From a Turkish prison to the White House in 24 hours – Freed Pastor Andrew prays with President Trump

from: 15 . 10 . 18

WASHINGTON – Pastor Andrew Brunson returned to the United States Saturday after two years of imprisonment and detention in Turkey.

“From a Turkish prison to the White House in 24 hours. That’s not bad,” said President Trump.

Trump welcomed Pastor Brunson home at the White House after helping secure his release.

Pastor Brunson was arrested and detained in Turkey since 2016.

Turkey accused Brunson of participating in a 2016 coup to overthrow the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Brunson was facing up to 35 years in prison if convicted if convicted of espionage, but those charges were dropped Friday.

In an effort to get him released, the White House imposed economic sanctions in Turkey.

“We are so grateful to so many people in Congress who stood with us, prayed with us and fought with us,” Brunson said.

President Trump said the US did not give up anything in return for the evangelical minister’s release and pushed back on reports he agreed to lift sanctions.

“Right now the whole world is a fan of yours, the whole world is a fan,” Trump said. “It’s a great honor to have you back home.”

“Today we are just incredibly grateful after two very long years,” Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) said.
