US top politician Nancy Pelosi has also angered Turkey with comments about President Donald Trump.
The Democrat reminded Trump that his country is a democracy: “You are not here in North Korea, not in Turkey, and not in Russia, Mr President.”
That statement by Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, fell badly with the Turkish Foreign Minister.
Mevlut Cavusoglu on Twitter called it a bad thing for American democracy that someone as “ignorant” as Pelosi can hold such a top position.
“You will learn to respect the will of the Turkish people,” he continued.
Pelosi had responded to Trump’s reluctant response, who had been asked whether he would guarantee a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election. “We’ll see what happens,” he said.
