Freed American Pastor Meets with President Trump

American pastor Andrew Brunson met with President Donald Trump at the White House Saturday, a day after Turkish authorities released him from captivity.

"From a Turkish prison to the White House in 24 hours.

That's not bad," President Trump said.

Turkey arrested Brunson in 2016 and charged him with helping to plot an attempted coup there.

Brunson denied the accusations, and American officials  called the charges "absurd." Turkey's president suggested the U.S. turn over a Turkish cleric his government believes orchestrated the failed coup  in exchange for Brunson .

But before Saturday's meeting, the president  insisted on Twitter  that "no deal" had been made with the Turkish government for Brunson's release.

The Trump administration  imposed sanctions  on prominent Turkish officials earlier this summer.
