According to a several articles outlining State Representative Margo Davidson’s (D-Pa.) visit to Greece earlier this week, Davidson called coup plotters, who killed 250 people and injured more than 2,000 people, “victims” of the disaster.

Further questions include who funded this trip and why was she meeting with people on foreign soil when that isn’t something a state representative does.

Davidson’s recent visit to Greece outraged international political figures, organizations, and citizens after her compassion towards coup leaders.

“A Pennsylvania State Representative visited coup plotters and their families who fled to Greece after the failed coup attempt in Turkey,” an Istanbul based newspaper The Daily Sabah wrote.

According to this publication, Davidson told reporters and families of the coup that it’s a “shame” for Turkey to track them. The publication alleges that Davidson was mislead to believe FETÖ propaganda.

Davidson obviously didn’t do her homework on the situation while allegedly openly supporting and meeting with fugitives wanted in connection to the incident.

The president of the U.S.-based Turkish Hertitage Organization, Ali Çinar, told Daily Sabah Davidson’s actions in supporting and visiting people responsible for killing innocent civilians was “very unfortunate” on all Pennsylvania “congresswomen,” though Davidson is not a member of Congress but a local state representative.

“And then, when I was asked by a leader of the Turkish community which I’ve known for a number of years now to come and see for myself what was going on, I was more than open to be a witness to what was happening to friends and family members of my constituents here in Upper Darby,” Davidson said in a video.

What is a coup? A coup is defined as a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government. Take a look at 5 famous coups dating back to the 1700’s.

We reached out to the United States Department of State for a statement regarding Davidson’s visit to Greece.
