WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 18, 2017) — Tulsi Gabbard ripped President Trump on Thursday for standing by and doing absolutely nothing about brutal attacks carried out earlier in the week by bodyguards of Turkish President Erdogan on American citizens in the Nation’s Capitol.

Trump extended an uncomfortably warm welcome to the Turkish President who is known for violent clashes wherever he goes.

Trump shakes hands with the President of Turkey at the White House.


Shocking footage shows a mob of Erdogan’s henchmen suddenly break through a line of American police, then violently attack a small group of protestors, some who were sitting on the ground.

Women and the elderly were among those brutalized in broad daylight. Journalists were also targeted.

Images showed agents of the Turkish government attacking random U.S. citizens in mobs, choking women and kicking old men in the face.

Not only has Trump, the President, done and said nothing about the brutal assault of American citizens in his own backyard, he extended a far greater welcome to the Turkish executive than our longtime ally, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who Trump rudely snubbed during her recent visit to the White House.

A growing chorus of lawmakers have blasted Trump’s failed leadership, including Senator John McCain who slammed the weak President’s non-response to the attacks, “We should throw the Turkish Ambassador out of the country.”

Thousands have also taken to social media to call out Trump’s complete silence and failure to protect American citizens from foreign violence on U.S. soil.

Trump’s message as President to American citizens is clear:  If you are exercising your Constitutional rights, and government agents from another country attack you, Donald Trump will do nothing to stop them or protect you.

Welcome to Trump’s America.
