Barack Obama released a statement in support of the Islamist government instead of the moderate secular opposition attempting the coup.
The Politico reported:

President Barack Obama called on all parties to “support the democratically elected government of Turkey” on Friday amid reports of an attempted military coup in the country, an important but fickle U.S. ally that is home to a significant number of U.S. military assets and whose cooperation is considered key to defeating the Islamic State terrorist network.
Obama’s view was announced in a readout of a call between and Secretary of State John Kerry.

“The President and Secretary agreed that all parties in Turkey should support the democratically-elected Government of Turkey, show restraint, and avoid any violence or bloodshed. The Secretary underscored that the State Department will continue to focus on the safety and security of U.S. citizens in Turkey,” the statement form the White House said.
