Finally, after an excruciatingly long wait of almost two years, it appears the incarceration of United States pastor Andrew Brunson will finally come to an end. According to NBC News, the White House has brokered a deal to secure Brunsons freedom:
The White House expects North Carolina pastor Andrew Brunson to be released by the Turkish government and returned to the U.S. in the coming days, two years after he was detained, according to two senior administration officials and another person briefed on the matter.
Under an agreement senior Trump administration officials recently reached with Turkey, Brunson is supposed to be released after certain charges against him are dropped at his next court hearing, currently scheduled for Friday, the senior administration officials and a person briefed on the matter said.
The details of the deal are unclear, but those familiar with the discussions said it includes a commitment by the U.S. to ease economic pressure on Turkey.
The White House, however, isnt spiking the football and celebrating just yet. They are cautiously awaiting until Brunson gets home before any congratulations are issued. According to the NBC report, Trump administration officials arent fully confident that Turkey will actually go through with the agreement.

Never would have happened under Obama.
If a Muslim country grabbed you, he’d take their side and let you not.
Thank GOD !!!
or pay a ransom and let them keep you anyway.
Bring him home, then follow-up with recognizing the Armenian Genocide next April 24th.
Obunghole would have let him rot. He hates Christians.
Obama left him to rot in Turkey.
Trump is the freedom president.
With Erdogan, Pastor Brunson could be on his way home tomorrow, or not.
Totally unpredictable, even with a “deal” in place.
Obama watched as millions of innocent people were killed by his Jihadist friends in Iraq & Syria.
You go, Trump! Unfortunately, the left will not lift a finger to give you one speck of credit for this.
A strong win.
Unquestionably made them an offer they couldn’t refuse.
I am guessing that the deal was “You are taking innocent Americans hostage and we are tired of it and will make you suffer. Release the hostages and we will ease up on you a bit, keep them and we break you.”
For the past 6 months Erdogan has been eating a shit sandwich à la Trump and does not want a second serving.
Is there anything our President wont do to save Americans?
Wow -Awesome news if true !!!
I thought I read that some pretty tough sanctions were imposed on Turkey. Looks like they worked.
MY PRESIDENT!! Maybe the best yet!!!!!!!!!!
