Erdogan watched attack on protesters in DC

State Department official Heather Nauert said in a statement the USA concerns would be communicated to the Turkish government "in the strongest possible" way.

To Turkey's dismay, President Donald Trump has chose to arm and partner Syrian Kurdish militants in the impending fight to retake the key city of Raqqa. -Turkish tensions compounded by a spat over US war strategy against the Islamic State group in Syria.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is pleading for the replacement of Brett McGurk, the United States presidential envoy for the US-led coalition against IS.

"Brett McGurk, the USA's special envoy in the fight against Daesh (Islamic State), is definitely and clearly giving support to the PKK and YPG. It would be beneficial for this person to change", he said, accusing the diplomat of carrying on Obama-administration policies.

The US has summoned the Turkish ambassador after violence erupted between protesters and Turkish security personnel in Washington on Tuesday. During an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" talk show, McCain said that "we should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America". "This kind of thing can not go un-responded to diplomatically", Senator John McCain told MSNBC's Morning Joe programme on Thursday.

On Wednesday, McCain condemned Turkish authorities, stating that there is "no excuse" for their "thuggish" behavior.

In this regard, he said that the United States of America is not like Turkey, and this kind of violent will never be tolerated.

Erdogan made the comments Thursday while addressing Turkish businessmen in Istanbul after returning to Turkey from a Tuesday visit to the White House.

Videos of the incident show people fighting in Washington D.C.'s Sheridan Circle.

A video shows the Turkish President standing near his auto as the fighting ensued, before turning his back and walking into the embassy.

Eleven people were injured, including a police officer, and nine were taken to a hospital, after men in suits brutally kicked and punched the protestors.

According to the International Crisis Group, at least 2,798 people, including state security personnel and Kurdish militants, have been killed in Turkey. But the guards quickly claimed diplomatic immunity, and were released after diplomatic security consulted with counsel. Later it was reported that Recep Tayyip Erdogan's security detail were the attackers of the peaceful protest.

The protesters "began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the President", the embassy said in a statement released late Wednesday.

"The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense", the statement read. Even as officials vowed an investigation, the guards were already safely back in Turkey with Erdogan, dampening any prospects for holding them accountable.

A video emerged Thursday of Erdogan watching members of his security detail violently clash with protesters in D.C.
