Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose name Donald Trump doesn't know how to pronounce, met with POTUS in Washington on Tuesday, presumably to swap stories about their mutual friend Michael Flynn. Erdogan was visiting the city to finalize a trade agreement between the two countries when the detail attacked lawmaker Diego Vintimilla, who was reportedly protecting a female demonstrator. They could see the protestors and their placards- and chose to "disperse them". Eyewitness accounts, along with the testimony of Washington DC's police chief, confirm that the protest was loud but peaceful until Erdogan's goons waded in and attacked.
"We told them...we do not regard your cooperation with a terrorist group in Raqqa as healthy", Erdogan was cited as saying, but he said he expected a role for Turkey in Syria. A video showed two men bleeding from the head, and men in dark suits punching and kicking protesters, some lying on the ground.
