White House

The following is a news update from the White House:

“President Trump on Saturday welcomed home American pastor Andrew Brunson, who was freed from Turkey, saying it was a satisfying end to a ‘long journey,’” S.A. Miller reports in The Washington Times.

Mr. Brunson, who spent almost two years detained in Turkey, “thanked Mr. Trump for fighting for him and his family. ‘You really fought for us, incredibly so,’ said Mr. Brunson, who was accompanied in the Oval Office by his wife Norine and two of their three children.”

The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes that after being unjustly imprisoned by Turkey, American pastor Andrew Brunson has returned home. “On Friday a Turkish court convicted Mr. Brunson on unsupported terrorism charges, yet sentenced him to time served. This leniency was purportedly for good behavior, but more likely a response to U.S. pressure.”

“America cannot be great if no one takes us seriously. The good news is that President Trump is making other countries respect us again, which is why leaders from around the world, allies and competitors alike, are lining up to negotiate with him,” retired senior intelligence operations officer Tony Shaffer writes in The Hill.

“Now is the time for criminal justice reform, and President Trump is the man to do it,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes. President Trump, “more than any recent president, has talked about battling crime. Today, he sees prison reform as part of that approach. Let’s hope Congress gets a bill to his desk so that he can redefine what it means to be ‘tough on crime.’”

“File this one under ‘why wasn’t it already illegal?’: President Trump last week signed two bills banning gag orders that stop pharmacists from alerting you to how you can pay less for a prescribed drug,” the New York Post editorial board writes. The editors add that this small step “should save some consumers hundreds of dollars a year” and is part of President Trump’s drive to lower drug prices.

    Only FOX news played this – the fake news channels abc/cbs/nbc rejected it because the subject was not MUSLIM !

    Later that day Pastor Andrew Brunson, prayed over The Trump and performed an unsuccessful exorcism. The demon lives on.
