Erdogan said he warned Trump that Turkey would combat YPG if the group posed any security threat.

On Wednesday, the State Department said "violence is never an appropriate response to free speech".

"The actions seen outside the Turkish Embassy yesterday in Washington, D.C. stand in contrast to the First Amendment rights and principles we work tirelessly to protect each and every day", the police statement said.
