President Donald Trump said Friday he will continue fighting with Turkey about its decision to detain Pastor Andrew Brunson, threatening additional action against the country.
“Turkey has been a problem for a long time,” Trump said to reporters as he left the White House. “They have not acted as a friend.”
The president called the charges against Brunson “phony,” adding that Brunson was not a spy.
“We haven’t seen the last of that. We are not going to take it sitting down,” Trump said. “They can’t take our people. So you will see what happens.”
