President Trump Blasts Mistreatment of Pastor Andrew Brunson as 'Total Disgrace'

The White House is diligently working for pastor Andrew Brunson's release from a Turkish prison. (ACLJ)

Turkey's decision to ignore continued demands for the release of innocent American pastor Andrew Brunson will not be tolerated.

Yesterday, after the third court date of this sham trial, pastor Andrew was sent back to prison, and the trial was again delayed another three months—until Oct. 12.

The highest levels of the U.S. government, all the way up to the White House, are fully engaged in response to the exploitation of Pastor Andrew, as our supposed "NATO ally" continues to hold him captive as a political pawn.

President Trump expressed outrage with Turkey and President Recep Erdoğan over the appalling mistreatment of an innocent American father and husband, rightly calling this travesty a "total disgrace."

This is urgent. Turkey's mockery of justice—bogus charges, blatant hearsay testimony and intolerable delays—must end now.

The ACLJ senior legal team is in Washington, D.C., right now to increase the pressure for pastor Andrew's immediate release.

We will not stop fighting until he is home safe.
