Trump Actually Did It, and It’s Going Down, Now

By

He’s been president for nearly two years now, and still some folks haven’t learned that when President Trump threatens to do something, you better believe he’ll do it.

The world got too used to American presidents making threats on which they never intended to follow through.

But Trump, as we all know, is no typical president.

The government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is now learning that lesson the hard way.

From the Christian Post:

The Trump administration followed through on its threats to take action against Turkey over the detention of American Pastor Andrew Brunson by sanctioning two top government officials on Wednesday.

The U.S. Department of the Teasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced that it has sanctioned Turkey’s Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gul and Minister of Interior Suleyman Soylu, both of whom lead agencies that are responsible for the arrest and imprisonment of the 50-year-old North Carolina native.

“Pastor Brunson’s unjust detention and continued prosecution by Turkish officials is simply unacceptable,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement. “President Trump has made it abundantly clear that the United States expects Turkey to release him immediately.”

And Turkey better believe that things WILL escalate from here.
