ANKARA, November 13. /TASS/. Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would not be surprised to learn that quite soon those protesting now against election of Donald Trump begin asking for appointments to meet him. Haberturk reports this is how the Turkish leader commented on the situation around rallies in the U.S. after the presidential election in that country.
"I think, these protests are only temporary, I believe these protests against Trump demonstrate intolerance of those who lost (voted for Hillary Clinton - TASS)," Erdogan said. "No wonder if quite soon most of the protesters will be on a line to meet Trump."
The U.S. president-elect "has won without receiving money from FETO (Fethullah Gulen Terrorist Organization)," the Turkish leader continued. "He won on his own. He has financial opportunities, using which he conducted the election campaign. And as for the other party (Clinton’s team) - the media received leaks she had got money from that organization."
Ankara accuses Gulen, who now resides in the U.S., and FETO of involvement in the coup attempt in Turkey on July 15.
On Saturday, Turkey’s foreign ministry expressed concern over the growing violence in the U.S. and called on its citizens to be cautious while visiting the U.S. cities.
