John McCain Wants Turkish Ambassador Expelled Back to His 'Third World Country'

"The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense", the statement from the Turkish embassy said, adding "We hope that, in the future, appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that similar provocative actions causing harm and violence do not occur". Before it begins, a guard bends to speak to the Turkish president.

"McGurk is definitely giving clear support to the PKK and YPG", Cavusoglu was quoted as saying.

The State Department, Secret Service and Washington, D.C. police are trying to identify the assailants.

"We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America", said McCain on MSNBC's Morning Joe show, in response to video that appears to show the violence.

The meeting of the Turkish envoy and the USA official took place at the State Department on Wednesday, and comes amid an outcry among U.S. lawmakers.

The militia associated with the PYD, the People's Protection Units (YPG), are allies of the United States, while the Turkish government considers them a terrorist organization. We do not do this here. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior", he tweeted.

It took place just hours after Erdogan met with President Donald Trump at the White House. Videos show people pushing past police to confront a small group of protesters across the street.

Always Dreaming pulls away to win Kentucky Derby
He is also the first horse since 1933 to win the Kentucky Derby after not winning his first race until on or after January 25. Whether it was the sloppy track conditions or something else, the horse wanted no part in competing in the Kentucky Derby.

It remains unclear if Erdogan communicated with the assailants while he was sitting in the vehicle. Some of the men kicked victims while they were on the ground. Almost a dozen people were injured.

Violence erupted when Turkish security officials and counter-protesters clashed with demonstrators near the ambassador's residence, where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stayed after meetings with President Trump at the White House.

Another State Department official told Sputnik that the department was reviewing whether any individuals involved in the incidents were entitled to diplomatic immunity.

Roughly two dozen protesters had gathered outside of the embassy in a peaceful protest of the Turkish leader's policies on a range of issues such as his government's stance toward the Kurds and Armenians to his perceived assault on the country's democratic institutions.

Republicans are calling on the Trump administration to investigate whether criminal charges are warranted against any of the bodyguards.

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".

Nine people were hurt and two were arrested when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security personnel attacked protesters carrying the flag of a Kurdish political party while they rallied outside the Turkish envoy's residence on Wednesday.
