What a great thing to see! The American Pastor who was freed after two years in captivity in Turkey, made his way home and to the White House all within 24 hours. What a whirlwind!
Pastor Andrew Brunson flew to Germany where he and his wife met our Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, during the refueling stop. He was photographed kissing the American flag. What a great moment!
Ambassador Grenell tweeted about it:
I welcomed Pastor Brunson & his wife to Germany on their refueling stop. He’s almost home thanks to @realDonaldTrump.
When I presented him with the US flag, he immediately kissed it. #agratefulnation pic.twitter.com/b82gA7PXVr

This afternoon, President Trump met with Brunson in the White House where Pastor Brunson prayed over President Trump. Another great moment! President Trump can use all the prayers he can get from everyone!
"My wife and I pray for you."

President Trump made a point to say “we don’t pay ransom, not anymore anyway”. Great job Mr. President!
