Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned that lawmakers in his country may recognize the deaths of Native Americans as a genocide after Congress rebuffed Turkey and voted to acknowledge and condemn the Armenian genocide.
The proposed move, which would be largely symbolic, came after the Senate unanimously passed a bill recognizing the Turkish genocide of more than a million Armenians in the early 20th century.
The article goes on to state the following:
Erdogan threatened the tit-for-tat while speaking on a pro-government news channel on Monday, according to the Independent.
According to the report, Erdogan said:
“We should oppose by reciprocating such decisions in parliament. And that is what we will do. Can we speak about America without mentioning [Native Americans]? It is a shameful moment in U.S. history.”

I gave a quick take in a public radio story today about Erdogan’s threat to recognize Native American genocides. He is a disgrace and denies the Armenian genocide. I don’t want it. Thanks @pritheworld for seeking out a Native perspective. Story at 30:21https://t.co/SFpHJfBY2h
