This is a waste of time. Our own press and freedoms are under attack. President Erdogan has no interest in what the US government thinks. We have our own potential strongman in office now which Erdogan may believe gives him license to behave as he wishes in the US. Get on with the business of the US people you have more than enough on your plate. Anyone with half a brain should have known what would happen if protesters showed up to confront Erdogan, there should have been police there to begin with. Screaming after the fact is a little late unless it was planned.
