As members of the Muslim Brotherhood call for a popular uprising against the Egyptian military, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Monday that the administration is not ready to call the ouster of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi a coup.

When asked by Associated Press correspondent Nedra Pickler whether the White House could embrace that term, Carney replied,  "There are -- and again, to be blunt, there are significant consequences that go along with this determination, and it is a highly charged issue for millions of Egyptians who have different views about what happened."
