Today, Turkish embassy staff attacked protesters outside of the Turkish Embassy in DC. Some of those demonstrators were US citizens.
An attack by armed foreign agents, on US citizens, on US territory sure smells like an act of war. Trump's response on Twitter: nothing, except a tweet about how tickled he was to meet Erdogan.
The response of the DC police: arrested two demonstrators, left Erdogan's goons untouched. If Trump has any b@lls, he'd declare the people responsible to be personae non gratae.
If they can't be prosecuted (diplomatic immunity), they can be deported -- march them up the airstairs of a "Con Air" plane at Dulles, flanked by armed US Marshals, on live national TV. Make it as humiliating as possible; make it clear that attacks by foreign governments on US soil are never acceptable.
Will Trump man up? Doubt it.
