Leading US Senator John McCain has urged the Donald Trump administration to expel Turkey’s Washington ambassador after clashes on Tuesday led to President Erdogan’s security personnel attacking Kurdish protestors outside the ambassador’s residence.

“We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America … This kind of thing cannot go unresponded to diplomatically,” McCain, a leading foreign policy voice in Congress, told MSNBC in an interview on Thursday, adding that legal action could also be pursued, Reuters reported.
