    Default Has the President remarked on Erdogans thugs openly attacking American protesters?

    Just asking. Cause plenty of Senators have chimed in, condemning the assault on freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.

    I can't find seem to find any statement from the President or his press secretary though.

    Are they too gutless to respond? It's been what, almost 24 hours?

    Some were, wasn't able to confirm how many earlier.

    His state department condemned it. Might be a little tricky for the President to do so personally, he still has to deal with Turkey on various issues.

    Tricky? He's Trump, not Obama. He has no problem condemning allies when he wants to.

    At least say something, you would be losing your mind right now if Obama didn't say a damn thing about this. You would be calling him a Muslim socialist scum.

    Goes after Canada and Mexico over trade, but won't mention Erdogans goons attacking US civilians.

    Coward.

    Anyone remember this?

    from https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...nkara-istanbul

    Barack Obama urged all parties in Turkey to back the “democratically elected” government, a clear denunciation of the attempted coup.
    Anyone think that may have not been the right call?

    Obama went on record openly backing this goon remember? Trumps state department condemned it. That is Trump condemning it. Just not personally.

    when confronted with libs violently stopping speech on campus and the concomitant accusation from the right of limiting free speech, libs condescendingly laugh and say "free speech" only means the government won't curtail speech.
    Libs now are saying that turkish thugs are stopping free speech?

    Oh look what I found.

    from http://thevillagessuntimes.com/2017/...on-protesters/

    A similar skirmish occurred a year ago in D.C. while Erdogan was giving a speech outside the Brookings Institute. There have been incidents involving his security detail in Ecuador.
    Can anyone find a quote of Obama personally condemning it?

    Erdogan isn't a hard core socialist..The hard core socialists want to overthrow Erdogan.

    Video of it here

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/01/politi...ers/index.html

    No arrests were made. So I guess that puts Trump one up on Obama. Here was his state departments forceful condemnation of that attack


    In response to the protests, State Department spokesperson John Kirby said that they "remain, as always, committed to the right of peaceful expression and protest."
    No sign of Obama making any personal condemnation and States response was weak compared to Trumps.

    Watch the beginning of the clip where you can see Turkish security run out and punch the protester.

    Trump can't say anything bad about Erdogan. It might cause trouble for his hotel in Turkey.
