Trump, Turkish president meet with 'many issues' to discuss

Trump, Turkish president meet with 'many issues' to discuss”

Senators Patrick Leahy and Chris Van Hollen said the move came after they proposed their own legislation to halt any sales to the Turkish Presidential Protection Directorate.

Before the meeting, Trump said Erdogan has "become a friend of mine".

"We should also stop selling weapons to units of the Turkish National Police that have been arbitrarily arresting and abusing Turkish citizens who peacefully criticize the government". This is indeed the case, but we never put it as such.

The Turkish president had similar criticism for the portrayal of the Daesh terror group as representing Islam. "This is among the principles of our faith", Erdogan said.

"My dear brothers, my dear brothers, my dear brothers, I have an important request from you: don't let three to five impertinent people, three to five hall terrorists ruin our lovely gathering", he said.
