While turmoil swirls in Washington, DC, and the media continues its witch hunt against President Trump, he just keeps working.
On Tuesday, he met with the President of Turkey, and urged him to release an American man of God, who is wrongfully jailed there.
Pastor Andrew Brunson, of North Carolina, and his wife, were held in Turkey for Visa issues. But he has been held in jail there now since October, on very unclear charges of a terrorism-link nature.
Pastor Brunson and his wife have lived in Turkey for 23, running a small Christian church there. The Turkish government hasn’t release many details about why they are holding Pastor Brunson.
Pastor Brunson wrote a letter to President Trump earlier this year, asking for his help and President Trump is doing just that!
Both President Trump and VP Pence, during their meeting with the Turkish President on Tuesday, reportedly brought up the Pastor 3 times. It is believed that Turkey may be holding the Pastor as a bargaining chip, to manipulate the U.S. to extradite Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is living in Pennsylvania and who Turkey believes is a terrorist.
It is not OK for a country to hold an innocent man, a man of God even, as a political pawn!
