    Trump Secures Release Of American Pastor In Turkey

    President Trump's administration has been working feverishly to free an American pastor who was imprisoned in Turkey on terrorism charges. The situation took many twists and turns but Turkey has finally agreed to release American Andrew Brunson.

    According to Fox News:

    ▬ ▬ ▬
    Andrew Brunson, the American pastor who was imprisoned and then placed under house arrest in Turkey over his alleged ties to an outlawed group, was ordered freed on Friday and sentenced to time served, a Turkish judge ruled.

    The decision ended a tense diplomatic standoff between the U.S. and Turkey that began following Brunson’s October 2016 arrest. The 50-year-old pastor was facing terror and espionage-related charges and was detained by Turkey as part of a government crackdown following a failed coup attempt months earlier.

    Brunson appeared Friday at prison complex in Izmir for his fourth hearing, telling a courtroom that he is "an innocent man.

    “I love Jesus, I love Turkey,” he said, according to the Associated Press.

    Turkish prosecutors have linked him to groups who they say orchestrated a coup against Erdogan. Trump and his administration had a tense showdown with the NATO ally over the imprisonment, slapping harsh economic sanctions on Turkey in retaliation.

    In the end, it looks like the economic pressure worked.

      Finally a president that cares about Americans no matter where they get grabbed. He recently got the Marine that was being held in Mexico released also.

        This is good news. I'm hoping relations might be better between the two nations, we need all of the friends we can get in the Unstable East.
