Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that President Trump called him last week to apologize for the bloody fight between Erdogan’s security and protestors in D.C in May.
Erdogan told PBS NewsHour on Tuesday that Trump had “called me about a week ago about this issue.”
“He said that he was sorry and that he was going to follow up on this issue when we come to the United States within the framework for an official visit,” Erdogan said.
A grand jury indicted 19 defendants last month in the brawl that took place outside the Turkish embassy, including 15 Turkish security guards. Sixteen of those indicted were charged in June on criminal complaints.
