To be honest with you, and their criticism was all it was just to to Hollywood that came from the left, who is there are like three outspoken conservative well-known actors and their basically blacklisted from major motion pictures because they are conservative in Hollywood. Yet it was the Republicans were to Hollywood overweight is a virtual convention. You needed to keep eyeballs on how do you do that make it look interesting and have great content and I will tell you from the very first speaker to the very last speaker.

There was great content and dad what I liked and then we'll get into the specifics about pastor Nana Pastor Bronson appearing with Pres. Trump at the White House with others who were illegally imprisoned abroad, they were both illegally imprisoned abroad, because their Christian faith in they will be joining us live on the broadcast today, so 1-800-684-3110 but that I liked was that lack of just lost filler music videos.

There was a video. It had a point. It was well produced. I thought it was right on target. I thought was great, and yes, that the left. I mean even Anderson Cooper said yet to say the production quality was was far superior to the DNC but the content was also superior and it was one shot in particular, I don't have Pastor Bronson and pastor Nairn on later in the broadcast on next segments coming up what ferocity ACLJ and for you that support the work of the ACLJ what you think about this for a moment in that interview that they did where the President interviewed each of those six hostages. We had three clients in that room we had pastor Nairn Pastor Bronson and then our private capacity, the President of the United States. So I stole this to Pam yesterday when that was going on. It's pretty unique. There you go.

I mean talk a part of history and your support of the American Center for Law and Justice of the ACLJ allows us to do all of us can get those to all from India from Turkey.

Your support of the ACLJ is critical in the last days of our matching challenge campaign. I would encourage you to support the work of the ACLJ unless I was just a reminder about how how important our work is to of our clients are there with the present United States on night one of the Republican convention, recognizing that they were released from illegal imprisonment because the Christian faith is our clients pay folks we have those clients.

Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACLJ's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollar gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACLJ the work we do. Simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in the protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms gift today online LJ only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission like it will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to serve the many ways your membership is empowering the right question for copy mission in life today online/secular likely Army take your phone calls even in the state of 164 3110. But as we told you last night at the beginning of the Republican national convention. Two of our clients. The American made appearance with Pres. Trump at the White House, along with four others who were illegally detained or arrested some charged in prison are two clients because of their Christian faith. Both will be joining us.

They live on the broadcast and first we have during this right now pastor Brian Nairn who was detained seven months in India before he was finally freed a first attainted October 5 of 2019, we began representing pastor Nairn. He was freed on May 15, 2020. He is the pastor of the international House of prayer ministries in Shelbyville, Tennessee pastor Darren Inc. so much for joining us on today's broadcast back to let me ask you this in them were glad you're back home more glad that you're safe.

I give us inside the White House yesterday when it was like teller audience (Bart Waddell Bartlett, Pres. and the most intelligent person I ever met kind comparing you know compassionate guy really is the outcome of more New York but in person. The great guy and he really cares about the American people. This is because we work on your case, courts are our senior counsel cc I'll let that effort, but I will tell you when as I spoke to the President over the months in prison, he would ask a bring up on his own. He would tell me what they're doing the state when the course was heavily involved to, but he was committed, and that's I gotta say this, and again you people vote for whoever they want to vote for buyer taste something in working with several administration Republican and Democrat.

I've never seen a President is engaged in obtaining the release of Americans held overseas, but I have with Donald Trump to present United States sets a new standard in Isaiah 9. Pastor I think you brought up some that he was very important.

A lot of people note, Pres. Trump is that campaigner 2016 as our tough commander-in-chief who uses tough rhetoric but has obvious he connected with the American people you saw aside that we've all seen edits because were we also represent him in his private capacity about the fact he cares so much about America and Americans that when there are people like you who are Americans that are being unjustly detained. It is on his mind. He is compassionate.

They try to make about to be assembled as no compassion, no empathy and the fact is it's it's natural for them.

He cares about it deeply. And like my dad said that while asking consistently asked is it menstruation will be doing to get home. What are we doing to get them and I think that was on display last night because the American people got to see that was something he wanted to highlight how much he cared about Americans who are imprisoned unjustly or held unjustly abroad and bring them home, pastor walked into the room and told all over you all the details all the people everybody involved in the legal matter, political matter.

Everybody cold storage right out.

This is one of the things that you know, we believe, understand, and in these cases are complex and the wing there was in you were dealing with an outline was still complex. Turkey a NATO ally would be hearing from Andrew Bronson coming up next guiding pastor ferocity ACLJ you can imagine how was process we were watching last night and this goes for our members to around the country vertically and around the world, but how thrilling it was for us to see you and Andrew Bronson in the same room at the same time, with another one of my clients. The President of the United States brush that was a pretty awesome moment to say the lease and we thank God that you that you released in your your your back in your home. How are you doing how you feel good and right below remarks never been better never been more valuable and thank you got edited out. I'll drop my mentor because they think that all the heavy lifting album all is a religion.

I came home and out pretty well but she did. Yes, you did a good look CCL has a heart for this. She does a great job on this and I'm glad you mentioned her and the course about the President obsolete the Lord did the whole thing but without the President implementing various decisions along the way you would still be fighting these cases out so but CC has done a great job of the separate, let me say something to for our audience and that is cc family has as had a medical emergency with her son and I will encourage people and were in the middle of the broadcast.

Right now, but since pastor Nairn you said and I don't know if you know the situation pastor but her her son Jordan has had on knocking it into the details of a very significant surgery where he's having a pretty slow recovery were praying for a great result pastor, would you mind praying for cc her family right now that you said that you write down your open art 10. Everything you know the heart of the plate how much she loved the luggage in the country really loves you more than any of the rest of the time that help along, another thought would be the one that you would call recovery to advance quickly and that you would be) at hospital with them now powerfully strong local Lord in the name of Jesus. Pastor Nairn icy text cc last night the screenshot to the newer situation and when should should be able to be watching someone he revealed to see that photo view with the President and pastor Bronson. There and and I can tell you just how incurred she was and and how excited she was that you were able to be there with the present United States and that this again brought up the issue that she cares so much about. We all do with ACLJ which is the issue of the persecution of Christians a targeted rest in the tent detainment of Christians by foreign governments, some friendly, some unfriendly governments and and the that the fact that the President shows during the first night the Republican convention without all the eyes, the American people are audit to highlight that issue.

I know I she was very encouraged by center. The clip of it as well so she could see that while she was with her son so I pastor I would ask you this. Your back now.

As a pastor in the international House of prayer is in Shelbyville, Tennessee. The website is IHOP M.com and it were all in Tennessee. If people want to visit your church are you are all operating right out like at the different capacity level just so people listeners are interested in coming here. Pastor Nairn preach that are in the Tennessee area and allowed to cure all operating right but old turtle out the window everything normal everything natural and we love we love people more than anything else in our motto that are charged with the number one thing that almost every service the plaintiff like Arthur Lee don't hurt each other no matter what you stated that Shelbyville or Tennessee area you want to go see Pastor Nairn preach. Check out the IHOP M.com that's the house of prayer church that's his church website to find out the information about their services. Pastor Nairn.

It was a daughter get to speak to you. I'm so glad you're home like kind of getting life back to normal. I know you also the situation with with your with one of your children and it was important for you to get back for that reason quickly tell people that the exit wasn't as you were suffering. It was your family as well and it was only we have only about a medical just turned 30 last month and melodic work a full-time job at hospital and it was clear the mantis that might help in the grace of God and the strength of hundreds of thousands of people send prayers every day and and and finances were incredibly good cost a small fortune that little project we did in the Lord was great in crisis and is taken care of ever lately. I pastor we appreciated.

Thanks for coming.

Glad you're home with the President glad that we saw a positive outcome. In that case, thank you so much for being with us.

We appreciate it. Thank you again that we will hear from pastor Bronson live as well.

Later in the broadcast.

I just would encourage you folks. This is a reason why sport X right there in the Oval Office last night yeah and and again that this is I know pastor Bronson you so once before when he first got home he prayed with the President, but then to go back again and you heard it from some of the others were detained at first time around. You kind of thoughts, aiming for the first time in the Oval Office with the present United States. It is hard try to member what I'm saying is hard to remember, kind of what happened.

Kelly Kelly flash file for you and you walk out and say what just happened yet in GE. So to be able to go back. That second time for pastor Bronson and really take it all in is quite an honor as well.

Not a well-deserved by the way, after being imprisoned in Turkey for 20 over two years because of his Christian faith was present from who brought these American pastors home and I thought that was just very moving moment, which by the way criticized by the left line is as present from time try to show he spake he had a video as it is done more for hostage release than a President US is probably Taylor's pulling teeth to get the Obama ministration do anything on Christians and for American Christians in prison brought pulling teeth. Congressional hearings we had to go to now you have an ally, becomes that in the White House support the work of ACLJ. W.

Patrick donations last week of our matching challenge ACLJ.org donate today ACLJ.only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACOG's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACOG were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later there: when Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question for copy mission life today online ACOG/the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those faith uncovering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACOG would not be able to do any of this without your support for that.

We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help me way limited time you can participate in the ACOG's matching challenge every dollar you donate $10 gift dollar gift becomes 100.

This is a critical time for the ACOG.

The work we simply would not occur without your generous take part in our matching challenge make a difference in protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms gift today online LJ and in the latest J secular man to original tunes that some believed by the monkeys play that if the entry is a bonus today but were also asked them doing it today laid down the final drums for two new tunes at the end of the month we met the challenges with the matching challenge constantly now that again will be honestly different virtual but you'll get out for tunes basically that children play one time and the other two never seen before that were doing now to great songs. Looking forward to that. Let's get into the issue of the actual convention yesterday and I want to juxtaposition here are two things you made a big deal about this because Biden made this statement about miracles in the trunk at Rivers miracles to so I want to let start with the President trumps. This is an interview with one of the hostages and that Mr. Holton was in jail for.

I think was was the amount time is there long time and Venezuela can imagine I'll take a little presents as great people of Utah really wanted me to do something about the two of you and we were able to do it and that little bit of a miracle I think frankly was a very hostile.

And that we appreciate everybody working so hard with us but we are able to get you both back to you living in Utah now. I hope so. Say hello to the folks in Utah because they great people. He worked hard to get them out but he said frankly, we were able to do it in a little bit of a miracle I think, frankly, so he acknowledged that you do it on his own. Scott power from God helping on these things. I think on all these matters, let's juxtapose this Jordan with Joe Biden social talk set up first to Joe Biden box.

The idea of miracles. He actually said I saw these many commentators there. Tracy will last. I was doom and gloom and dark and it was Joe Biden who said last week is no miracles coming. This is the guy they say so religious they are making jokes about that last week and again I am not questioning his faith. But it's weird for person of faith, say there's no miracles, no God, give us a brain so sometimes the mix of miracle and brain and to discount that would absolute miracle is just disgusting. That's what Joe Biden did take a listen. Just as not to spend in Canada or Europe or Japan almost anywhere else in the world.

The present case, telling us the virus is going to disappear. He keeps waiting for America. While I have news for him no miracle is coming. I really hope Joe by drunk and pray pray and believe he is wrong because when they come up with a virus and I'm a vaccine for the virus.

I believe that will be miracle gets God uses human beings, but you think.

Like I said the other day when Jonah Saul came up with the polio vaccine that the parents in the 1950s weren't saying miracle gives you the tale of two cities, the tale of two parties and that's what it is they both start no miracles and print the President was criticized often for being too self absorbed in all this is, instead of saying to Mr. Holt.

You know I got you out and I didn't myself and we got done he says we were able to do it in a little bit of a miracle. Frankly, because he acknowledged that these were not easy and that it takes Providence so there you have it. That was just one take away then join you mention the doom and gloom aspect. I actually thought when that Cuban-American owner of the business who left Cuba and try to compare what was going on with the left of the Democratic Party to what he experiences a family. I thought there were a lot of moving night got moments in the night.

That was one of let's go ahead and play some of his statement I made more but I am 100% American thesis. The greatest country in the world. I said this before I gave away everything that I have to would not equal 1% for that was given when I came to this great country of ours. The gift of freedom.

How does MSNBC and CNN not say that was a moving touching, uplifting, real moment about the beauty of America from someone that would know the difference firsthand, but rather than acknowledging anything good.

They painted with its dark.

It was a dark convention.

I thank those that you know they are so committed to you. I think that no one endorses candidates here, but if they keep this up. It will be a landslide not license convinced the reason why they wouldn't knowledge any of that proceeding brought out fact checkers for this convention didn't have it for the Democrats only to give an excuse you're actually said what we did have them use them as much.

Things he said were my only body, which is where right now and then some set that's one CNN trying to play the middle of the ground know they're not just like the left. They displayed a different way than MSNBC. MSNBC was as happy about last week's because he really wanted Bernie Sanders, CNN really likes more like Joe Biden types there all the to the left there all freaking out. That was 90 on this is your opening okay and that story for Mr. Alvarez. It's about America's greatness. Just like what Tim Scott talked about when Tim Scott talked about his family over the cotton fields to Congress.

It's about America as a great place as a land of opportunity, not as a horrible place.

And you know what it is that the far left. It's now running the Democratic Party wants to paint the picture of a dark America sad America. It was darkly lit last week at the DNC and everything was. Everything is so bad and trumpet so horrible in life is so bad here and yet this is still even the Mr. covert Mr. that the pandemic you don't agree with it down trumps politics. This is still the land of opportunity, and I want you by Mr. Alvarez saying that tonight.

Last night at the RNC is also endorsing the Republican Party in the in the present United States me that that's what he was doing there, so he was just making a comment about America. He was saying the America the way present season, in contrast how the other side sees it because I you we had Nancy Pelosi that yesterday she calls enemies of the state is a solid display that people if we have enemies of the state will enter think what would my motivator to expose funding postal funding. Here we go let's test For localized organized and not like the President to tear anybody from voting support the postal system, which election Central doing everything they can't suppress the vote with your actions scare people into my 8 x 7 lifeless Marine tax the role of the postal system and all the things it's really actually shameful ways to state that the language the dictatorships that Mr. Everest fled from calling people enemies the state who had charges like that brought against him who rejoins the next half hour and her Brunson was deemed in his state state of Turkey pays him. Now let me take what I want to request. We are in the last days of our matching challenge campaign and your use of your thought today the first of our broadcaster was two of our clients really free with the President in the room together. That doesn't happen without you. This broadcast does not happen on radio, TV on all the social media platforms without your support, where last few days of her matching challenge campaign ACLJ.board that's ACLJ.org have you give WW donate we get a match for ACLJ.org back with more of the American Center for Law and just as critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be now $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 you can make a difference in the world protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most to you and your family. Give a gift today online okay live from Washington DC and secular secular to the first night of the Republican national convention in their final segment broadcast talk about what's coming up tonight.

We've already heard from Pastor Brian Nairn. He appeared last night.

User client appeared, I say with Pres. Trump on the first I the Republican national convention at the White House along with pastor Brunson and four other Americans who were illegally imprisoned pastor Brunson pastor were detained and Nairn were were done that was done to them because of their Christian faith. Specifically, that's why they were highlighted and brought Utah couple to yes, the Utah couples was a four of the six at least were were detained because of their their religious faith and Pres. Trump wanted to remind the American people at on that first day, the convention what he and his administration have done.

How committed they are to the release of Americans unjustly imprisoned or detained abroad, especially those who are unjustly detained or imprisoned abroad because their Christian faith.

And he didn't and eight. The setting that would get the most attention possible from a lot of Americans who remember do not often tune in to Fox cable news may not even have heard about your stories like this and they start paying attention to politics that could be Christians out and people care about Christians were imprisoned abroad that may be the first time they heard about pastor Brunson pastor Nairn because he may not be a listers to yell radio conservative talk Christian talker cable news and and so they got to hear those stories and encourage them to find out more because it shows a different side of the present also.

Dad's.

You said it was three of our clients.

There to ACLJ clients and one in our private capacity to help you. I miss. It was a pretty unique moment for us out. I'll tell you, that is, you got to cases of international implication, one involving ending the other involving Turkey and its your toxic unmet human lives that we do we treat these as debt publications and then there they are in the Oval Office with Jordan. I've been in many, many times over the last four years and then another one of our clients in an individual or individual capacity as private lawyers is present United States. So I think the six people there so there were three more clients of ours.

I just think it reinforces what gods allowed us to do over the years here with these kind of cases, and as we said in the earlier I want to say it again for those just listening. She could be with us, take us with her family and her sons having has had significant surgery I was doing better but still has a road to recovery a cc heil did a phenomenal job in the representation of these clients and I'll say thank you to inode pastors did as well. The President knows express ECI's NCC up there when when Andrew Brunson met with the present.

The first time I think I had CC goes right thing to do and I'm I'm glad I didn't she deserve it and she deserves our thanks in our prayers as we said early & Pastor Maren praying for only get into some of the other substantive ones burden Jones, former DeKalb County CEO we live in the County in Georgia. Phenomenal speaker and he gave a great message is Democrat state house represented now in Georgia said he still are elected officials Democrat need talk, but how they try to push them out of the party. Yet you can't. You can't force someone out and Scott was incredible gets something that I'll Nikki Haley, I think on for the foreign-policy examples back and forth to point by point about the trust administration. What the Obama ministration and that includes Biden, then of course, so I think this it was a very good opening you ought visually that was was Eli does a great everything works. There were no technical flaws allowed on school choice last night to a lot of talk about that. Another issue that the ACLJ is really out front on you in the in the Democrats they were worried about making two much of their convention lives anything they can pull it off there. The Hollywood event to predict production teams write most of what you saw last night was life effectively a few things that worked completely live. So I think it was a totally different, I feel that would probably will see a very different kinds of bump from this convention. Joe Biden got the post. That no bump in the convention, which is not surprising if folks we come back regarding enjoyment.

Pastor Nairn whatever ACLJ clients.

He was there with present White House and on last night.

His Christian will be joining us next support the work of ACLJ donate online ACLJ.org term matching challenge final weeks of the month ACLJ donate today at ACLJ never double the impact your donation pastor Brunson joint is not the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad.

Ron will get to you now make sure I get your signed copy of my book the next red wave. If you if you continue to hold on. If you're able to, but we got a very special guest right now.

Pastor Nairn, who was imprisoned in India.

India detained in India, joined us the first half hour. The broadcast Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was imprisoned in Turkey for over two years because of his Christian faith and charged with crimes, like aiding terrorism, facing serious prison terms joins us live now after he was able to visit the White House in the present again. Many of you will remember the first time pastor Brunson met with Pres. Trapani was released in pastor Brunson did something amazing I think, which was knelt and prayed for the present and they had a picture that actually in the pre-video the actual interview so that was quite a moment of passion, but it's on the screen.

Now there is lots of days relaxing and they use that last night which I thought was a extremely moving pastor Brunson to remind people after release it when you were going to the Oval Office you want to pray for the present. My wife and I ask God for an opportunity to do that and it work so we are very glad to be able to do that. What was it like being with the President.

Other other people that were held other hostages in the Oval Office. I recently heard yesterday with a good experience, and other people.

A couple of people who were present for their faith, and of course we experienced some of the same think event on different countries.

The fear that there sometimes and also support about people praying for us in a couple of us were held by a field day. I know that it was interesting, made the comment that we three clients in the room.

Actually, in addition to you.

In addition to Pastor Nairn with present United States interpersonal capacity.

Of course, not ACLJ but was pretty pretty moving moment for us. We remind people, as I think is important.

If it were trying to show the scope and nature of how these cases work in these international diplomacy efforts. You have to do to get to obtain release of about pastor or anyone else that matter is, is not easy. Remind everybody what you were held in jail for two years for in Turkey after him and explain what you were doing there for so many years while we were there missionaries. We were involved in church planting on the message at work at the rate of the Turkish government gave her holding me with military and eyes and supportive terror groups in helping to plan a coup attempt, but the real reason behind that was first it was driven by religious persecution.

They wanted to make an example of somebody and they chose me, and then they started to use me as as leverage trying to gain confessions from the US at least 23 years ministry in Turkey with minimal problems in a predominantly Muslim country. Nothing like this to you face and then all the sudden is you said they wanted to make an example of you and the charges got more and more serious but you know that this administration was committed to getting your release of a turkey being a NATO ally, had no excuse whatsoever, and the Trump administration went so far in your case.

Pastor Brunson first to threaten sanctions and then turkey thought while they dealt with the past administration that make these threats they will actually do it to a NATO ally.

Then, when they'd did not release you on the day the President said they muster sanctions would kick in. Sanctions kicked in on two of their cabinet officials and the next round was going to be on their entire economy.

So this administration was willing to issue what did put in place sanctions on Turkish officials and the next step is going to be sanctions on the entire Turkish economy. If you are released. That's how dedicated present trumpet his team were to getting you home and I will tell you was as attorneys pastor Brunson work on a lot of these cases it really does matter who is in the White House it has in the past. I will tell you it could be like pulling teeth to get their attention to even get their attention and they certainly aren't threatening sanctions to get Americans home because of their faith. Pastor recount for everybody. For a moment what it was like when you finally got to the airport and on the airplane although ugly. We were hoping that we could clear Turkish airspace and before they change their lack of put me back in prison and when we arrived we were on an Air Force plane that the present trumpet sound and when we arrived at an airport in Germany. I went down the let me say this before you get to that part.

Your in the airplane. I want people to understand this you're flying but you're still concerned until you clear Turkish airspace.

Well, that's when we knew that we were really out of Turkey get back to you arrived, and an Air Force base in about 2 o'clock in the morning. I think in Germany right now. So we came down by my wife and I came down the stairs of the claimant and there was somebody waiting for and I found out that it was Richard Grenell that the US ambassador to Germany and he was standing there with an American flag and handed it to Nantes that welcome home and I just buried my face in the flag on. I was so grateful for all that my country had done for me and I talked to director Grenell about that moment, then came that eventually became a course, the director of national intelligence and I talk to about the moment when you gave, I thought it was for so I appreciate it so much that he came out at 2 o'clock in the morning I to meet you but he said that moment with you and him and the American flag is something that's indelibly prescient in his mind, your love of country or love of the Lord and your your just the emotional moment of that.

It is a picture that literally went around the world to me that that that picture out of the habit. But the I will tell you something I for all of us.

I was a very moving moment, and I'm so grateful that the President, the State Department cc Hoffer, Martin worked at Rick Robert Purnell by the weight ambassador to Germany. Now, the former director of national intelligence work tirelessly on Euripides that he was a diplomat. They are high franking to plan to add the most powerful economy in in Europe and is Germany so he was involved in and concerned and is just a great effort and I'm just so glad you're doing well and it was great seeing there you yet. See you there yesterday. I thought it was great opportunity.

Pastor Brunson for you and Pastor Nairn as well because his icing early and a lot of people don't follow politics and watch cable news closely met at listening, even broadcast, like ours, even a Christian radio. But a lot of people watching last night as I'm talking right now. People watch on Facebook and periscope there is that scene with master Grenell the time there with a pastor Brunson, his wife just stepping off the plane at the American base in Germany as pastor Brunson said, burying his face really that American flag at out to in the morning US investor Jeremy coming out to to greet him and to welcome him back to safety.

Let me say this, though. Pastor Brunson by going back yet again.

I know that more people saw your story last night and even when you first went to the White House and prayed for the present because more people who usually don't tune in to cable news or follow politics closely doing its Presidential election years and I'm just encourage that more people learn about the plight of persecuted Christians that you were able to be there as a representative of someone who unfortunately had to go through that and I don't know if people realize how unprecedented the attention to the banter to helping American authority kind of dust overseas and especially for a religious freedom that this administration has pushed. It is very unusual.

Experian usual and I think President got involved in and negotiating for people at my level and but the numbers you see the difference. This President actually does pass presents now I can tell you the most previous, past, present, absolutely not. And at this present he picks up the phone when he put out the tweet pastor Brunson while you were in prison.

Said I would put sanctions on these two Turkish officials tomorrow.

If you're not out you were out. He put the sanctions out. He called their bluff and then he said to Mario sit if it's not done by the next day give a date of putting a sense of the entire Turkish economy, which would put them into a downspout. And guess what. So he put that statement on his own, not through the State Department on his own pastor Brunson my final question he was this test. Talk Pastor Nairn for those you for people out there who have it fall your your case closely.

I tell people what you're doing today while we have started a nonprofit called weight starters and focused on the Muslim world. We got got called to work with and we still have that call rights-of-way starters is the organization tricky check that out online for pastor Brunson's new organization and what is called to do.

Pastor is always said I was honored to represent you and your family and that even now, you know, just say the three years. Two years later it's so great to have you back home in the United States.

Thank you very much for taking my call. I did enjoy the RNC convention last night and it was very informative and I really enjoyed Nikki Haley and another Tim Scott compound parking for them because if my home state, but other than that they were very, very good in their in their speech and in what they had literally done to trying to set the record straight from what the Democrats try to write all that that President comp had done and I enjoyed Nikki Haley and how he literally spoke out and saying that the Democrats were on the wrong road and on the road of socialism and that we as a nation have so many many people who have gave their lives for this country to let it fall into the hands and policies, and Tim Scott literally to set the record straight and literally I I hope maybe open the eyes of many of the Democrats who work you know all that and believing what was told to them by the Democratic committee, but I just enjoy all that was done and I think that that would really be an eye-opener.

If the news media was not so biased in making sure that each side is told what people they couldn't be bias during the middle of it. They got to hear the message for so many ways now to get the message to digitally through different broadcast on your phone on your computer on your tablet that if there is there to vote.

May they care about is the kind of figure out who to vote for. This is kind of the first thing you watch in the next things. The debates really in a cell within eight weeks and maybe I want to play first. Nikki Haley because should she come to the contrast which on for the foreign-policy side member hurt her service as a pastor to the United Nations's this is Nikki Haley, who does it deliver the speech right before the keynote speech tonight delivered by Tim Scott by tonight.

Robert let North Korea threaten America President Trenton rejected that weakness. We pass the toughest sanctions on North Korea story Obama and I, get away with murder and literally sent them a plane full of cash, President, Trenton did the right thing and ripped out the Iran nuclear deal, Obama and Biden led the United Nations to denounce our friend and ally Israel President Trenton moved our embassy to Jerusalem. And when the UN tried to condemn. I was proud to cast the American veto. This President has a record straight, and success. The former vice President has a record of weakness and failure Sherry Stone in California.

She had Nikki Haley do foreign-policy back-and-forth this one folks receipt on different California online Tishri. She walked to Jacek your life, I can't help I wanted to mention I watched last night as well. I know after watching it even during it with energetic idolizing patriotic to hear many real Americans, not celebrity either pre-or politicians sharing testimonies and stories. It was extremely uplifting and they recapped on so many of the wonderful things that the current administration has accomplished, which is a huge glass that no one in the mainstream media ever shares anymore which is positive and energetic and I cannot wait to that in November encouraged by your comments received. We precede that's how the night ended.

It was with Sen. Tim Scott talking about the greatness of America in which Democrats don't like talking many more that were exceptional country that we are land of opportunity that was the theme of the night. He never had to say that word and yet you understood what Tim Scott was St. we have the Bible, he says, and literally from the cotton fields to conduct line display that food for me by that. That is powerful coming from Tim Scott in direct contrast to what you were taught told last week about the country. My grandfather's 99th birthday would've been tomorrow growing up here the cross the street. If a white person was coming. He suffered the indignity of being forced out of school as 1/3 grader to pick cotton.

We never learned to read or write yet he lived long enough to see his grandson become the first African-American to be elected to both the United States house and the United States Senate in the history of this country.

Our family went from cotton to Congress in one lifetime and that's why I believe the next American century can be better than the last. There again, I was powerful statement of the night and job but there is a lot about school choice last night. First really brought was brought up by a Democrat house state rep in Georgia in Georgia currently elected from a county readmission event Vern Jones and he talked about school choice to and what Pres. Trumper. They say he their time at present trump for HBCUs justly, others are historically black colleges and universities that a lot of those in Georgia, especially in Atlanta near where Vernon Jones represents it. So here's representative Jones by 87 historic funding to HBCUs, and he guaranteed it 14 years something has never happened in the history of this country that gave her HBCUs stability. The chance to grow and produce the next generation of black leaders. That's right, Donald Trump did that these also supported school choice tissue that no child, no matter their race, or ZIP Code is left behind. Every child should have access to quality education to say something here because Jordan Logan really wanted to launch this initiative on the schools and when I see the results and look at their heartbreaking cases.

Sometimes you can get resolved but when I see that computers have actually been given to parents. I could afford them, or access to broadband is been given or special needs kids and been given special arrangement food delivered intelligent it's worth all the work that were doing at the ACLJ that your supporting to help those parents, yet I could.

We didn't have time to get to Tim.
