McCain: Turkish ambassador should get 'the hell out'

McCain: Turkish ambassador should get 'the hell out'

The unseemly incident added to U.S.

There were Turkish, Armenian, Democratic Union Party of Syria (PYD) and United States flags visible at the event.

Initial video only showed the bodyguards charging the protesters and the bloody aftermath. It was unclear if they were members of Mr Erdogan's security.

The Senators called the behavior "wholly unacceptable and, unfortunately, reflective of your government's treatment of the press, ethnic minority groups and political opponents".

Sayid Reza Yasa, a US citizen who helped organize the demonstration, said he lost a tooth in the scuffle after he was beat up and knocked to the ground.

The aide, identified as Yusuf Yerkel by Turkish media and CNN Turk, reportedly said he was deeply saddened by the events.

Liverpool star set for summer exit as Klopp seeks replacement
Liverpool's final game of the season at home to Middlesbrough on Sunday is key to Klopp's summer transfer plans. Liverpool need an experienced left-back, not a kid who is still growing and physically developing.

"There must be consequences", Rep. Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, said Thursday.

He went on to call for a diplomatic response from the United States and said the government should press charges against Turkish officials involved in the brawl. Senator John McCain, a Republican, urged the Trump administration to expel the Turkish ambassador over the incident.

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

The fight ultimately left 12 people injured and led to two arrests.

Turkey is frequently ranked as the world's top jailer of journalists, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. He then "exited the vehicle and looked directly toward the melee feet away".

The Turkish Embassy released a statement claiming the protestors were "aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president", and thus caused Erdogan's supporters to respond in self-defense.

Celtics notebook: Isaiah Thomas not hip to latest injury
LeBron James scored 30 points and dished out 7 assists, Kyrie Irving had 23 points, and Kevin Love had 21 points and 12 rebounds. On Thursday, the All-NBA teams were announced, and amazingly only 99 of the 100 voters had James on the first team.

"This is the United States of America, this isn't Turkey, this isn't a third-world country, and this kind of thing can not go un-responded to diplomatically and maybe in other ways", McCain added.

While President Trump's invitation to Erdogan - and his lavish praise for Turkey during the visit - were widely seen as having enhanced Erdogan's stature at home, the administration did not appear to budge on any of Erdogan's most pressing requests, including the demand not to arm the YPG.

Hell, Trump probably wishes he had a security force that would do stuff like this.

Erdogan referred to the protests as he addressed the audience inside: "They are shouting, but they don't know what's going on back in Turkey".

In its protest against Trump's decision, Turkey's foreign minister demanded Thursday that Trump dismiss the US envoy in charge of the anti-IS coalition, Brett McGurk.
