Trump Attacks a NATO Ally!!!

That NATO Ally? Turkey, which is currently trying an American pastor for "terrorism," which is what Erdogan calls anything he feels threatens his political position.

U.S. President Donald Trump on July 19 urged his Turkish opposite Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Twitter to help release an American pastor kept behind bars in Turkey since October 2016.

"A total disgrace that Turkey will not release a respected U.S. Pastor, Andrew Brunson, from prison. He has been held hostage far too long," Trump said.

"[Turkish President] Recep Tayyip Erdoğan should do something to free this wonderful Christian husband & father. He has done nothing wrong, and his family needs him!" he added.

On July 18, a court in Turkey's Aegean province of İzmir ruled that Brunson, an American pastor being tried on terrorism and spying charges, will be kept in jail pending trial.

Flashback: Barack Obama previously hailed Erdogan as a role-model for Muslim leaders.


Was Obama a traitor? Was Obama a lover of autocrats?

Should he be arrested and tried for treason?

Just asking questions.
