Trump's approval, before the visit, of plans to arm the YPG as it advances towards Islamic State's Raqqa stronghold had overshadowed talks between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but Erdogan did not directly criticize the plan at the White House.

The fracas erupted as Erdogan arrived at the ambassador's residence following a meeting with President Donald Trump. It is unclear if they worked for the embassy or were members of the counter-protest.

What happened next has been described by the DC Police Department's Chief as a "brutal attack" on peaceful protestors.

Video shown by Voice of America shows Erdogan in his vehicle outside the Turkish Embassy on Tuesday, talking to a member of his team who then heads to the protest (roughly 0:13 in the clip).

Close-up footage shared on social media showed Turkish officials dressed in suits beating and punching people in the crowd and, in at least one case, kicking out at a woman splayed on the ground.

He said there should be repercussions against Turkey for allowing such a violent put-down of a peaceful demonstration and called for the attackers to be identified and criminally charged.

Trump's White House 'surrounded by chaos'
However if the allegations are true, Democrats have said that Mr Trump could be guilty of obstruction of justice . Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".


The State Department condemned the attack as an assault on free speech, issuing a statement to express its concern regarding the violence outside the Turkish ambassador's residence.

On Wednesday, D.C. police announced that they will pursue additional charges against individuals who instigated the violence, dcist.com reported. "Someone was beating me in the head nonstop, and I thought, 'Okay, I'm on the ground already, what is the goal to beat me?"

U.S. Secret Service handcuffed and detained Turkish officials who punched and kicked the protesters - another angle is shown here, also by Voice of America's Turkish Service. "We did not convey it to the [Trump] administration in this way but we told them - without giving names - that those who keep their positions may affect our relationship", Çavuşoğlu said. "We would just take the step".

The US agrees with Turkey in designating the PKK as a terrorist organization, but rejects the idea that Kurdish forces in Syria or Iraq should be treated in the same fashion.

Speaking in Istanbul two days after meeting President Donald Trump in Washington, Erdogan criticized the USA decision to ally with "terror organizations" for the long-awaited operation to capture Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State group.

The YPG's parent organisation the Democratic Union party (PYD) is a sister organisation to Turkey's banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
