Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said “The Turkish Republic is determined and capable of destroying all threats against its sovereignty,” on his Twitter account on the same day.

"Today we’re sending Trump another message, look out your window," Toni Van Pelt, president of the National Organization for Women, told marchers in Washington. "See us, hear us, feel our power.
