The incident comes with Turkey under the spotlight over women's rights after withdrawing from the Istanbul Convention, an international treaty on preventing domestic violence.
The 2011 Istanbul Convention, signed by 45 countries and the European Union, requires governments to adopt legislation prosecuting domestic violence and similar abuse.
French President Emmanuel Macron said in a television interview that Ankara would try to meddle in France's 2022 election.
President Erdogan's announcement of Turkey's withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention has been brought outrage across Europe.
Women's rights groups have called for protests after the Turkish president issued a decree annulling the country’s ratification of the Istanbul Convention.
Students have been protesting the appointment of an Erdogan loyalist as the rector of Istanbul's prestigious Bogazici University, with some demonstrations resulting in clashes with security forces.
The president said Turkey's current constitution contains "indelible" traces of the "military tutelage".
Its candidacy for EU membership long-since rebuffed, Turkey appears more firmly set than ever on a path of assertive independence. Where it leads, will be a major issue in the year to come.
Following the coup attempt, President Erdogan and his government instigated purges of the military and civil society on an unprecedented scale in modern Turkish history.
Ramping up the ongoing war of words between the two leaders, the Turkish president said Macron was "trouble" for France.
They were accused of directing the coup and bombing key government buildings, including a section of the parliament building.
The Turkish president's comments came during a controversial visit to the north of the island, occupied by Turkey since 1974 and not recognised internationally.
