In this raw video, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has a weeping-and-saluting 6-year-old girl brought on stage while he was delivering a speech at his ruling party's congress in the city of Kahramanmaras. After trying to comfort Amine Tiras by kissing her on both cheeks, Erdogan told the crowd: "She has the Turkish flag in her pocket. If she becomes a martyr, God willing, this flag will be draped on her." Some people were appalled and took to Twitter to criticize the president.
