WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday that it would wait to comment on a referendum that granted sweeping new powers to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

"There is an international commission that is reviewing this and issues a report in 10 to 12 days. We will wait and let them do their jobs," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said at a briefing.
