Freed American pastor Andrew Brunson has arrived back in the United States and prayed with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Saturday.
He prayed that God would provide Trump “supernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country and for him.”
Brunson had been confined in Turkey for nearly two years and faced up to 35 years in jail.
He was accused of committing crimes on behalf of Kurdish militants and to aid a Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, accused by Turkey of engineering the failed coup.

Trump welcomed Brunson to the White House to celebrate his release from nearly two years of confinement in Turkey, which had sparked a diplomatic row with a key ally and outcry from US evangelical groups.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
