You don't want to to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don't want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy -- and I will. I've already given you a little sample with respect to Pastor Brunson," the president said. Andrew Brunson was a captured
American pastor held by the Turkish government. President Trump used a mixture of diplomacy and economic pressure to get him freed.
