Turkey Has No Place In NATO

A sun-filled, blue sky hung over the stately brownstone residence of the Turkish Ambassador where Erdoğan had stopped after meeting earlier that day with President Trump. A small, organized crowd had gathered about a few hundred yards from the home's front door. They were there to demonstrate against the Turkish President. With just a few words to his bodyguards, Erdoğan seemingly unleashed them; they set upon the crowd, shoving and beating the peaceful protesters. Those protesters who had fallen to the pavement were viciously kicked. One man lay in a fetal position as the President's bodyguard savagely beat him.
