged with aggravated assault, and Jalal Kheirabaoi, 42, of Fairfax, Virginia, was charged with assault on a police officer.

News reported on Wednesday that the men who attacked the protesters were bodyguards of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. She said she escaped when a stranger let her into his vehicle.

The video emerged after US President Donald Trump had welcomed Erdogan to the White House and praised him as an ally in the battle against Islamic extremism in the middle-east.

"We should throw the Turkish ambassador out of the country, we should identify those people that performed these unlawful acts of beating people up and they should be charged", Senator John McCain said on national television on Thursday morning. "We hope that, in the future, appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that similar provocative actions causing harm and violence do not occur".

The PKK is considered a terror group by the US and Turkey's Western allies.

Tens of thousands of Turks have been detained as Erdogan cracked down on the press and academia following an attempted coup in 2016. "The United States recognizes this inviolability, which provides reciprocal protection for the United States overseas".

State Department official Heather Nauert said in a statement the us concerns would be communicated to the Turkish government "in the strongest possible" way. "It would be beneficial for this person to change", Cavusoglu said, referring to McGurk, adding that Turkey "would not meddle in the domestic issues of another country".

The comment comes as top congressional Republicans are demanding the Trump administration take swift action against the Turkish government after the president's security detail violently broke up a protest earlier in the week outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington. They were assaulting these people on U.S. soil.
