The Jailed American Christian Pastor Brunson Has Been the Nucleus of President Trump's Punitive Tariffs Against Turkey
8-12-18, President Trump announced punitive doubling tariffs against the nation of Turkey in protest over the detention of American Christian Pastor Andrew Brunson who was arrested on terrorism charges after the attempted coup against Mr Erdogan in 2016, saying: “Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time!”
The Turkish lira tumbled more than 16 per cent on Friday, 8/10/18 – a record low against the dollar – after Washington imposed sanctions as well as steel and aluminum tariffs demanding that jailed American pastor Andrew Brunson be released. The US is the biggest destination for Turkish steel exports with 11 per cent of the Turkish export volume.
On July 25, 2018 it was reported that Pastor Brunson was released to house arrest ... apparently not or not good enough!
President Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey said: “It is wrong to dare bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor. I am calling on those in America again. Shame on you, shame on you. You are exchanging your strategic partner in Nato for a priest. We have not made concessions on justice so far [on Brunson] and we will never make any!" More here
