Erdogan watched his bodyguards beat up protesters in Washington

Erdogan watched his bodyguards beat up protesters in Washington

Erdogan on Tuesday met Trump at the White House and the two leaders promised to strengthen strained ties between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies despite the Turkish leader's stern warning about Washington's arming of a Kurdish militia. He also said that these individuals needed to be identified and charged since they violated American laws on USA soil.

"Today's experience has shown us that as Kurds we are not even safe from Turkey's racism and terrorism here in the United States", she wrote.

Videos captured of bodyguards of the president of Turkey punching and kicking American protesters on our soil has incensed many, but a new video has surfaced showing what the president himself was doing as the pandemonium unfolded.

Police barricaded the perimeter to separate the groups.

At one point, Turkish Ambassador to Washington Serdar Kilic appears and shouts at one of the police officers. Video of the melee showed suited men believed to be working for Erdogan attacking protesters in the street outside of the residence.

"While the President has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the President has never asked Mr. Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", the White House said in a statement. "Somebody told them to go out there and beat up on these peaceful demonstrators and I think it should have repercussions", McCain explained.

Washington and Ankara are at odds over USA plans to support the YPG, a Syrian Kurdish militia battling IS militants.

Military officials say the group's fighters are among the best in Syria, and are critical in the fight to retake the Islamic State capital city of Raqqa.

According to the International Crisis Group, at least 2,798 people, including state security personnel and Kurdish militants, have been killed in Turkey.

President Donald Trump walks Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to his auto following his visit to the White House in Washington, Tuesday, May 16, 2017. This is Erdogan's security detail.

The embassy alleged, without evidence, that the demonstrators were associated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which has waged a three-decade-long insurgency against Turkey and is considered a terrorist group by the United States. It also fueled the perception that the USA allows Turkey's leader to bring strongman tactics with him when he visits the US capital.

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