US Senator John McCain has said Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is acting like a dictator rather than a president in the eyes of many Turks.

Speaking at Brookings Institute on Thursday, McCain, who is a staunch backer of a US intervention in the Syrian crisis, said there are more journalists jailed in Turkey than any other country in the world.

Speaking about a wide array of issues, especially the current conflict in Syria, McCain said Erdoğan is seen as a dictator in the eyes of many Turks.
