PRESIDENT TRUMP laid out the welcome mat this week for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the strongman apparently felt so much at home he thought it okay for his thugs to beat up peaceful demonstrators.

"Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest", the statement read.

A firebrand United States senator has advocated for Turkey's Ambassador Serdar Kilic's removal of diplomatic credentials after what he called "thuggish" clashes in front of the Turkish embassy in the USA capital.

The US respects Turkish concerns about its "by, with, and through" approach to the Syrian Democratic Forces led by the YPG, and will continue consulting with ankara as the focus on combating IS continues, Nauert said. The Turkish embassy released a statement on May 17 that contradicted US officials and video evidence, blaming instead the demonstrators, who, it said, had been "aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president".

The United States on Wednesday said it was voicing its "strongest possible" concern to Turkey over violence that erupted between protesters and Turkish security personnel during Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Washington.

Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said it had arrested two United States residents Ayten Necmi, 49, and Jalal Kheirabadi, 42, over the incident.

USA officials have criticized the Turkish government over violence outside its ambassador's residence in Washington.

He is scheduled to meet Netanyahu in Jerusalem before travelling to Bethlehem to meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He spoke just days before Trump starts a Middle East trip that includes meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.


"The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense", the statement said.

Because "police did not heed Turkish demands to intervene", Erdogan's security team and Turkish citizens moved in and "dispersed them", the news agency said. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior".

"We should throw the Turkish ambassador out of the country, we should identify those people that performed these unlawful acts of beating people up and they should be charged", Senator John McCain said on national television on Thursday morning.

Erdogan then gets out of the auto, and starts to watch how his security detail beats the protesters, while the first bodyguard returns to him, as if briefing on the happening.

Pursuing charges would also threaten to further inflame the uneasy relationship between the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally.

Metropolitan Police Department Chief Peter Newsham condemned the action Wednesday as an "assault" on those protesting "peacefully", warning that the department will "pursue everything that's within our legal power to hold the folks that were responsible accountable for their actions". A bodyguard was standing next to the car's open door and was updating the president on the situation, and Erdogan in turn was giving orders.
