The People - - NEWS FEATURES -

FREED pas­tor An­drew Brun­son was wel­comed to the Oval Of­fice by Don­ald Trump yes­ter­day.

The US Pres­i­dent had been push­ing Turkey to re­lease Mr Brun­son who was jailed for three years in 2016 for al­leged links to out­lawed po­lit­i­cal groups.

He flew home to Amer­ica yes­ter­day from Izmir in a US mil­i­tary plane.

Be­fore he landed, Mr Trump tweeted: “It will be won­der­ful to see and meet him. He is a great Chris­tian who has been through such a tough ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I would like to thank [Turk­ish] Pres­i­dent Er­do­gan for his help!”
