Tell who is your friend and it’ll be told you who you are. Give power to erdogan and he will make a new genocide in us. Where is the prestige of the us or the us afraid of turks. So a good lesson for the trump for the future before shaking anyone’s or erdogan’s hand without having a mind who is that person. If I were a trump I could kick erdogan out of my country without and pity as far as no respect to me invitation and to my country. Bravo …. With this behavior erdogan disgraced us policy… Read more »

To be fair, those protesting Erdotard in Moscow on the Potomac are most likely Gulenist CIAQAEDA-ns, so beating them up into a pulp is the very least any of us would hope those bodyguards we’d normally hope would get beaten up themselves should reasonably do.

AKP is Erdolf party and a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot. So is al-Qaeda.
Gullen was the main Erdolf ally for 10 years, he’s nothing else than Erdolf’s Roehm except Erdolf didn’t managed to get him during his night of the long knives… It’s the same scum.

Yada yada.
@RT_Erdogan security guards VIOLENTLY ATTACK PEACEFUL protestors in Washington, DC! Are ERDOGAN & his bodyguards afraid of US Free Speech?

These were NOT TERRORISTS, NOT AL QAEDA. They posed absolutely NO THREAT to anyone here or anywhere. DC police were onsite and handle peaceful protests everyday. They were OUTRAGED at VIOLENT INTERFERENCE of Turkish Security without cause.

Erdogan bodyguards violated peace in D.C. and because they were GUESTS of U.S., ERDOGAN owes Americans, the D.C. Police Dept, those peaceful protesters & President Trump a very sincere APOLOGY! Erdogan must work with U.S. for JUSTICE for people seriously hurt.
