PRISONER/RELIGION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TURKEY: “President Donald Trump on Friday [10-12-18] said he hoped U.S. Christian pastor Andrew Brunson would be home safe soon, shortly after a Turkish court ruled to release him after a two-year detention…A Turkish court passed a 3-year and 1-1/2 month sentence on Brunson, who had been charged with terrorism offenses, but said he would not serve any further time because he had already been detained since October 2016.”
