Senator John McCain on Thursday called for the envoy to be expelled.

The Turkish president had just returned to the embassy after meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House when violence broke out as Turkish security pushed past police to confront protesters.

Eleven people were injured, including a police officer, and nine were taken to a hospital, the police chief, Peter Newsham, said at a news conference Wednesday.

Cavusoglu said Trump had understood Turkey's position, and did not challenge Erdogan when the Turkish president set out his possible response to the YPG.
