President Trump, Vice President Pence Raise Pastor Brunson’s Case Three Times with Turkey’s President

Pastor Andrew Brunson

JAY SEKULOW, ACLJ

I just received a call from the Vice President’s office. President Trump and Vice President Pence raised the case of American Pastor Andrew Brunson three times today [May 16] with Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

This is exactly what we asked the President to do and is a major sign of significant progress toward bringing Pastor Andrew home.

Pastor Andrew – a U.S. citizen – has been wrongfully imprisoned in Turkey for more than seven months because of his Christian faith. Today, Turkish President Erdogan met with President Trump at the White House. Last week, I urged the President and the Vice President when I met with them in the White House to raise Pastor Andrew’s case with Turkish leaders. Today, they did just that, raising his plight directly to President Erdogan.

We will continue fighting for Pastor Andrew’s freedom across the globe.  This is a major step in the right direction toward this wrongfully imprisoned American pastor’s release.

Right now it is more critical than ever to have your voice heard. Take action with us by signing our urgent petition for Pastor Andrew’s freedom at BeHeardProject.com.
